Fibre coming (was Re: I'm not so SAD !!)

Thanks for the replies, I'll need to go outside and ask the nice gentleman with the shovel if I'm getting FTTC or FTTP   Wink
Presumably FTTP is the [ SUPERFAST ] and FTTC is just [ FAST ] , based on the use, or not, of copper wire.
So, if it is FTTC ( can't see me 'jumping' from ADSL to FTTP ) and it increases my speed by more than 2Mb is should be good to go once the work is finished.  Roll eyes

Re: I'm not so SAD !!

It's likely to be FTTC based on where you live Smiley
Let us know if http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/ updates to show you FTTC/P at any point

Re: I'm not so SAD !!

Well, it says fibre to the cabinet and I haven't seen a cabinet, soooooooooo, I expected to find a cabinet, and, guess what ??  I did, with new painted doors and old frame, just like me  Tongue
In my excitement I didn't remember to check if there was a number on the cabinet, "my" cabinet number is 7. another sunny afternoon for cabinet stalking, isn't live wonderful  Grin

Re: I'm not so SAD !!

if you saw an old cabinet with painted doors then it wasn't a fibre cab.
fibre cabs are new and are sited close or next to the existing cabinet.

Oblong chalk marks with X in them next to it showing slightly bigger footprint, must be the space for the new cabinet  Grin
