yeah doesnt pay to be sitting right on top of the exchange. you need to be connected to a cabinet not directly to the exchange. same problem local to me for some people, they do get 20Mbps though.
If you run this checker it will show what cabinet the house is connected to however it does look as though you are on an Exchange Only line. This means you will not be able to get a FTTC connection anytime soon. There are plans to put cabinets outside the exchange but it is not high on the priority list for Openreach.
As I passed the BT Exchange yesterday I saw some building work going on the pavement. There were fresh concrete slabs laid with 2 cables on each side coming from the ground. I suddenly had a grin on my face.
I went by again today on my way to work and to my surprise, a nice ugly BT cabinet has been placed where the work was being carried! Hoorahh!!!
Is there anywhere at all I can find information on an ETA of this cabinet being live, or if there is anyone I can call? Or does anyone know how long 'roughly' it takes to tranfer everything from the exchange to a cabinet? Am I looking at weeks, or months!?
