Re: Fibre finally comes to EO line


[re: sparky_paul] [link to this post]
 
Well, last week while I was out, someone came back and filled in the hole again. I don't know what was done, if anything.

Anyway, the third installment on roadworks.org starts today, that's a fortnight digging up the road to install new ducting. No sign of anything happening yet...

A week on, and no holes in the ground.

roadworks.org entry gone today, replaced with another with a new date, 18 Apr - 1 May.

Well, the ducting work was supposed to have started yesterday, but no sign of any digging yet. Over the last week or so, there has been someone spotted working in the new cabinet, and also up some of the poles to be served by the new cab.

There have also been some changes on the checkers too, with CodeLook now stating "FTTC being Connected, live due by July 2018" for the new cabinet P5, and also dslchecker.bt.com now has a new VDSL section, with line speed figures and a WBC FTTC availability date showing "Planned".

Noticed one odd thing, if I check the address checker on dslchecker.bt.com, it now says that FTTC is "Available". Checking the phone number still says "Planned".

Well, first bit of the ducting was installed at the end of last week, from the new cab to a point 40 yards down the verge, where they are forced onto the road. Hopefully, they will be back today to start digging the road up.

It "might" be done, but needs to progress in the system, I say keep checking every day or two with and without you phone number.

It might be a week or two before its fully live, but this is all just guess work.

What does the BT Openreach Where and when page say you can get?

That's showing the same -

If you use the postcode and address, it's now at "Superfast Accepting Orders", but showing the old cabinet number 4.

If you put the phone number in, it's still on "Connect", but is showing the new cabinet P5.

Up until a few days ago, both used to say cabinet 4 and fibre enabled, but too far from the exchange (3+ miles EO line).


In any case, it's nowhere near done, they are digging the road up as I type, installing 130m of ducting. I was just curious about the checker anomaly.

[re: sparky_paul] [link to this post]
 
Haven't gone back to previous posts, but going by your current post I am assuming you went from an EO line to cabinet 4, to then new cabinet 5.
If so the following might be valid.


Ok, just skimmed through previous replies, maybe BT moved the EO Lines to their nearest cabinets, yours might be too far for cabinet 4 so they installed P5 and maybe the address information hasn't fully processed in the system where as the phone number has.

Did the Where and when page say you were on cabinet 4 or 5 for the address and phone number?

Ok, well I would trust that more than the BT Wholesale Checker.

You were probably first moved to cabinet 4 but was too far to get FTTC so you are possibly being moved to cabinet 5 which is at the connect stage.

The distance to the exchange has nothing to do with getting FTTC or not, you are most probably too far from the cabinet (i.e. P4) hence the move.

That's because they are still connecting up your cabinet.

We are still on the EO line, and the cabinet 4 is back at the exchange. Our new local AIO cabinet P5 isn't connected yet.
