Superfast broadband may not be as far away as we think.
Today I went to the BT broadband checkerand got the following results.:-
You are connected to cabinet number 12 on the Brandon exchange.
Your area is enabled for Fibre but your cabinet is not ready yet so you can’t place an order today. It is in our plans to be upgraded and we update this info weekly, so please check back later. (check here)
Looking at the details of our fibre “journey”
You’re scheduled to be upgraded and we’re surveying your area to make sure our initial fibre plans will work in your community. You can’t order a fibre service today but typically it’ll be available to your premises within the next nine months.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that even if/when the cabinet is upgraded we may still be two far away from it and not actually benifit from it as the BT solution is only fibre to the cabinet with the last bit still being good old copper wire!!!.
