Nice find - and knowing which Exchange area's are pencilled in right up to 2024, that I am aware of within my own work area that is ... I'd say that is bang on the money !!

I take it that if you live in a shack deep in the woods in an exchange area that the odds of getting fttp still are close to zero.

I'm in a fairly populated place so I'm hoping I'm in the initial plans for the area.

They've still not updated the Availability Checker though, just the map and the PDF.

Thanks for this - I couldn't find it this morning!

Just as well I wanted to look, BT have announced FTTP plans for my area :) (Or at least they've specifically called out the exchange that I am connected to)

And indeed, the map now shows where I live in Red (In plan).

Happy days, it's a start.

Now begins the constant refresh to see it change from red to yellow to purple!

I know the feeling well :) We changed to purple back in Jan 2020, with surveying and work starting in September (one of the first rural builds) and finally went live in the last few weeks!

Its worth the wait!

Map doesn't seem to work very well at present.

Openreach were kind enough to tell me Wandsworth is in scope to be done by the end of 2023.

Ah so we're looking at 9-12 months from now? Not terrible - least we know it's coming. I've tried to find out a better ballpark date for our area.

Not even in the planning stage where I live. I suspect I'll be on FTTC for many more years  :(

We showed up on the map in February 2020 roughly, and whilst loads of area's around us are going live, apart from our estate being surveyed, nothing else has happened, as we are DIG, so being left to last as more expensive to do  :(

I've seen OR putting new kit on poles in my area too lately. Is this indicative of anything?

Depends what they have been fitting! If its a CBT, or splitter then it looks good :)

You might want to check yourself into the hospital for that. ;)

If it looks like any of these then time to get excited.
