My Cabinet that I am connected to in the village has a shiny new FTTC cab installed right next to it.
My question is whats the timescale for a normal go live from the moment the cab is installed? bt wholesale checker on using my phone number says its not available, but the postcode checker says it is available and it will be Dec 2013.
But on checking BT openreach site the map checker says Jun 2013.
So my question is whats the rough time to go live from installation.
Hello AlanP, use this link here to check.
At the top it should say your phone number, exchange and cabinet. If it doesn't mention a cabinet number it means you're connected directly to the exchange and not via a cabinet. This meaning you will not be able to get FTTC.
If you're connected to a cabinet but it doesn't give you estimated dates for FTTC, that means your cabinet isn't currently in the rollout plans.
Two months as a quesstimate, i think that's how long mine took from cab install to be able to order.
Cheers Skappy 🙂
If it doesn't mention FTTC like you said when you enter your phone number into the BT Wholesale checker means it will not be available to you. The reasons are in my post as stated. Also, the dates are only placeholders it depends if they get any blocked ducts.
ok, but if I know 100% I am served by cab 56, can the phone checker be wrong?
In VERY rare cases yes, but more than likely it is correct.
