Hi Wonder if anyone could help.
Live on a new development and whilst my exchange is enable for FTTC and the cabinets either side of the estate are FTTC I cannot find out when my cabinet is getting it.
Lots of houses so feel sure that demand should be there as we all get an appalling 1.5mb at the moment.
Can anyone help?
send email here with phone number and exchnage and openreach will repely maybe 10 days with information about your cabinet firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a BT phone line put your number in here http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome
If not, use the address checker http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/ADSLChecker.addressOutput
Both of these will confirm your cabinet number and availability.
All those checkers do is tell me which Cabinet I am on not when it is getting FTTC.
Which is what I am trying to confirm - but thanks
The Openreach Superfast Fibre Broadband Scheme is being rolled out, done and managed by Openreach FOR ALL communication provider/ISPs, so BT Retail (a communication provider/ISP whom operates this forum) does not have much say as to when and if you will be able to get fibre broadband (FTTC or FTTP or equivalent) as that is up-to Openreach.
You can try emailing NGA Openreach via email@example.com with the properties landline number, address and pcp(cabinet) number to see if they have any more information regarding upgrading your cabinet.
It looks like your cabinet (pcp) 50 hasn't been upgraded with a new FTTC cabinet.
This could be due to the fact that it is a new estate, and therefore wasn't financially viable for Openreach to install a FTTC cabinet linked to pcp 50 as it would sit there not making any money as properties would still be empty and being developed.
Openreach may revisit the Fibre deployment plans in your exchange area once the current commercial scheme ends.
Though there may be many other reasons why the pcp wasn't upgraded.
Local BDUK fibre broadband schemes provided by your local council or government may help boost the current commercial roll-out to deliver fast fibre broadband, to areas that were not covered by the "Superfast-Openreach" Commercial fibre broadband rollout.
Hope that makes sense,
If the BT Wholesale checker doesn't give a date, you need to ask Openreach via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
