Problems with four exchanges lead to delays
Unfortunately BT Wholesale has very belatedly found out that there are problems on four exchanges, that will result in the going live date been delayed.
The delays are down to various problems that only were discovered during the process of enabling the exchanges, i.e. replacement of existing cable ducting. Wylam apparently has problems with the fibre that is in the existing ducting.
With the large number of exchanges been enabled a few problems are to be expected, but that is little consolation to potential ADSL users in these areas. Hopefully BT Wholesale will not have many more problems like this, and if it does happen that more notice will be given.
