Getting so fedup now with the speed i'm getting.
This has been a gripe of mine since 2011 when Infinity first started getting rolled out.
I've been in my property since 2006 and eversince I heard mention that BT Infinity was being rolled out i've been trying to get it.
When I got wind that my Exchange had been enabled for Fibre I tryed to order only to find out that i then had to wait for FTTC to be enabled. Long story short, when I got wind that the Cabinet was going to be enabled, I chucked my order in. I was then gutted to find out that due to the distance from my house to the cabinet being over 500 meters, this would mean that the Copper Loop Infrastructure is insufficient and that a Small percentage will not benefit from the new fibre installation due to “Loop Distance”.
I ended up on something called "Faster Broadband" which is giving me 22Mbps (download) which is sufficent but its the 1Mbps (upload) which is still killing me.
(That said, I can’t quite understand why my housing estate was built, that it was connected to Cabinet 7 instead of Cabinet 15)
Having revisiting this issue every 6mths, I can't believe that nobody in BT can help me.
As you can see above, FTTPoD "Is Available" but I can't find out how for the life of my how I order it, or atleast get a quote for it.
Came accross this link which gave me a bit of hope that FTTPoD will now be a little more affordable;
Can ANYBODY throw any light onto this as i'm now 6 years down the line and still no better off;
I'm actually contemplating moving house now i'm that sick of it !!
Your absolutely right in that Cab15 has no capacity, but when the properties were built in 2000, I dont get why they were connected to Cab 7 instead of 15, the estate should have had its own Cab.
When you say installation costs are circa £6k and monthly rental is circs £360p/m, yes, thats far more than I would be willing to pay. What exactly is required for fopr FTTPoD, whats the process, road digging etc ?
Are they up to date prices btw ?
I'd still like to contact somebody for an official quote, any idea how I go about that ?
