Movement for Derberth

 

OpenReach have a roads works advisory for Derberth Grange for the installation of a cabinet (PCP 28) from 10th to 21st April.

 

So those on Exchange only lines can hopefully look forward to FTTC later in the year.

So, according to Kingswells Community News FTTP to Concraig is a street level community initiate to co-fund the up-grade.

 

Hopefully serious efforts are being made to obtain a government contribution to reduce the overall cost the those involved.

There appears to be some movement for faster broadband in concraig gardens, cabinet 20, 

Engineers pulling cable through the existing ducts along the street over last few days. Checked open reach website and now it appears that we're being prepared for fttp which is fibre to premises. If this is the case, we will be set for some seriously fast broadband as the fibre will come straight to the home instead of the cabinet. It's pretty future proof too so fingers crossed this will happen soon.   

James thanks for the feedback. Sounds like good news

Good news for people living in Derbeth - it appears a new cabinet (P28) has been added which is currently showing "FTTC doing Field Survey, live due by December 2016"

A further cabinet (P29) has been listed on the Lang Stracht with the same status.

"Superfast" isn't a word I'd use for this crap. I had BT Unlimited Infinity II (up to 76Mb/s download) installed from Cabinet 11 on Wednesday 2nd July, and was pleased on day 1 to see about 55Mb/s actual download speed and about 6Mb/s upload. Amazing, compared to the 1.7Mb/s connection speed I was getting before. The technician who installed it said it'd fluctuate a bit over the next week before it settled down to something stable.

It didn't fluctuate. It just got steadily slower and slower until, just now, I'm getting 0.5Mb/s down and 0.9Mb/s up. I've spent an extra £10 a month for "up to 76Mb/s" and I'm getting poorer service than the pretty pathetic offering I had before.

I'm not particularly looking forward to an extended session with BT's non-domestic call centre on Monday. Even with aluminium cabling in the ground (despite many broken promises by BT of a copper overlay) the initial speed on installation is what I was expecting and shows that it's possible. More broadband pain.

If anybody else is using Infinity II from Cabinet 11, I'd be interested to hear what kind of service they're receiving.

Cheers,
Bill

Superfast broadband is now available in Kingswells. The map below shows an indicative area of coverage.

Cabinets 11 and 13 are now live, and one other cabinet will be coming live in the next few months.

People can check what services are available at their line, address or postcode at https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html . If you are supplied by cabinet 11 or 13 then you can contact your supplier to see if you can upgrade. Connection is not automatic. You need to upgrade, or transfer to a supplier who is providing this service.

There is some discussion on Facebook, or in the forum on this site.
