My local exchange - Baschurch - has rolled out infinity to a local village (some 3 months ago). A new BT manhole has appeared outside my house and engineers have been laying fibre optic cables locally. Samknows says BT are taking orders for Baschurch, but inputting my postcode/phone number leads to 'not available'.
Nowhere on the BT site nor Openreach have I been able to find a planned date for my area. Does anyone have any ideas on how I may find out?
That sounds like Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) - in that case, it remains copper from the cabinet to individual properties. The other way is where the fibre optic 'cable' goes all the way to the subscriber - faster speeds, usually.
BT seems to play it cagey when asked for dates - in my area I was given three separate dates for the availability if Infinity, all of which came and went. In the end I was suddenly told, when making a telephone enquiry that 'you can have it now'.
