I have recently moved to a new rented flat and wanted to set up BT unlimited infinity. Unfortunately, I was told that the cabinet that serves the property is currently full. My quandry is whether I should keep checking the availability (https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html) or whether I should instead sign up to the basic service and then upgrade later. How does the waiting list work? Would I definitely be offered the option to upgrade when it becomes available? Or is it better to wait and only buy when there is definitely availability? I see you also get a different hub with the two packages.
I have attached a screenshot of the availability for my neighborhood.
Thanks in advance!
Thanks for the speedy response.
If were to start off with the standard broadband, would I then have to pay full price (rather that the reduced rate for new customers) when I upgrade?
Also, do you have an idea or and estimate of how frequently ports become available in cases like this? Is it usually on the order of days/weeks/months?
