BT Infinity Cabinet Checker

Is there somewhere I can check if/when the cabinet nearest me (SN1 4GN) is going to be upgraded for Infinity? I can see the exchange nearest to me already has.

 

I'm currently with Sky, but my broadband is next to useless! Generally somewhere between 1-4mbps, although the top end is only really off-peak!

I have checked your postcode on the hacked Open Reach database from December 2011, and it's not on there.

 

But it may well be now, so keep checking the BT website:

 

http://www.bt.com/infinity

 

Do be aware that you cannot get Infinity without having a BT line first - many people have had problems trying to do both at the same time.

 

Once you know that Infinity is coming to you (although dates do normally slip), you may want to get a BT telephone line so that you can order Infinity once it is enabled.

 

You can watch out for the new fibre green cabinets being installed, which should be within about 100m of the old style (smaller) green cabinets that BT use for non fibre service.

Re: BT Infinity Cabinet Checker

This is slightly misleading.

 

True, you cannot get "Infinity" without a BT Line.  But Infinity is just BT's branded version of FTTC.

 

Sky and many other internet providers have their own FTTC products.  If you didn't like BT for their normal broadband, don't switch to them for FTTC (Infinity) if your current internet provider has their own FTTC product.
