I live on a estate that abouts 9 years old now and we have a 2mb connection. WOW.
Our exchange (Sittingbourne) is BT infinity enabled and I have found out that friends closer to the exchange and further away than me have Infinity so why on earth can we not get it.
I tried the only checker for it to only say its not currently due to roll out in our area.
Seems crazy that they have it behind me and infront and miss out the middle.
You ring them up to ask when they expect to roll out in my area and they havnt a clue. I was even told my exchange wasnt infinity enabled.
Does anyone at Bt actually know what their talking about?
Somebody must have a schedule for roll out or do they not plan things nowadays and pick somewhere at random?
No I don't think anyone at BT knows what is going on. Why do i say this because from my time trying to find out what is going on with my Exchange and these are some of the answer's I've had from BT:-
My Exchange is not in the roll out plan for FTTC, Delayed due to lack of cable & lack of DSLAM Cabs (Even tho the cable and Cabs are installed and hve been connected up and are humming), lack of staff, bad weather.
Now for the best 1 of all, My Dad can now have FTTC (he's 85 and is happy with his 1meg speed) so I asked why I couldn't have it if he can??? After a check Infinity sales told me the reason was that my dad was on a different exchange to me, ok what exchange is my dad on please? Llantrisnat I was told Ok what exchange am I on please? OH Llantrisant!! Umm hang on ok got it your dad is on Llantrisant 1 & you are on Llantrisant 2??. Are you trying to tell me there are 2 exchnage's in Llantrisant? Yes that's correct, rubbish i say the 1 and only exchange in Llantrisant was opened in 1928 and it's the only 1, no sir it's not, Are you saying the only exchange is split in 2?? No sir there are 2 seperated exchange's. No matter what i said he was not having it, so i gave up The BT Openreach guys I spoke to the other tho that was a good 1 and had a good
laugh. Just checked this moning and my exchange is now ready to go according to 3 of the BT checkers but can't order as my exchange is not slated for FTTC. so work that 1 out cheers
