Openreach announce 63 exchanges for fibre upgrades

Openreach have today announced another 63 exchanges which will be enabled during the next phase of its super fast broadband network upgrade. This will allow for fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) services delivering 'up to 40 meg' broadband to be provided by service providers to an increased number of users. Some may even be lucky enough to get fibre-to-the-home or premises (FTTH/FTTP) services.

These exchanges are expected to be enabled by late summer 2010.

Nice to see the role-out finally start kicking off. Hopefully more will role on from these around the nation, as opposed to predominantly south.

Surely you mean summer 2010, Sebastien?

Is there a full list somewhere?

  • nmg196
  • over 10 years ago

@nmg196 yeah my thoughts exactly, is there a full list of enabled and to be enabled exchanges? Information on the openreach website is slim :/

  • irchs
  • over 10 years ago

@irchs + @nmg196 try looking at www.samknows.com as they have a full list of all the exchanges in the UK and what is enabled.

  • TaRkADaHl
  • over 10 years ago

No mention of Brackley (not really a surprise) but our office is in a village just outside Bicester. I haven't seen any green cabinets though but it's possible we're fed from one of those on the outskirts. That alone would probably double our speed.

  • AndrueC
  • over 10 years ago

Looking forward to comments from Cyberdoyle and Carpetburn on this!

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

what's to say? just proves it isn't rocket science, they could have done it years ago if they wanted to. All this talk of £30 billion is a fallacy, they already own the ducts, poles and wayleaves. replace expensive copper with fibre, put in futureproof kit and sit back and make a mint. Much better to do fibre to the home, but it will come.

  • cyberdoyle
  • over 10 years ago

Oh I was expecting that post from @cyberdoyle... He simply refuses to believe that people won't pay £1200 to get a FTTH connection when we can get FTTC which is nearly the same speed for free.

  • nmg196
  • over 10 years ago

BT never said £30bn for FTTC, they started out at £1.5bn. The larger figures were for FTTH.

  • KarlAustin
  • over 10 years ago

quote"Looking forward to comments from Cyberdoyle and Carpetburn on this!"

Actually im quite interested, my exchange is on that list, which ISPs if any are selling these fibre based services? Can you pre-order from any ISP? Also is there anywhere to get info about packages available, the monthly cost and what monthly limits etc and similar are available? Ill consider the service if it meets my personal requirements.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Of course you will. It is, after all, from BT.
*snickers*

Cyberdoyle - Oh? Okay, now prove that contention, including proof they were allowed to by Ofcom (since they seem to be using recent permissions) and that the exact gear they're using was available before. Thanks.

Oh, and by the way? This is *ahead* of schedule.

  • Dawn_Falcon

Reading South? Moved from there 2 years ago. Wokingham? Moved 1 year ago.

Oh well. They're bound to make their way to Reading CENTRAL eventually...

  • Quark999

hednesford, who lives there?, or mayby that is the reason for the trial to get better speds to places not normally covered. maybe I should move the 13mines to hednesford for this :)

  • iand
  • over 10 years ago

CB - monthly limits etc. are totally the responsibility of the particular ISP. Openreach just provide the pipe from the exchange and the box at the customer end.

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

iand - Hednesford has 8 LLU suppliers so something must be happening there.

I fail to see what your favourite chocolate bar has to do with this??? Actually scrap that i do its advertised by Mr T, (http://getsomenuts.tv/) so in his words and something you have obviously heard many times before.......... "Shut up FOOL"

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Strange that Mile End was chosen and yet Poplar with it's ongoing capacity problems was ignored, i would imagine that Poplar would be a goldmine. i can't yet see any logic behind the choices other than to try to appear not to favour anyone in particular.

  • njalondon
  • over 10 years ago

I think its just random njalondon or a case of them picking on more modern or large supply exchanges first. There was never any clear definition why BT roll out services to certain exchanges before others, same thing happened with MAX products.

  • CARPETBURN

Full list I found so far is

@CB

AAISP I know definately does.

Many other independent ISPs will as well, you just have to ask them as it's not mainstream yet.

By the looks of reviews AAISP is your best bet but I think the trial comes with an 18 month contract (like you're going to want to quit?).

  • otester
  • over 10 years ago

In addition, be aware that usage allowances is currently pretty ****.

I get 5TB on my ADSL2+ package.

  • otester
  • over 10 years ago

Toothill exchange was always delayed of upgrades due to a lack of space, llu providers decided to pull out & 21cn was also delayed. I'm well chuffed with this upgrade. I have noticed that blunsdon will also get the upgrade. A lot of people got taken off this exchange last year when they built the new haydon wick exchange and migrated across with decent speeds. I bet they wish they never got moved at all now. Bring it on Swindon. Also with the wifi network being put into place, this really is now becoming the digital city ;P

  • Mitchy_mitch
  • over 10 years ago

Ironically, there being no LLU providers probably got it on the list, Mitchy. When there's only BT gear, it's considerably cheaper to provide the environmental systems (since BT sticks with a few pieces of kit with fairly similar tolerances).

Carpet - Yea, that's about your interlectual (intended spelling) level. No, they pick exchanges based on cost and market research, sheesh.

  • Dawn_Falcon
  • over 10 years ago

DF - don't assume the fibre goes back to the same local exchange.

CB - rollout is defined by ISPs.

Thanks for that info otester, ill have a look around when it hits my exchange hopefully then details will be in writing from various ISPs :)

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Rollout is also determined by engineering capacity per "region". You can't suddenly decide to roll-out where you don't have the manpower to actually fulfill your commitment...

  • themanstan
  • over 10 years ago

Some interesting decisions here though I guess they have their reasons even if they aren't totally clear at first impression.

  • Dixinormous
  • over 10 years ago

still all in same areas as the previous 2 announcements with the exception of a few exchanges, the 2 listed east midlands ones are both in leicestershire. coalville is a small town, stoneygate is near the city but serves mainly short lines. Both have cable and BE. They didnt pick an exchange on the west side of leicester which is the area dominated with long lines.

  • chrysalis
  • over 10 years ago

@freediver http://www.samknows.com/broadband/btadsl-league.php

There is every exchange in the UK, all 5461 BB enabled ones, click on it and it explains if it has LLU, 21CN, Virgin and everything else. The list of what exchanges are enabled is the list of 63 above. Here is a list of the other planned exchanges:

The Samknows site doesn't show the FTTP/FTTH sites yet. Not even on Whitchurch or Muswell Hill. I have dropped an e-mail to ask if they intend doing so.

I wonder how much this increase in FTTC exchanges will affect the already well behind schedule and much maligned roll out of WBC .

  • Aqualung
  • over 10 years ago

jumpmum - so far it's 2 + 29 + 69 + 63 = 163

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

FTTC is behind schedule already..

Heaton Moor exchange 'live' date (for customer orders) 4th Jan. On 26th Dec the checkers stopped quoting a date.. now BT are refusing to give a date at all. And it's not the only exchange affected either.

  • TonyHoyle
  • over 10 years ago

^^^ Bang goes Dawn Falcons bubble world of and i quote "Oh, and by the way? This is *ahead* of schedule."
What a shocker!

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Carpetburn: Try to be fair to BT, the weather since 16th Dec has been horrendous for working on cabinets outside and new work will take a back seat to repairing faults caused by the snow/frost and travelling difficulties.

  • jumpmum
  • over 10 years ago

This is good news i wonder weather BT look at digital region's roll out plan .This would really put a spanner in the works if bt could roll out fttc before they do .i'm with sky bbi and i stand a much better chance with bt as wholesale links are already in place

  • 2doorsbob
  • over 10 years ago

Weather happens. They were still three months ahead of schedule, so a few weeks of snow isn't going to push them behind.

  • Dawn_Falcon
  • over 10 years ago

Digital Region are rolling out cabinets already around South Yorkshire and have been for weeks ( even in this weather ). Remember DR are doing a lot smaller area than BT, they are at present only doing the 54 exchanges in the South Yorkshire region.....

  • tikka69
  • over 10 years ago

Serious question - are any of these exchanges outside Virgin's cabled area? I must admit I've got a bit cynical and don't expect to see FTTC in my lifetime out here in the sticks, so if any of these exchanges are not just easy pickings I might get a bit more optimistic ;)

  • andygegg
  • over 10 years ago

Yes, it is covering all 54 exchanges in South Yorkshire, which will feed to around 1600 street cabinets. A large percentage of these areas are not covered by VM or LLU at present.

  • tikka69
  • over 10 years ago

DR IMHO is a bit weak in the technical implementation side of things as far as ISPs are concerned though, nowhere near as robust as currently wholesale implementations and hand-offs - unless things have changed dramatically of late.

  • KarlAustin
  • over 10 years ago

tikka69 - thanks for that. I am duly more optimisticated! We shall see if the consultation announced today brings any cheer.

  • andygegg
  • over 10 years ago

Karl, would love to know why you think this ? Drop me a PM if you like. :o)

  • tikka69
  • over 10 years ago

DF - how do you work out it's cheaper if there is no LLU, surely LLU might move in once FTTC is provided Also it may go back to a different exchnage.

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

Somerset - It's all down to the price of providing the appropriate environmental systems (BT deliberately gets its kit in quite close tolerance). And it may, but BT have to make choices and It'd be just one of many factors involved.

  • Dawn_Falcon
  • over 10 years ago

Posted by Somerset 1 day ago
at this moment in time

is that a confirmation they picking out short line areas first?

Also I would love for someone to do an analysis of all picked exchanges and see if there is any kind of pattern or if BT are picking them out of a hat.

  • chrysalis
  • over 10 years ago

It's a follow up from nonsense expressions like 'low hanging fruit'.

Most are in cable areas, most are exchanges with at least 6 LLU operators.

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

lol. It gets better. Not only have the FTTC checkers gone down but BT have said they can't even take orders on live exchanges until the 18th Jan even on live exchanges because their ordering systems aren't ready.

So much for ahead of schedule.. not that I believed that for a minute anyway.

  • TonyHoyle
  • over 10 years ago

The first tranche, of which my exchange is part, has not even been enabled yet and I still cannot find anything concrete about any FTTC offerings or enablement dates.

  • drteeth
  • over 10 years ago

So thats 2 people that confirm the lie of "Ahead of schedule" How long do we have to put up with that posters mis-information?

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

ok will see what happens then, my exchange
7 x llu
cable available
it fits the criteria but has long lines so will BT spend on it. Time will tell.

  • chrysalis
  • over 10 years ago

Shame we don't know what the criteria are Chrysalis. Providers have input however none of the LLU operators are showing much interest in them leaving BT Wholesale basically. Blame the LLU operators for that, they need to pull their finger out.

The criteria certainly isn't as simple as having loads of LLU and cable available.

  • Dixinormous
  • over 10 years ago

Hm... so basically Carpetburn is saying that the announcement of dates ahead of schedule is contradicted by a possible (not even confirmed) delay because of bad weather and someone reporting he dosn't know the state of the exchange.

Yea, wrong again.

  • Dawn_Falcon
  • over 10 years ago

^^^ Stop making things personal and bringing me into your frankly bile spewing tripe

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

I am perfectly allowed to disagree with you and agree with other posters (more than one i may add) who are correct. In the past 4 news stories you have done nothing but spout nonsense without backing up a single claim you have made.
You are a Liar and in breach of SEVERAL site rules. It has been reported and i will continue to report your dis-information on a daily basis until you are forced to stop.
Take a hint, if more than a single person says the opposite to what you have to spew it probably makes you wrong.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

'your frankly bile spewing tripe' - very professional!

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

Dixi if I was an LLU provider I wouldnt lay my own fibre either such a move based on BT's past behaviour would trigger openreach to react and then lose exclusivity.

  • chrysalis
  • over 10 years ago

Carpet -

Here's a hint: Check BT's original timetable. You're wrong, again.

And stop making personal attacks. (That you're constantly wrong is just a fact, not an attack)

Chrysalis - Which past behaviour are you refering to?

  • Dawn_Falcon
  • over 10 years ago

LMAO you really are stupid...... Heaton Moor hasnt been enabled... So much for ahead of schedule. As to your so called phone calls (like people would actually speak to you) thats another LIE as the the ordering systems for the services at many exchanges are not even fully live yet and wont be until mid to end of Jan. Mwahahaha simpleton!

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Its a shame your brain power doesnt match your ability to lie, if it did you may actually state something thats accurate for once.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Oh and i can prove the ordering system isnt fully live/functional yet for all the listed areas... I have it from BTs own mouth... You probably dont believe that but hey you expect people to believe your nonsense with no proof. Unlike you though i can back up that claim.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Dixi, in the past on exchanges BT didnt enable when a community prohect got started or a wireless isp moved in the area BT then enabled adsl in the exchange.

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

Yep i probably will be banned, even though its DF that has annoyed several users not only in this thread but many other recent news items. They continue to make unfounded claims, without evidence and even when asked politely refuse to provide evidence to their claims.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Also if you could be kind enough to look back through this news story comments you will see Dawn Falcon was the person that started with the sly and rude remarks towards myself. It all kicked off from the 13th post in this thread made by DF..... If Dawn Falcon cant take insults and sly remarks they shouldnt start them. Then again DFs nonsense seems acceptable hence why they are still here telling LIE after LIE. Oh and is the one that starts the personal insults.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

I assume you have reported me Somerset, perhaps in future you could report insults as soon as they start, that way people wont have to defend thereself against Dawn Falcons rude dribble.

  • CARPETBURN
  • over 10 years ago

Carpetburn if proof is what you require here is the original timetable.By April 2010 so yes it is ahead of schedule.
http://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/news/productbriefings/nga/nga01009.do

These dates being referred to are just Cabinet Ready for Service dates they are not product launch dates.

Product launch plans are being communicated at the next NGA forum on the 14th of this month see here.

Its not exchanges where cabinets are installed. But to not be petty, ill answer what i believe you mean... 2 of the London locations has work in progress still, 1 (FTTP) has been put back, another Scottish location cabinet work has not started, other locations now do not have ETA dates available through BTs checker.

Can anyone give me information on the exchange that covers G75 9GY we are still on the slowest speed available to broadband despite promises over the last four years that we will be upgraded to faster speeds this is harming not only business but private users.

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

BT is truly a joke.
I cannot believe they left out the Slough main exchange.

BT seems to be rolling out the service to areas that already have a decent broadband services, instead of rolling out the service first to customers with poor service in last mile areas or too far from the exchange(broadband-notspot.org.uk), such as the no broadband spot where I live.

Right next to the biggest trading estate in Europe & no broadband service.

As Slough is holding some of 2012 olympics events, shouldn't BT be upgrading the slough main exchange also?

  • windows7
  • over 10 years ago

Plenty of time to the olympics. What events are in Slough?

It's the ISPs that want particular areas, not BT. They probably want exchanges where they can compete with VM.

  • Somerset
  • over 10 years ago

One would think that 9 miles away from the centre of MANCHESTER,fibre optic cable would be prominent. No, the Walkden exchange, four miles away from my home is not on the list. Why? My broadband, via wi-fi modem, gives me just 2mgb. So slow, my garden snails could do better.
