I've noticed from the Openreach map that our excahnge is finally accepting orders as of today and my cabinet is in place with sticker on saying fibre is here.
However, when I input my telephone number it doesn't have the paragraph mentioning FTTC. I've checked a telephone number of the other closest cabinet and that one has the paragraph saing FTTC will be ready to order by 31st December.
Does this mean my cabinet isn't turned on yet and I have a long wait still on my 1MB connection?
yes it does mean your cabinet is not yet live once an exchange goes live then it can take from several days to several months before the activate it is just a matter of waiting and keep using the checker
