      LOL Foxhall is not due to go live till June, Belstead has had people connected to fibre testing for 12 months now. I have had to walk past that cabinet daily lol. I can not believe some of the places and positions of some of the cabinets.

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      hmmm i just realised something regarding the current 1/3/12 deadline.
      BTO post a new tweet of a bunch of new exchanges now accepting orders about once a week and the amount varies, i have seen as much as 14+ in a week previously but today was only 7, the ones posted have been removed from the coming soon list and put on the accepting orders now list but i just realised that with a week and a half left of feb there is still 251 exchanges on the coming soon list that are dated Mar-12

      so unless BTO are seriously upping the speed i think its fair to say a very big chunk of the 1/3/12 dated exchanges are going to miss their deadline

      Bt's fibre map says belstead is due to be FTTC enabled 31/3 and Sam Knows 1/3 I think the truth is they just flick the switch when they feel like it.

      I never think to check their twitter... whats their twitter account?
