My new ISP will be CIX in here: https://www.cix.uk/broadband/gfast as they say it will be openreach managed install with Huawei MT992 Openreach modem as I have to use my own TP Link VR2600 Wireless Router.

How long do I need to wait for new telephone number data to come up? There is no data available for this number. This could be either because it is not a BT line or it is a new BT number that has just been provided. Most new numbers will appear on the checker 24 hours after BT has installed the line

Within 24 hours of the line going live.
Not a minute before.

The order is now cancelled. Because of very poor estimated by CIX saying my line only support by this estimated by BTw.

Down: 101 - 114.2
Up: 9.1 - 12.1

Look like Zen are right spot on did warned me my g.fast line will only get around 114/9. Pointless from VDSL 80/20 to G.fast 114/9

Zen and CIX are both buying the same product from BT Wholesale, talking to the same BTW systems, so will report back the same information.

I'm surprised they'd even let you order it. It's now only supposed to be available to people who have estimates of 120M and above.

I have to ask ADSLMax whether he truly did place an order or was just having some fun teasing as all

His dramatic and volatile life involving his Internet connections is actually better than most things that are on TV at the moment grin

Why is zen and cix saying I would get 114/9 but Cerberus checker say I can get it for 175/21 for g.fast? How can other isp say I would get 114/9 but I wouldn't believe this until Cerberus say my line can do 175/21? Who tell the truth? I have fired off email to openreach to enquired of why some isp's say I get low on g.fast but cerberus seem look fine for 160/30 product when it say I can get 175/21? I don't mind upload of 21 but the download of 175 for these product 160/30 is much twice as FTTC 80/20 to 175/21. But I don't want to order it and later get activated on the line for just 114/9 as I would lose lots of money and stuck on 12 months contract etc.
