This line is on a Market A Exchange.

In order to be eligible for handback, downstream speed should be less than Downstream Handback Threshold values.

Throughput/download speeds will be less than line rates and can be affected by a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.

The Stop Sale date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2012; the Formal Retirement date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2014.

If the End User wishes to migrate from their current Broadband supplier they will need to contact the Broadband supplier they want to take service from to arrange for the service to be migrated.

As you can see, you're no longer on an EO line, you're connected to cabinet 2.

The cabinet has the fibre and power connected to it, it's going through the commissioning process where it's all tested etc, and hopefully should be ready to take orders anytime in the coming weeks.

If you can find cabinet 2 (it's usually painted in white on the cabinet) and it's fibre twin (or it may be an all in one cabinet) keep an eye on it. When the lock on the AIO or fibre twin is changed to a high security silver lock, the cabinet will be active within a couple of days.

There's quite a bit of work involved in installing the new cabinet. The speed increase will likely coincide with the cables being routed through the cab and possibly rerouted on a short route as I mentioned earlier.

Just keep a look out for the magic silver lock 🙂
