RFS dates released 18th March 2004
After missing a week, BT Wholesale has released a list of almost 90 Ready For Service (RFS) dates. In an ideal world BT Wholesale would need to be releasing almost 90 RFS dates every week to keep up with the rate exchanges are triggering at.
The majority of the RFS dates released this week are set for July 2004, but a few stretch right into 2005. There can be various reasons for why some exchanges have an RFS date so far away, often the delays arise because some exchanges have no existing fibre cable available and therefore new cable must be laid.
In view of the delays that some exchanges are experiencing in terms of how long between triggering and release of the RFS date, Donna Young made the following statement on the BT Wholesale broadband campaigners forum...
