Exchange Activate Exchanges - information help needed

Go to solution

Hi,

hopefully someone will be able to offer some assistance

 

Our exchange in south west Scotland [Marrburn (WSMAB)] uses the 'exchange activate' technology which is limited to 512 kbps output from the exchange.  I believe this technology was introduced to almost 150 exchanges in Scotland around about 2005.  Since then a high percentage of these have now been upgraded.

 

My question is is there anywhere that anyone knows  that I can find some details of

1.     which exchanges are still 'exchange activate' type.

2.     which exchanges have been upgraded (and when if possible).

 

I have googled evrything I can think of to find a source of data,  the samknows website is of no use.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

All exchanges will be at least 21CN (ADSL2+) by the end of 2018. A number of which will actually skip ADSL2+ and go straight to FTTC/P.

I do not have specific details however. No one on this site will as it's BT Wholesale and Openreach information.

There's a scotlandsuperfast scheme you can get in touch with who may have more information on your specific area.

Thanks very much for this - I realise that you won't have exchange specific details, but is it possible that you could let me know where this 21CN 2018 date is documented please - it would be a great help.  A neighbour is meeting the local MSP (I can't attend) - and wants to be have as much information as possible at hand.

 

I am aware of the Scottish Government's "Digital Scotland - Reaching 100% Programme" which is currently in the Public consultation stage.  I've looked through the consultation document and will be astounded if it comes to anything for rural areas - but I live in hope!

 

Again many thanks for this

I suggest emailing them to see if they have any more information.
