Volunteer Thread (Exchange enabled now or up to 31/03/2009)

Thanks, links fixed.
Mine's March next year, but actually the next but 1 to be done in this region so hopefully it might get done before, the BT data gives a range of January to March so fingers crossed. Might get me above the 750k profile I have now.

I would love to trial, but cant yet.  Go live is March 2009 (blackburn exchange).  Are you keeping a list of who would like to, and their go live datesHuh

Might as well use this thread for that. Assuming everything goes to plan then our current test plan looks roughly like this
November 2008 - 25 staff migrations (done)
December 2008 - 25 customer migrations (currently requesting volunteers)
Beginning of January 2009 - 25 - 50 further migrations
End of January - review progress and depending success rate of orders, fault volumes, any other issues that crop up start to increase the number of migrations with an aim of reaching about 500 customers by the end of March/early April.
Obviously this is very much subject to change and also dependant on a lot of things. For those whose exchanges are currently scheduled to get done by March 09 (myself included) I'll keep a note of your details and can let you know when the exchange is done (or just keep a look out yourself and give me a shout).

It'd be great to be moved over once my exchange is enabled.  Set for March 09 at present... Smiley

Hell yeah, current attenuation of 11, and SNR of 17... should get fairly close to the maximum hopefully. Just have to wait a while Sad

I take it this is also applicable to business customers too?

Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) is BT's next generation broadband product for ISPs. BT are currently upgrading each exchange to be able to offer WBC which will also bring ADSL2+ speeds of up to 24Mbps. We will post updates to the upgrade schedule as and when we receive them and also provide further details on WBC in the coming weeks.

Re: Volunteer Thread (Exchange enabled now or up to 31/03/2009)

Would like to volunteer, but can't yet as my exchange isn't live until 31st January 09.
I don't suppose there's a chance of being in the second round of volunteers?
