Re: Anyone In Muswell Hill Or Whitchurch On FTTC Trial - What's It Like ?

We've only a handful of our customers on the trial at the moment and I don't think any of them frequent the forums. Last I heard we had another batch of orders scheduled over the next week or two.
There have been a few hiccups but you'd kind of expect that due to the nature of the trial. Speeds have been good AFAIK and far superior to that offered by ADSL2+

Is there an intention to have a forum for this as per the ADSL2+. I'm sure more people would like to know what FTTC is going to be like as the trial expands and we move into the early phase of real deployments ?

Should there be a need for one, it's something we'd look at.
However, for a userbase of 4, it's not really going to be of much help as things currently stand Smiley

How widely available is this to PlusNet customers in the area?  I've had conflicting stories from BT Openreach about this so far - also  my Plusnet line has been LLUed to Tiscali but either has been/will be shortly/ transferred to BT Wholesale.  Presumably once I'm on BT Wholesale I'm eligible for this trial service, as I understand from BT that I'm in the area that it covers, and if so I would be keen to add to your user base.

Hi Martin,
There not 100% coverage quite yet, but I've passed your details onto Dave who'll check to see whether or not you're eligible.
You're already on the BT Wholesale product.

Martin,
You're on "cabinet 22" which is inside a conservation area.  As such, BT haven't been able to do the necessary upgrade work.  They are however looking at relocating the cabinet, but are currently waiting on planning permission.
