      if you leave the filters argument as the default = then it needs to be in caps and with no space, otherwise change it to contains ignoring case

      Yes, sorted that, SWAAZ P8 is the cabinet. Now, how do I know if this cabinet has been/shortly going to be upgraded?

      EDIT: More fiddling has revealed that i have a figure of 1 for Deployed..........

      unfortunately it only confirms that your line is supplied from bt cab number 8 and that cab P8 is included in the roll out deployment under phase 6b.
      To tell if it has been actually done yet or not you do still have to visually confirm if the cab in question has had the new fiber cab placed next to it and if its powered up and working, the PCP file just makes this easier asuming the orig bt cab still has its number printed on it as alot do wear off.

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      I understand. So if I go down to where I *think* these cabinets are, and confirm that: -

      1. There is a cabinet with a P8 label on it
      2. A brand new cabinet not far away from it

      Then I'm golden...

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      that is correct yes,
      then you just need to wait till either the sky official launch in April when you will be able to place an order or get a lucky call from Sky inviting you to join the fiber service before the official launch.
      either way things are looking good for you so far, as for me, i know the cab im connected to and its only 80-90 meters away from me (as the crow flies) but theres no sign of any fiber boxes going up around here yet and my exchange's RFS date isnt till June

      Good luck, fibre brother/sister!

      The RFS date on my exchange changed 3 times... That makes me slightly wary, but we'll wait and see. Most places claim that my Exchange is FTTC enabled now so I guess that end of March date must be accurate or wrong (but wrong in the good way for me...)
