Hope someone can help.
After spending many hours being pushed round BT's press 1 press 2 fun and games im still suck with no Infinity.
But we cannot order it as we are stuck with 1.2mb broadband (at best)
When checking the online checkers BT's and Openreaches systems show us connected to different exchanges, one of which ISNT fibre enabled.
Normally id be happy to wait, but i beleive unless this solved on the BT database it will never be solved.
BT's stock answer when they dont cut you off its "the computer says NO"....
Any help is appircated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What does wholesale checker show https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html
From that and checking Stowmarket exchange shows that exchange has been upgraded for fibre but your cabinet 35 has not been upgraded and is not in openrach rollout plans
Why has this been so hard for anyone to exsplain to me on the phone.
Also how do we go about getting this cabinet on the plans, I see no reason why a new build house would NOT have an upgraded caninet.
There are numerous posts like yours but i don't think anyone has posted any solution to getting openreach to upgrade your cabinet when not on original plans
oh well, looks like point to point and a small wifi hotspot for the street is in order. 28 house to take business from BT...
Thank you for you help.
Have you tried contacting the Better Broadband to Suffolk website ?
On December 21st 2012, Suffolk County Council signed a £40m contract with BT for superfast broadband. Around 9 out of 10 (i.e. 90% of) Suffolk properties will be able to access fibre-based broadband by the end of 2015. Over 80% of properties will have access to superfast coverage with speeds of 24Mbps or more.
Only 2% of the hardest-to-reach premises are expected to have speeds of less than 5Mbps.
The total contract value is £40m, with contribution from BT (£16m) and BDUK (£11.68m).
I'm also on cabinet 35 in Stowmarket, in a new build. This cabinet must server a large number of houses, and having spoke with a BT engineer, he couldn't understand why the powers at BT ignored this cabinet.
I've tried Better Broadband For Suffolk, but they are aware that Stowmarket has fibre, so therefore rule out any dealings with additional fibre. They're more interested in the other towns and villages stuck on ADSL.
Cabinet 35 (on Swift Drive/Blackbird Way) is just 0.2miles from another cabinet which has fibre, behind Tesco on Kestrel Drive, and the other way 0.5miles on Mortimer Road also has fibre. And another on Gun Cotton Way, 0.3miles away too.
Cabinet 35 is in a blackspot surrounded by infinity. It doesn't make any sense.
