Superfast Fibre Broadband - Update

Accepting Orders (AO)

Superfast is in the area. You can check it for yourself on the link:  http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/default.aspx

BT Openreach Exchanges already accepting orders
SLMIM - METHERINGHAM - FTTC/P - Now North Kesteven District.

FTTC - Fibre To The Cabinet; FTTP - Fibre To The Premises

To check whether your property can get it, you will need to contact your preferred supplier for your home or business. I therefore contacted BT as my current provider to see if I could upgrade my package to BT Infinity.

The BT customer advisor confirmed that Metheringham Exchange was now accepting orders for Superfast Broadband. He also checked to confirm that our cabinet had been upgraded to fibre - and it has. However, he was unable to complete my upgrade to BT Infinity as his 'system' was not giving him the option, although all the signs were that the upgrade work had been completed.

The customer advisor thought there might be some final commissioning work to undertake, but was confident BT Infinity would be available very shortly. He has now registered my email address on his 'system' (a different process than the basic 'registering an interest' I was assured) and this will trigger a 'push' notification as soon as the service upgrade is available.

If you are interested in Superfast broadband, you may want to try to upgrade yourself to see what response you get. Otherwise, keep an eye on the blog for more information as it arrives... and if you have any extra information, please post a comment below.
