How can you tell if you can get fttp?

I checked my number and this is what I get.

Thanks in advance.

Hi tsdphil,
With regards to the dsl checkers response it appears not. I don't know where you live in the village but you should get the below.

Hi Admin

Grrrr

We're in Maes y Goron so looks like we've got to wait a little longer then.

Good job I held off ordering the satellite broadband.

I do know of a few people who have managed to order where you live. I also know that persons ordering recently have been placed on a two/three call back. I suspect they are fully committed with orders so far and will need to place further orders as when time permits.

Hi Phil,

Who are you trying to order it with? BT processed my order last week and Openreach came to fit the external box on Friday.

Openreach have installed the external part in 3-4 houses in Maes Y Goron so far. The connection point is outside number 22.

Hope you can place your order soon.

Update - I called BT and told the external work had been done and requested that they move the internal installation forward. They said the 14th was the soonest.

Whats 12 days when you have been waiting 3 years ey?

Spoke to Openreach Engineers today. They advise top end of village Cae Eithin is not going to be connected under the current plan as access is underground and does not have capacity to take the fibre ducts.

DDA firstly welcome to the forum. I would make sure you speak to the FTTP team the number is in an earlier post. Cae Eithin has a fttp enabled post at the green so may be worth checking.

Hello, thanks for the welcome. Yes I spoke to them about that pole, however they can only go above ground and there are no poles in the close. The chap was very knowledgeable about the infrastructure and so I think it's legit. So that is a dreadful situation for those wanting fibre here. I think it does show in scope, so perhaps eventually they will install above ground infrastructure.
