A light at the end of a tunnel

Just seen a guy working on the cabinet that provides my street, I double checked that it was no.28 he said yes, I asked when is it going live, he said he didn't know but it shouldn't be too long now as he has just turned it on, all we have to wait for now is BT, so hopefully not too long now. 😃

So what do BT do now it's switched on and how long will it be before I can place an order?

Re: A light at the end of a tunnel

There is no set time scale. It can take months depending on a variety of things all coming together.

Re: A light at the end of a tunnel

If you stand beside the new caninet can you hear the fans. If so then activation close if nothing then not ready yet

Re: A light at the end of a tunnel

It may be he was connecting the power but in my own case there was weeks between power installed and activation. If fans working them my cab was live in less than a week

It can take some time for a FTTC DSLAM cabinet to be fully commissioned and set as ready to accept FTTC orders.
As you can see from the above, your cabinet 28 is still in the process of being commissioned/installed. 

 

As recommended by others your best to keep checking the BT Wholesale database at http://dslchecker.bt.com/adsl

 

Hopefully it won't be long till you can order FTTC fibre broadband such as BT Infinity.
