fttc delayed again

My fttc details disappeared from checker only to return as before March, it started as September then December now stating March the cab is installed so hoping it's a  temp blip. How many times do fttc switch dates get moved back in general before the exchange actually does go live

Can be none, but it can be lots. I think I've seen someone still waiting well over a year.

Re: fttc delayed again

Hi podman,
My exchange (Sharrow) is the same unfortunately, it was set to December 31st and has now been moved to March 31st :/ We'll see if it moves again, I'm hoping not but suspect it will do. I think it's just the way it's being done unfortunately, no idea why though.

Re: fttc delayed again

My cab was originally March 2011...  It's been pushed back every three months and is currently Dec 2012 - although a new cab has sprung up next to the old one in the last 6 weeks.

Re: fttc delayed again

Dont't worry Jameseh mine isn't either so welcome to our little club.

Having said that my exchange never appears in any lists for 21cn but all of a sudden and with no warning we got it.  Fingers crossed the same happens with fttc

Re: fttc delayed again

Don't feel bad, my exchange (quite a large urban one) is surrounded by lots or very small rural exchanges and they all have dates yet we have nothing.
I view it like doing the lottery each week, I am always hopeful but won't hold my breath Smiley

There's 120 more exchanges in Yorkshire now...
...just a little bit further north of where you are  Roll eyes
And there are 20 villages even down for FTTP  Shocked

My cabinet arrived, including power, in July and still hasn't been activated. The problem here is with collapsed ducts.

My house is equidistant from 3 exchanges.  One has been upgraded, one is due to be and the third isn't listed in plans.

Cheers for the Christmas joy everyone.  Grin
After posting last night my wife reported that today she saw number of openreach vans working locally so collapsed ducts aside it hopefully will not be to long into the new year. 2013 not 14 that is.

Doesn't really matter; the world ends in 2 days anyway.  Crazy
