Hello, this is my first time posting on here. My problem is that fibre has recently been installed near me and is currently being activated the problem is that I have no information regarding a date that I can expect the fibre service to be activated, we have rung BT many times and recieve varying results on when we can expect a fibre service, we rang up in April and the operator said a fibre service would be availible within 4 months however this is evidently not the case as its september and I am still stuck with god awful ADSL broadband with a line speed of 3Mbps which drops dramatically when more than one device is connected to the broadband, sometimes even loading web pages is a struggle. The most annoying thing is that the neighbours which live 50 metres away have access to a fibre service, which frankly is shocking and I'm lost as to why this is the case and why the activation process is taking so long?
I have been on various websites like the openreach when and where site and the DSL checker and the information provided is next to useless, please can somebody help me get to the bottom of this infuriating issue?
Hi thanks for the quick reply. I'ts been at activate for about 5 months now hence my frustration, any idea on why it's taking so long? And I haven't noticed any lock on the cabinet although I haven't been looking for one. Thanks
there are many reasons such as waiting power being provided possible blocked cable ducts preventing fibre being blown to the cabinet all you can do is wait and keep checking
Strictly speaking all that should have been done under the Connect part of the fibre journey before being moved to the Activate stage as per the descriptions used in the fibre journey. My new fibre cabinet has at last reached the connect stage but the power run needed is at least 90m which has its own problems alledgedly.
