Stop Sell / WLR Withdrawal No Fibre deals available

Good afternoon, I have encountered a very confusing situation with a property I am moving to in the new year. I have been informed I can only buy BT or Plusnet 8mbps internet for the house.

I pursued this a bit and found that our cabinet is subject to a Stop Sell as the phone line is being withdrawn. Unfortunately, there are no alternative available, and no fibre connection. Would someone be able to explain the situation, and what it means moving forward. If the copper connection is withdrawn, will I lose broadband entirely? 

To make this situation more confusing, before starting the process of purchasing the house, I contacted openreach and was gleefully informed that super fast broadband was available at the property, I now find that it isn't! I just need to know what's going on. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

I used the connection checker tool thing and it returned the following information -

FTTP is not available.

The exchange is not in a current fibre priority programme

As a WLR withdrawal exchange, product restrictions apply

SOADSL is not restricted at the exchange

For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (VDSL or G.fast) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage.

For all SOADSL services,the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage.

Actual speeds experienced by end users and quoted by CPs will be lower due to a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In order to be eligible for handback, downstream speed should be less than Downstream Handback Threshold values.

 

 

If you decide to place an order for a WBC fibre product, an appointment may be required for an engineer to visit the end user's premises to supply the service

 

 

 

 

 

ADSL, ADSL2+ and SOADSL availability: If shown at FTTP or SOGEA premises,ADSL, ADSL2+ and SOADSL are not available to order due to WLR Withdrawal stop sell rules. CPs should order FTTP or SOGEA. Copper products are only available by exception.

Thank you for your interest

@wharfedalelamp 

Please redact the property address for your security.

The fibre cabinet (FTTC) is full with no spare ports hence it's showing Waiting list.

In meantime only SOADSL would be available 

The WLR/PSTN closure is not the closure of copper based broadband but rather the voice service would be delivered over the broadband connection

Redacted. Thanks! Is there the option to be put on a waiting list, or is it a question of waiting till something becomes available?

there is no actual waiting list and just a matter of continually checking dslchecker and when you see available place order

If the property you are moving into currently has FTTC and the  occupant will be cancelling their supply with whatever ISP they use in the near future , then  the cabinet may move to  ‘available’ from  ‘ waiting list’ , but as stated , you need to check regularly and soon as there is FTTC available , place your order as obviously there may be others waiting, in the same situation as you .

There is always a certain amount of churn on FTTC cabinets , so even if the address you are moving into won’t be releasing a port on the FTTC cabinet , that doesn’t mean a port will never  be available , simply keep checking and act quickly.
