How do i find out which premises have been passed for me to approach them to see if they want to contribute to create a linked order?

one of the bt checkers was showing the distribution point id, but I can't find it at the moment.
however, I did also find that mouselike makes this information available (as well as accurately placing the cabinet on the maps)

yes you need to check all the local addresses to get the info

or if its off a telegraph pole, just look at the wires!

Ours are all underground from the cab.

Just thinking it through, Iím sure itís all our neighbours as including us, itís 4 properties in a row, and it seems we are all fed from the same chamber.

Purely guesswork though.

I might call Cerebus and see how much info they are willing to pass over.

as I said above, the mouselike link displays the copper dp id. so try each of the addresses, and a few others near by.

the info it lists
(for a random pub in holborn, london)

It's the main fibre "when and where" page, but the result is hidden and you need to extract it using developer tools. More info in this thread, with step-by-step guide here.

Note: using this for myself and neighbours, I find 14 properties on the same DP, all down one side of my road. This was also the number of "properties passed" I got for my desktop quote.

However, when I got my final FTTPoD survey, it said only 3 properties passed - myself and two neighbours. I believe these are properties sharing the same pavement chamber, as there's one every 2 or 3 properties.

So it's not necessarily the case that all the properties sharing the same copper DP will be activated for fibre.

Ah sorry, misunderstood!

Just tried my postcode and house number and i get..

"Down for the moment due to BT API changes. Try again tomorrow."

However, if i put in my immediate neighbour, his works.

If i try my other neighbour, its gives this instead of mapping..

"Google Maps Platform rejected your request. This IP, site or mobile application is not authorized to use this API key. Request received from IP address 209.93.105.216, with referer: https://www.google.com/"

I have tried the variuos links you have supplied, but the links from those, i dont think are the same anymore.

On the 'When and Where' page, there is not anywhere to enter phone number etc.

Looks like my installation will be completing soon now. Latest update is that the external build has been complete and just waiting for test results of the CBT and splitter

I just checked the dsl checker and my address is now showing: FTTP on Demaind | 1000 (Downstream) | 220 (Upstream) | Avaliable!

Next week or 2 hopefully and done.

It Works For Meô (Chrome / macOS). However it's very Javascript-heavy, so if you have any sort of Javascript blockers, cookie blockers or maybe even ad filters it may not work.

Above the box "Fibre Journey" it starts with a "I'm not a robot" recaptcha. When you click on this, it reveals the box to enter a postcode or phone number.
