Exchange Checker; data way out of date

Does anyone update the Exchange Data web data?

http://usertools.plus.net/exchanges/

My exchange THCY has had ADSL2 for some time, but the Exchange Checker advised that Openreach
have given no data as to when it'll be updated from standard ADSL.

 
Code: THCY
County: Berkshire
Enabled: 15 Oct 2003
Market: 1
Mkt2014: A
Colour: Red BT have not advised a planned date for WBC on 21CN

Re: Exchange Checker; data way out of date

If memory serves "WBC on 21CN" is the modern network "backbone" - your Exchange will still be on 20CN. It doesn't affect broadband provision as such.

 

I believe OpenReach did announce recently that all outstanding Exchanges would be moved onto 21CN but no detailed timetable was given.

@Oldjim I don't think Samknows have updated their data for some time.

My local exchange was fibre enabled almost a year ago yet SamKnows shows no FTTC available

It is mostly about the backbone, but it does also include ADSL2+ broadband at the exchange.

It wouldn't have been OpenReach, it's BTWholesale who are responsible for the ADSL equipment in the exchanges.

"ejs" is indeed correct - it was a BTWholesale news item I was remembering. See
