      I have been checking the bbcheck.co.cc site daily, and today we have the following:-

      Phone number checked: xxxxx
      Postcode checked: xxxxx

      Data found:

      Exchange: Aberkenfig

      Recorded Line Length (from exchange): 1561m
      Estimated Attenuation (on ADSL): 22dB

      You are connected to Cabinet 8 which is currently live and accepting orders for FTTC

      Your speed estimate for fibre is:
      Downstream: 40Mbps
      Upstream: 8Mbps

      Tempted to go sign up to the trial with Sky again now... wonder if it would flag up something straight away because the cabinet is now enabled, or will their systems be clever enough?

      They'll want as much business as possible so I would assume so, but would it hurt if I threw some details in there again?

      Worth a shot, I would have thought that Sky want as many people on it as possible to test it so to speak.

      Done. Hopefully they'll ring me soon. Be nice to get in on this trial, but it's only 2 weeks before it's available generally.

      Take care then. At least you are available to take the call when it comes.
