There are other CPs who can provide a BTw WLR landline.


That's what I said 'you need a landline first' - I specifically did not mention any provider

Re: New build - neighbours have access to fibre whereas I don't

I'm back! Ordered standard BT Broadband last week and it was connected today:

 

DSL checker states the following:

 

DSL 091117.jpg

 

Can anyone interpret this? Speedchecker indicates a diabolical 2mbps download speed.

Wait a few days until the database updates, then look again.

 

When you enter your phone number, which cabinet and exchange does it say?

Re: New build - neighbours have access to fibre whereas I don't

Then ADSL is all you can get, the same as your neighbours.

 

FTTP on demand is only available to businesses, and the cost is astronomical.

 

You will need to se if Openreach plan to upgrade your cabinet.
