Cabinet is FTTC enabled but no date for Fibre Availabilty

Hi,

 

I'm in the process of buying a house which is connected to https://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/EANAC

 

There is no fibre broadband available or any date when it will be available but the cabinet is FTTC / FTTP.

 

Please can anyone explain why fibre wouldn't be available, as I'm a bit confused.

 

Thanks for any advice that is provided.

 

Peter

Fibre is avaiable in some areas.

 

If you use this checker it will tell what cabinet you are on and what services it can receive.

If it does not show a cabinet number it will be because you are on an Exchange Only(EO) line. This means you can not get Infinity because you are not connected to a cabinet, instead you are connected directly to the exchange.

Sometime in the future Openreach may install a cabinet out side the exchange and this will allow EO lines to connect to a cabinet. This however is not high on their priority list so may take some time.

Use your phone number. If you don't have a BT number use the address checker. It is more accurate than the post code checker which can cover more than one cabinet.
