According to the BT website, Fibre to the Cabinet, FTTC, which is the technology promised for our area, will deliver download speeds of up to 80Mbps and upload speeds up to 20Mbps.‹
Use the BT "when and where" website to check when Fibre Broadband will be enabled for the first properties in our area. There are to be three Fibre Cabinets, two in Rhu. and one outside Stuckenduff in Shandon. When you type your Post Code into the website you will be told which of the Cabinets you will be connected to. You can also sign up for a Newsletter which will keep you updated.
If you have checked the when and where site in the past, you will note that the estimated time for activation in our area seems to have slipped.
At the beginning of our campaign, in March 2014, to make BT aware of the problems with Broadband Speeds in our area, we sent BT Wholesale a survey of speeds recorded in our area.
