Re: Wrong Street cabinet fibre

Its not possible for you to be wired to the wrong cabinet, as the external network is fixed.

 

See https://www.homeandwork.openreach.co.uk/help-and-support/when-can-i-get-fibre.aspx

 

"There is another cabinet nearby that is already accepting orders accepting orders, can I get fibre broadband from there instead? 

 

No, the network over which fibre broadband is provided is bespoke, and all premises are served from dedicated fixed distribution points. Many lines are connected via their own overhead or underground link to a nearby green telephony cabinet. There are no interconnections that could be used to move a line from one cabinet to another."

 

 

Its possible that the database was wrong when you ordered.

 

If you can please provide the information I asked for, then it will become clearer.

Re: Wrong Street cabinet fibre

Or it's an infill cabinet and the customer hasn't been switched over as intended.

Can you post the results for the Wholesale checker as above. Also if you could provide a postcode, that would help us look into it further.

Re: Wrong Street cabinet fibre

Which cabinet were you told you were wired to?

It's very odd for the cabinets to have such high numbers which makes me more inclined to think this is an infil cabinet. Could you take a picture of the cabinet and post it up here for me to see?

Re: Wrong Street cabinet fibre

Hi, I haven't been told anything by BT I just happened to speak with the 2 engineers but they tell different stories, so don't know cab number. There are 3 cabs 2 small 1 taller, think I'm in the smaller one, will try pic when at hotspot as poor signal on mob and now over data limits, many thanks

Re: Wrong Street cabinet fibre

Ok, took pic can't see how to insert or paste on a phone, 2 cabs, 1 taller newer with the stickers on, other older with 601 and is where I spoke to engineer, cab where have been told wired to is 2. Spoke to another engineer this am, possible that wired to 2 as lot of issues when contractors fulfilled, which means any other supplier would have same issue, how would this get resolved? Many thanks
