Gentlefolk,

Just a small word of caution that the list does not necessarily mean that every PCP will be provided with a FTTC.

Kind regards,
Walter

Hi Walter,

good point,just because the exchange is fttc enabled doesn't mean that every home pulling of that exchange will have a fibre optic connection.

So @ Zoe I wouldn't feel too  8) just yet.  ;D

Hi Des,

For Joe public, only by looking or nabbing a passing BT Openreach engineer.

For those who need to know such as Communications providers, some can access BT records to give an approximation of the location.

If you were to pm Ezzer he might be able to help you or possibly if you were to give us your postcode somebody might be able to help.

Kind regards,
Walter

Thanks, waltergmw. SamKnows says my exchange, CMEARD, has an RFS date of 1/9/2010. My postcode is CV5 8GT, if anyone could do me a favour  :-X

Hi again DES,

BT's cable routes sometimes do quite strange things so I suspect you might need a good pair of walking boots !
Railways certainly don't help either.
Using http://www.uk.map24.com/ I see your direct road distance is about 1.54 km.
If you want to have a go I'd start with the B4107 and then perhaps the B4106.

Sometimes you'll find that cables are routed directly from the exchange on shorter routes, and I've yet to hear of those getting a FTTC service at all; they tend to be on the shorter routes with a reasonable speed on a 21CN WBC service. This should be available to you as it was enabled in July last year.

I've sent you with PM of an idea.

Kind regards,
Walter

Thanks again, Walter. Does FTTC require new street furniture? Are there any pictures available of what the cabinets look like. I suppose I could hire a band of street urchins to track them down, a penny a peice  8)

Yes, FTTC cabinets are larger. You can see some photos here for example.

Since I won't be walking anywhere.
I've come up with a Not Perfect .. But good enough for Me .. Idea!

Google Street Maps  :D

So Far... Found 2 green telephone boxes.
But neither of them look like shiny new FTTC cabinets  :no:


First One
Knew where to look for this one as it's been there since I was a child.
However!
1) It's Really Old!
2) It's in the opposite direction to the exchange ( Approx 1 minutes walk up the road )


Second One
1) Still Looks Old!
But...
2) It is in the direction of the exchange ( Approx 2 minutes walk down the road )
And...
3) Has a telephone pole right next to it.

Hi  :)


Can I ask a question please  :blush:

Do telephone lines go from one pole to another pole until they reach the exchange?
OR
Do telephone lines sometimes get taken from a pole - to - Underground .. at some point?

Coz!
If I use Google Street Maps to follow our telephone line...
Can follow down the street to approx 5 telephone poles - & - Then there's.. Nothing!
The poles seem to stop connecting to each other  :-\

Also!
I've now realised that one half of our street ( Connected to one Pole ) follows one path to the exchange.
&                                                               <-  ->
The other half of our street ( Connected to a different Pole ) follows a totally different path to the exchange.


Thanks!
