Connecting Devon and Somerset releases new map and postcodes
Monday 09 December 2013 18:23:11 by Andrew Ferguson

In addition to the 31 areas announced today for the Connecting Devon and Somerset project, they have also issued a new more detailed map that details the areas where survey work has been completed and are due to get a service by Spring 2014.

The project has also released a set of postcode data, which I have now rolled into an online checker so that people do not need to use excel or scroll through a csv file. The postcode list also details the areas where a service via the project is available, and should allow people to track the progress of the project assuming further updates appear as the project progresses.

Wonder if someone could help, as this is quite exciting..

I am on the Craddock exchange currently however when I enter my postcode and number it says I am on the greenham7 exchange (the xls also says i'm greenham. Could it be wrong or am i to be moved?

Postcode is TA21 9QY

What does https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html say for your telephone number?

Postcodes can sometimes overlap.

BT BROADBAND AVAILABILITY CHECKER
Telephone Number 01884xxxxxxx on Exchange CRADDOCK is served by Cabinet 4.

...The postcode list and the checker:

TA21 9QY GREENHAM 7 By Spring 2014.

It is possible for the postcode to be served by two exchanges. Time to check other phone numbers for properties in the same postcode and see if there is a mixture.

Location wise maps suggest it is a possibility

Some Greenham 7, some Craddock 4.

Interesting.

Every checker I have ran for neighbours (only 30m or so away (small village)) says craddock, its been craddock as far as I can remember, so could it be because of fiber we're being migrated from the craddock exchange to the greenham one?... i hope so.

I suppose the questions one should ask you experts is;

Is there an official way I can find out whether I am going to be migrated to a different exchange or not

Thanks in advance.

Do you know where the 2 cabinets are?
Posted by tommer over 3 years ago
SOmerset - nope, no idea, new to fibre and we're in the sticks so i guess it could be anywhere.

Craddock4 according to:

oh how confusing :D
Posted by andrew (Favicon staff member) over 3 years ago
Even if the fibre is running from a different exchange the PSTN side will remain at the exchange you are on now.

The key really is methodical checking of telephone numbers, and finding physical location of cab 4 and 7.

eg. Address BARNS CLOSE, NICHOLASHAYNE, WELLINGTON, TA21 9QY on Exchange CRADDOCK is served by Cabinet 4

Address BURGESSES, NICHOLASHAYNE, WELLINGTON, TA21 9QY on Exchange GREENHAM is served by Cabinet 7

Greenham 7 looks to be on corner of A38 and Gipsy Lane, 4.5km from TA21 9QY

Have suggested on twitter council adds a note on these split postcodes, but does not appear to have gone down well as a suggestion.

Was told to just read the caveats

Craddock cabinet 4 is at Town Hill Culmstock which is the turning between Silver Street and Fore Street, it's very close to where it says "the old forge/bakery" on google maps, I know this as a friend is connected to this cabinet.

3km from TA21 9QY. Not looking good.
