Further to my last post I checked www.samknows.com for you and it says that Castlewellan exchange has been enabled for fttc. I would ring BT and see the latest postion. Let us know how you get on.
Thanks for the info mate...I have been checking these sites out for some time along with http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/adslchecker.php
which, again gives a different result...sam knows said previously it was available, then changed to not available, and about 2 weeks ago changed back to "available"....The BT wholesale line checker was similar (available ->not available-> Oct 31st)...Fasterbroadbandni.com has been swapping dates too..
I spoke to a BT engineer working on the cabinet in the Square in C'wellan last week and asked him...He said KN networks have been replacing the shells on the old GPO cabinets but the innards were the same...He didn't have a clue as to when it was coming (Infinity) but it is DEFINITELY not available yet as there are NONE of the new type cabinets in the area yet...my Girlfriend in Crossgar is getting it (Infinity LOL) and there is one of the brand spanking new cabinets at the end of her drive...
So until I see the new cabinet erected beside my nearest cab I don't beleive sam knows or indeed BT wholesale..When I check the Infinity site and it says it's available, then I will order...
BTW...Is it sales I ring and what is the number and I'll ring it tonight?
by the way folks,wot u think of my adsl settings good r bad.i haven,t a clue wot they mean.

Used to get 6mbit/sec down and 800kbit/sec up on total bb option 3, went down to 0.5mbit/sec for last 2 weeks.
i would be over the moon if i got 6mb dl speed.the fastest dl speed i ever got was 0.90kbps,so i have a lot riding on infinity when i get it installed next month.personally if i was to go up to 3,or 5 mb dl speed i would be over the moon lol.
Rang the number you gave me and got through to Aileen...very helpful lady and it's great to talk to someone when there is no accent barrier...
She says my cabinet will be ready on the 31st October and I can place an order for infinity then.....whoopeee!!!
