Re: How long does it take for a cabinet to get power......

Go to solution

Well yesterday was the day. Ordered 2nd Feb, finally activated for infinity 2 on 4th March

 

Managing to hit 76/20 on my laptop and very similar on my phone and wireless on my laptop. It's the end of a long and frustrating wait of 2.5 years nearly.

So glad your sorted, we are still.. sat at 3 meg with 2 kids and a wife, plus me battering the connection. Openreach checker says that we are back to DESIGN stage? yet the boxes are within 200m distance of the house. 

 

Really taking the pi$$ now, even speaking to local councillors, nothing seems to happen.

 

The date just keeps dropping back, and 4g is not an option, as coverage is very poor.

 

I would be interested in speaking to the twitter team, or anyone who actually has some INFO 🙂

@loopyonion 

 

Only openreach have this information and its hard to get an answer

 

There is a contact form on their website you can use and you'll have to keep trying until a human answers.

 

This was the only useful information I found.

 

The BT care team are great once they have info from openreach.

Cabinet number: 34 apparently, if i check the cabinets further away, towards prescot, but the same exchange in St Helens, then that date is 4 months. Awaiting for power... But.. we know that takes 2-4 years for power to be turned on.
