Infinity availabilty

Go to solution

Does anyone know how long I have to wait?  Friends in the Chippenham area already have it but when I do the landline check it says it is not available.  We currently have the Total Broadband full package.

 

I've tried the test mentioned in the sticky and it doesn't say anything about my line supporting fibre optic technology.

Hi John,  Just tried it and the map key had a green accepting orders marker.  Under the Exchanges already accepting orders, Chippenham is marked as available.  Does this mean I can get it then, and if so who should I call?

Go HERE and enter your phone number to see if it's available to you.

 

Not all cabinets are enabled before the exchange starts accepting orders.

An exchange goes live as 'accepting orders' as soon as the first cabinet on the exchange is live. Best thing to do is put your number into pippincp's link as this is the most recent and up to date information in regards to what's available to your line or postcode.

Hi,  I did as suggested and received this: 

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 2Mbps.

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 4Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 3Mbps and 5Mbps.

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 5.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 4.5Mbps and 6.5Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 1Mbps and downstream line speed of 5.5Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 4.5Mbps and 6.5Mbps.

 

Is it just a case of waiting until it is enabled then?  I assume BT are still opening it up to new areas.

Hi templar, you may get an estimated date of when fibre optics becomes available to your telephone number or postcode, it will look something like this:

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 30th June 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 65.3Mbps and upstream line speed of 20Mbps.

This information will pop up underneath of what you have just posted.
