hello am trying to sort out fibre for my area in central newquay cornwall and have noticed a random polee which is connected to another pole outside my estate but neither are connected to anything any engineer can tell me what this polke is for for it was put in this year
Hi @woolfman ,
Openreach doesn't reply here, so you won't hear from an engineer the purpose of this pole.
It is likely to be a telephone pole, and the cable may come from underground; which is why it is not connected to anything.
You can check what broadband is available to you from BT here: https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/
Post results but remove the Cabinet and phone number.
there are no cables running to it and there is another pole about 12 feet away which provides our awful broadband phone lines which sometimes struggles to play netflix and yet on the area checker on open reach it says the area has been done its doing my head in and tried your checker and yes only thins available is hardly 8mb 😞
if you are a bt broadband customer then post dslchecker results from phone number
They may be underground.
While close to 8mbps is not fast, it is enough to play standard definition and high definition (if no one else is online). Have you got a strong wifi signal?
Please post the results from the website mentioned (https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/) and run a speedtest here: http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/
i have strong wifi signal and noone else lives with me cant seem to work out how to copy that page edit it and post it
