GRAYS.ESSEX.
Engineers fitted a G.FAST pod onto my local street cabinet this morning, though they didn't do any wiring.
They had a van full of them so I presume all boxes in my area are getting one.

We've had them for ages round here (one of the original trial areas), still no sign of them going live though....

BT Wholesale has updated dsl checker for my cabinet saying g.fast as planned as 217/35 for my estimated speed on g.fast but there is no g.fast pod on the pcp cabinet 8 yet.

I wouldn't get too excited  ;) Mum's cab had a g.fast pod fitted nearly a year ago. They have just updated the btw and it still says planned even though it's in the trial area..

the planned rate for her is 200/28 or there abouts......

I think BTw data is in the messy up incorrect speed estimated because I have checked next door to my both neighbours on the same terraced houses.

Left is next door is 330/50, Middle is my house is 217/35, Right is next door is 330/50 - doesn't make any sense at all in these three speed estimates compared?

Yeah looks like Openreach have provided some data to CPs and Wholesale have updated their checker accordingly.

A neighbour 150ft away has a downstream handback of 330 on G.fast.

I can confirm based on my own address that a ~500m line is not eligible for G.fast at this time.

If I weren't on VM and weren't to have FTTP next year I'd be modestly sulky.

I just checked all terraced houses and there are four houses are not G. Fast planned and some houses are 330/50 estimated speed but few houses are less than 290/45 as how on earth does openreach can work it out on each houses who will get G. Fast and some are not but all houses are the same side and the same street fibre cabinet 8. Don't understand really how does it work out? Does Openreach know the estmated speed due to LIVE BT Line active while the other isn't (probably using cable virgin media?)

House 1 get 330/50 (Street Fibre cabinet stood there)
House 2 get 286/43
House 3 get 330/50
House 4 Not Planned ** no g.fast
House 5 get 330/50
House 6 get 246/35 (mine house)
House 7 get 330/50
House 8 Not Planned ** no g.fast
House 9 get 281/42
House 10 get 230/30

These 10 houses are closer to the street cabinet 8 approx 250m away.

I've no idea of your street layout, but I wonder how much location of the DP is making to those estimates.

You will likely have many scenarios where someone has a DP at the end of their drive so only need a few final meters of copper, whilst someone on the same cab, but furthest from the DP may need say 50m. 

It all depends upon the layout of the cable, in just the same way as with how on FTTC you have some people very close to the exchange, yet the line distance to the cab is more than double.    Just because you may be nearest to the cab, doesn't mean you have the shortest line length than someone who may live further away, but nearer to the UG joint box.

Thanks kitz. Is it normal for BTW to show up G. Fast on checker even thought the cabinet isn't fitted any G. Fast pod yet. Nothing yet. I thought btw wouldn't updated on the checker until G. Fast pod has installed first and ready for service as planned. Last time I spoken to openreach they say my cabinet will be ready around summer 2018 for G. Fast.

I've tried to locate WNCKO P8 but it is proving to be a rather difficult cabinet to find.

WNCKO P8 isn't on google map because the cabinet is right in front of the public footpath way as the cabinet is behind the house wall there as my house is further down there about 6 houses down the footpath by the fence. See photo attached as it was taken in Feb 2014 when the fibre cabinet has finally stood up and has finished installed.

If you 'Google Maps' ..... Willowfield and/or Wellsfield at Cuckoo Oak ..... the Cab is basically opposite where it shows the 'Spar Self-Service' on the Willowfield side.

It should make sense, if you try the above ??.  :)

Yep the cabinet stood by opposite of the spar self service shop by Wellsfield in there.

Thank you, both.  :)  I'll take another look, probably tomorrow, and see if the location gives some hints as to the variations in output from the checker.

Of course, as we know, the checker will only output an estimate based on information that has been put into the database. So it would need someone to actually subscribe to a service for "real world" data to actually appear.

To be honest 6 houses down the footway path is much closer to the cabinet should getting full speed of g.fast 330/50 but like kitz already told me that mine closer to the cabinet isn't always the case. But 246 down and 35 up from 80/20 is a massive different improvement. I think I have to wait until go live with g.fast to see what my real true speed is like.
