It appears that some FTTC services have now been activated for lines connected to PCP cabinet 6, but not for the Ewhurst premises in Barhatch Lane we know about. Please let us know if you are able to order “fibre” broadband from cabinet 6 at a Ewhurst address. This is the last cabinet serving Ewhurst premises to be enabled. For information on checking availability and ordering the upgrade please see our FTTC Guide here. Please click here for Walter’s full report.
The new FTTC cabinet was finally installed at Parkhouse Green beside PCP 6 on 10th October. Please see the comments under this post here for further information. Cabinet 6 serves parts of Ewhurst, but is located in Cranleigh on Bookhurst Road (at the bottom of Bookhurst Hill, near the triangle). According to Harlequin (BT’s agent) the works required BT to obtain a way-leave from the land owner, causing much of the delay.
Service area summary: Bookhurst Road up to Canfold cottages, Barhatch Lane up to and beyond Horseblock Hollow and part of The Warren, and some others.
