The Openreach superfast broadband roll-out provides a mixture of elation or disappointment depending on exactly where you live, which is reminiscent of ten years ago when we used to see waves of complaints as exchange batches were enabled for the original ADSL services.
The last seven weeks has seen parts of fifteen exchanges areas gain service. Knowing you are connected that telephone exchange is not enough, you need to check whether you street cabinet has actually been enabled, the best place to do this is via your telephone number on the BT Wholesale checker, or via the full address checker for those with a full LLU telephone line. The Openreach Where and When website provides only exchange level information, though if there are delays to a cabinet these do sometimes appear when checking via a postcode.

This is not the total activity of Openreach in the last few weeks, simply the new exchange areas where FTTC services have appeared. More street cabinets on exchanges already offering superfast services will have come online, in total since Openreach started its fibre service roll-out around 31,000 street cabinets have had their fibre twin added nearby.
