That's where he would have got the information from. That's all the public information that's available.

Re: Best way to get accurate information about Fibre availability?

The 4 months is a best case scenario with no hiccups. Wayleaves, blocked ducts, power issues, etc can all considerably increase the time it takes. It can sometimes delay it by years as the build teams often move on to other areas where they can upgrade batches of cabinets. It's counter productive to pull those teams away from an area to work on activiting a single cabinet when they could be working on 20.

BT should focus more on the deprived internet areas before filling there pockets by giving people with already fast internet even faster internet. That is everything wrong with the world.

Re: Best way to get accurate information about Fibre availability?

The fire rollout is nothing to do with BT it is Openreach & BDUK that are rolling out fibre for all service providers (approx500) of them of which BT is just one provider

you at least are awaiting a cabinet activation there are still many who are never likely to get fibre services due to distance from cabinets or very small communities unlikely to have large enough numbers to make it financially viable

Re: Best way to get accurate information about Fibre availability?

Yes I know but still its 2016 and openreach act like its no issue for people who are surviving on 2meg or less yet they cant wait to fill there till up and upgrade people who already have 20meg +, all about money nowadays. I'm sorry if i come across as an idiot but its a fact. No one in the world should have less then 10mb let alone people in the UK. Sorry for the rant lads its not fair to take it out on you

Well, actually they don't, some parts of my local city, Exeter, still only survive on ADSL.

Re: Best way to get accurate information about Fibre availability?

I live 4 miles outside of Newcastle, in North Tyneside. An urban new build estate and I don't have fibre yet.

I'm not sure you understand the vast engineerinng task at hand to upgrade the BT network.

I'm not sure what wages have to do with it.
