List of Areas Previously Firmware Updated

Hi Everyone,
As most of you are already aware that we’re currently rolling out an update (8.2.7.7) on our O2 Wireless Box II (585v7). We’re updating our customer’s routers area by area and every week, the next few areas that will receive the update will be listed on our service status page which can be found here: http://broadband.o2.co.uk/broadbandstatus/view/
Many forum members have commented that they’re not sure if we’ve updated their area or not. So this thread will keep you updated with a list of all the areas which have been updated to date. We’ll make sure that this list is updated every week as the upgrade completes.
Remember, to receive the update you don’t need to do anything, just leave your router switched on. If you haven’t received the update in the next few weeks or you’ve missed it, don’t worry, we’ll keep trying until we’ve updated them all.
The areas updated so far:-
(W/C - 23/08) - Milton Keynes, Gloucester, Swindon, Slough.
(W/C - 31/08) - Brighton, Bristol, Harlow, Cambridge, Crawley, Croydon.
(W/C - 13/09) - Reading, Hemel, Peterborough, Swindon, Tunbridge Wells, Southampton.
(W/C - 20/09) - Plymouth, Christchurch, Maidstone, Cardiff, Exeter, Chelmsford, Warrington, Liverpool.
W/C - 27/09) - Coventry, Streetley, Birmingham South, Sheffield, Leicester, Stoke.
W/C - 04/10 - Clerknwell, Holborn.
(W/C - 11/10) - Chiswick.
(W/C - 18/10) - Pimlico and Barking.
(W/C - 25/10) - Manchester
(W/C - 01/11) - Preston and Newcastle.
(W/C - 08/11) - Oxford, Derby, Birmingham, Northampton, South Birmingham, Tipton, Dudley.
Thanks
Abs

Re: List of Areas Previously Firmware Updated

Please can you confirm the exact area's that are being updated when you list only cities, and large towns, e.g. if it is truly only the area's listed, then you have updated 4, 5, 6, 8 = 23 places in 5 weeks.... somebody who lives in a small town such as myself would be waiting until next year at this rate, although you have already rolled out to the two neighbouring cities which are both within ~32 miles of where I live!

Re: List of Areas Previously Firmware Updated

Perksie - Your Welcome!
PowerLee - I understand everyone is curious to know when their area would be listed, however it's not possible to accommodate the list for future sites due to regular modifications and changes. I'd suggest to keep an eye on the service status page!
Jimbobaggies - Each aggregation site contains many exchanges and we process the firmware upgrade to all exchanges included. If your exchange falls under the aggregation site listed then it would be covered.

Re: List of Areas Previously Firmware Updated

OK - with regard to the aggregated areas, where can we find a list of which exchanges are in each aggregated area.
For instance, my local exchange is Loughton. This is associated with the Ilford area by BT but could possibly come under Harlow with O2.
How do we find out?
Thanks.

How do we know if our exchange falls under the aggregation site?
My exchange is wwbrix, which is in Torbay, however, both Exeter and Plymouth were on the list, and Torbay is bang in the middle between these two cities (~35 miles from either).
Anyway, I have given reason why I want the upgrade, and also reason why I am not prepared to phone CS in the other thread, so are you willing to accommodative pushing the firmware to my router or not?
tbph, I am getting a little tired of questions answered by questions, or with cryptic answers.... it is about time that the firmware was available to general public now....=

Re: List of Areas Previously Firmware Updated

Jimbob my local exchange is WWPAIG and I also wondered if the Exeter/ Plymouth updates would include ours.
I have yet received no update

Apparently WWBRIX was part of the Exeter aggregation, so I would guess WWPAIG is as well :smileywink:
