A few quick questions if I may.
Having read a great many threads and individual posts and not finding what I was looking I thought I would ask the questions here. Forgive me if they are answered elsewhere and feel free to point me, by URL, to the correct location.
Are there any plans at all to “upgrade” the Scremby (EMSCREM) BT exchange? I ask as for many MUX 1 was down last week for over 12 hours and previously to that I have had 5 Openreach engineers visit me only to all point at the exchange as being the issue of the problems I faced.
What are the criteria for “upgrading” an exchange? I have checked the lists and randomly surveyed a number of exchanges and it is clearly not just on the number of properties and businesses connected to the exchange. Which is refreshing.
Any idea what BT do with all the ADSL2+ kit they remove from exchanges upgraded to fibre? Would seem a fairly cheap upgrade to exchanges that are limited to pure ADSL. Yes I understand the line length, signal degradation and so on issues. In my personal case it would more than double the speed I receive and that of my neighbours.
Many thanks for all the hard work that you all point in to helping those in need of some broadband speed.
