Better broadband is coming?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,
I was just checking the Openreach site to check if there is any update on when FTTP might finally reach Farnham. As Swish Fibre have already announced they will include Farnham in their upcoming expansion I figured this might light a fire under OR.... Seems not. The search came back with "Good news – we’ll be upgrading your area to Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) soon".

The odd thing is, we are already FTTC enabled (Farnham cabinet 13). I've seen some markings sprayed on the pavement in red with DSLAM written in the box. I don't benefit from g.fast which is also enabled as we are too far from the cabinet. Any idea what this could mean?

Thanks!

Hi db_FHM,

We plan on expanding our FTTP Full-Fibre to Farnham. The sprayed markings you mentioned are not part of our works.

You can pre-order by visiting www.swishfibre.com or alternatively please forward your address to [email protected] and we'll be able to advise further.

Thanks,

Adrian

Hey DB,

It sounds like you're getting an Infill cab as part of BDUK's final 5% campaign (I got one myself a few months ago).

The Red Markings with DSLAM suggests you're getting a new cab installed near you, which if your current Cab 13 is providing you with Sub 30 Speeds, it's likely you'll be moved on a Live To Live Migration when this Cab is built (as suggested by your OR checker result).

Why around you building all around High Wycombe, but not actually in High Wycombe?

Thanks Whitehall11

I do have 30mb+ but there is a waiting list for FTTC as the cabinet 13 is full. I assume this is a capacity extension... no idea when the works are planned....

Hi AndyPandy,

We're excited to bring Full-Fibre to many locations and are starting with less provisioned areas. You can always register by filling in a few details on www.swishfibre.com and our sales team will be in touch if we're in the area.

Thanks,

Adrian

Hi db_FHM,

The areas need to be surveyed and we will need to be granted various permissions so it's difficult to provide a date.
Register on www.swishfibre.com and we'll be in touch once we're in your area.

Thanks,

Adrian

Less provisioned? Well I suppose HeyBroadband are building here, so that's a miss.

Hi AndyPandy,

We're aware that other ISPs may be building in nearby areas - and that may be a reason why we don't go into these areas as the connectivity in the area should be better. We will be continually reviewing our plans.

Thanks,

Adrian
