BT Wholesale Adds UK Street Cabinet Data to its Broadband Checker

Monday, Jan 14th, 2013 (11:41 am) - Score 28,560

One of our readers notes that BTWholesale has quietly updated its Broadband Availability Checker service to display some additional information, such as which BT street cabinet you’re connected to and whether or not superfast broadband (FTTC) is enabled or due to be installed.

The development follows last week’s controversial ruling by the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which upheld multiple complaints against ISP BT Retail’s related checker service because it often appeared to return unreliable “provisional” availability dates for their BTInfinity (FTTC) service and was thus deemed “likely to mislead“.

At the time the ASA told BT to adjust the wording so as to “ensure that [it] only included dates if they corresponded to scheduled plans for Openreach to engineer the BT Infinity service to the corresponding area“. A sample of how the latest output looks is shown below.
