Fibre / Infinity availability in Paddington, London

Since I arrived in London Augustus last year I have been interested in BT Infinity. Only the service availabiltiy keeps getting pushed forward. First it got pushed to End of March 2014 and now it got pushed to December 2014. I think that's a bit of a steep jump. Especially when the Paddington Exchange has already been upgraded to support FITC.

 

If you use the bt wholesale checker based on postcode it says:

 

Fibre Multicast------

31-Mar-14

 

If I am looking up by phone number it is:

 

Fibre Multicast------31-Dec-14

 

I have to say I find this really disappointed. The internet is already horrible in the dark ages compared to Switzerland or The Netherlands but pushing it basically to 2015 is this odd. By this time they could just start upgrading everything again to the newest technology 😉

 

Anyone have any insight in this? It's London...

Fibre multicast is for BT TV not broadband. Does the phone check give and speed estimates for your line?

Feel free to move to Switzerland btw.

Maybe I can let them dig a fibre cable for me?

Re: Fibre / Infinity availability in Paddington, London

The postcode check is almost useless. The Full Address or Phone number checkers are accurate though. Looks like you're in for a bit of a wait. Keep checking.

Alternatively you could set up a followthatpage to check for you...
