      I think that would be the ideal package if you lived on Elm Street.

      I don't think Elm Street is connected to an FTTC enabled exchange actually...

      You could be right.

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      Have been following SBUF with interest, given the woeful ADSL speeds here despite living in Greater Manchester. Excited to see a Fibre cab go into the front of my estate a few weeks back. Gutted to notice last week that there is another green cabinet on the estate itself, and much nearer my house. Having just spent a bit of time on the BT Infinity checker it looks like one side of the road can get Infinity and one side can't - guess which side I am on :-(

      Given the house literally opposite can get it and that there is a BT access hole outside my house in the street does anyone know if you can pay to have a new line put in specifically to get FTTC? I would assume the ducting is close enough for it to be feasible (new build estate - phone line comes out of the ground at the front of the house).

      Thanks!

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      Was hoping to get sky fibre but been informed bt are not updating local cabinet. Will have to live with poor adsl speeds currently with sky. I know the issues are down to the poor bt network and not sky's fault. Oh well exchange is being upgraded but not my street cabinet Does any one know how I can confirm if the information I have been given is correct or not ? Here's hoping sky release a broadband product that does not rely on anyone else's network

      Where did you get that info in the first place? If Sky or BT told you that, they're pretty much on the ball.
      There are some PCP spreadsheets kicking around, with details of what cabs are being updated etc etc. Somebody might be able to help you with that.

      Unless Sky come and run copper or fibre from the Street Cabinet to every Sky customers property, it'll never happen.

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      As far as the leaked PCP document from end of last year is concerned, it lists Belstead exchange as part of phase 8a but for some reason does not seem to list your post code, there is an IP28RG listed covered by PCP #10 but no IP28GR so unless you have made a typo and got the last 2 letters the wrong way round then it would seem that for whatever reason your post code was not planned for rollout at the time this document was leaked.
      This info could have changed since leaked and is not 100% guaranteed as acurate so dont give up all hope but current available info points to you not being part of the current rollout plans
