Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

Hi

 

Further to my last post I checked www.samknows.com for you and it says that Castlewellan exchange has been enabled for fttc. I would ring BT and see the latest postion. Let us know how you get on.

Re: BT Infinity Northern Ireland

@ ijjsimpson

Thanks for the info mate...I have been checking these sites out for some time along with http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/adslchecker.php

which, again gives a different result...sam knows said previously it was available, then changed to not available, and about 2 weeks ago changed back to "available"....The BT wholesale line checker was similar (available ->not available-> Oct 31st)...Fasterbroadbandni.com has been swapping dates too..

 

I spoke to a BT engineer working on the cabinet in the Square in C'wellan last week and asked him...He said KN networks have been replacing the shells on the old GPO cabinets but the innards were the same...He didn't have a clue as to when it was coming (Infinity) but it is DEFINITELY not available yet as there are NONE of the new type cabinets in the area yet...my Girlfriend in Crossgar is getting it (Infinity LOL) and there is one of the brand spanking new cabinets at the end of her drive...

 

So until I see the new cabinet erected beside my nearest cab I don't beleive sam knows or indeed BT wholesale..When I check the Infinity site and it says it's available, then I will order...

BTW...Is it sales I ring and what is the number and I'll ring it tonight?
