Looking forward to it
Just a pity that while I am 'just' in a B4RN 'in planning' area, being on an estate across the road from the farm, its not available to us 'townies'. Shame, with its 1gb up and down speeds its faster than anything else available.
Hi Gary. What website did you check to show it would be available “soon”. Also how long ago did they do the cabling work?
Used the Openreach site https://www.openreach.com/fibre-broadband/fibre-for-home which says 'soon' and the fiber was being pulled in my front garden two weeks ago.
I still expect it to be quite a while before it happens, but at least its not likely to be 'years'.
I suppose we are lucky, they have been pulling lots for the new build and our ducts terminate in the same chambers so I imagine it was a sensible option to pull it through to us while they were at it.
Great thanks - I’ll keep an eye on the checker. They were pulling ours in on Tuesday, connecting to the CBTs in the underground chambers etc. Looking forward to it. Do you know if when you order it you can ask where the ONT is placed? Where our master socket is there is no power sockets at all so ideally would need to go round the back of the house
Openreach pulled the fibre through the ducting in my street and those surrounding about 3 - 4 months ago. At that point was showing on the Openreach site as "soon" but no activity since and actually is now showing "no plans" on the same site. Spoke with OR and they said Sept to me it would go live. Either that site isn't very accurate or my area has been taken out of scope. Neither would surprise me to be honest.
So now 5 months later, the web site is no longer saying soon and now says 'no plans' 😞
However, openreach were in the street today and the team confirmed that the build is almost complete and are doing the 'plan upload' stage (or something like that) and it should show up on the website as available to order in the next couple of weeks.
He also confirmed that they have run enough connections for every house in the street.
But why it shows as 'no plans' on the websire I have no idea.
A bit frustrating, but fingers still firmly crossed.
Wonder if I can get my MicroVax 3300 online 🙂
and so because the openreach site shows only FTTC, I did the register interest for FTTP and have just got an email saying
So its looking better. Amazing it takes this long, but I suppose
A) we only see a small part of the work and
B) CV19 probably got in the way too
