My neighbours either side have fibre broadband but I cant

Hi

I am trying to find some information.

I recently renovated a barn, which was completed and moved into in July 16.

all of my neighbours both before the exchange and further away have got fibre optic, when I go to openreach website and put my number in it suggests fibre is not available, however typing any of my neighboughs shows it is.

We currently have speed of just 2mbs, so the upgrade would be a huge advantage.

Does anybody know why I might not be able to get fibre or could it be a database error which can easily be sorted.

As a side note I did have huge delays with open reach even connecting the phone line here, we were waiting over 6 months, and phone signal is near non existent.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

@Cornwall1 welcome to the community and thanks for posting.  Are you connected to the same cabinet as your neighbours?  If you enter your details into this checker it will advise you what services are available and the cabinet number will show in the results.

Hi, 

 

Thanks for the reply, I am in a different cabinet to my neighboughs which I assume is becuase it is a new line?

 

The link you sent me confirmed this.

 

Is there anything I can do?

if your cabinet, which is different to your neighbours, is not yet fibre enabled there is nothing you can do to get iopenreach to upgrade your cabinet sooner  openreach will not move your current line to a different cabinet just so you can get fibre conenction - this has been covered many times on forum previously
