Open reach says Yes, Infinity says No

Hello

 

My exchange (Shirley west midlands) says now accepting orders on open reach website.

 

However BT infinity checker for my telephone number says 

Sorry, you're not currently able to get BT Infinity. This may be because your area has not been enabled yet, or your individual line does not support super-fast broadband. Register your interest and we'll let you know if this changes.

 

Does this mean our cabinet was left out?

 

How do I find out more?

 

thanks

Re: Open reach says Yes, Infinity says No

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 512Kbps. However, due to the length of your line, an engineer visit may be required, who will, where possible, supply the broadband service.

 

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 1Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 750Kbps and 2.5Mbps.

 

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 1.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 1Mbps and 3.5Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 500Kbps and downstream line speed of 1.5Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 1Mbps and 3.5Mbps.

The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.

If you decide to place an order, a further test will be performed to confirm if your line is suitable for the service you wish to purchase.

Thank you for your interest.

 

Please note that postcode and address check results are indicative only. Most accurate results can be obtained from a telephone number check.

Note: If you already have a Broadband service enabled on this line and you want to switch service providers, you will need to contact both your current provider and your new provider to get your service changed over new and existing service provider to have this service transferred.

Re: Open reach says Yes, Infinity says No

 

This sounds terrible - my current speed is 4mb with o2, multiply this by 1.32?!! that can't be right?!!

 

Speed Increase means multiple your current speeds by this factor to get an estimate of possible download speeds e.g. a factor of 12.5

Re: Open reach says Yes, Infinity says No

The speed increase is only an estimate, however it may be possibe that your are quite far from the cabinet.

 

The rollout phase for your cabinet is to be upgraded anything up to September, so sit tight!
