BT Inifinity and Cabinet 15 Lofthouse gate


[link to this post]
 
Hello All.
I really hope someone is able to advise me on the below as i just don't get it..

I live on a housing development which was built 5 years ago and im connected to mylof (lofthouse gate exchange). Recently they have enabled BT infinity on my exchange and on 99% of the cabinets supplying mylof.

From my home i can see cab 15 which is 100 mtrs away from home (and the one i connect too), and also i can see cab 16 which is a bit further up the main road say 250 mtrs away from home.. So to my question is cab 16 can supply infinity at 32.1mbps and my cab doesn't at all.. AND to add insult to injury they would have to lay the fibre past my cabinet as well.

i hope someone has a answer to my frustrating question.

regards
iain smith

Sorry wasn't exactly clear. My question is why would BT not have installed infinity into cab 15 when they was doing the cable laying as i say they have had to pass the cabinet to get to cab 16 further up the road.? it makes no sense.?

there must be a real reason for it eg: cab not capable etc.?

I thought they had to upgrade the cabs to make them capable - bigger cabs with fans and vents.

100% sure cab 16 is enabled as my brother in law connects to it and he is able to get the 32.1mbps.
The cab15 is a new cab when the development was built.. also looking at the other cabs on the main road these still seem old.?

Oh... one interesting fact is that the local council haven't adopted the roads or paths yet. so maybe BT dont have the authority to do anything yet.?

where bt stoped from replacing the old cabinet??


the new FTTC cabinets are larger, need more electricity and has lot more fans.

If you could provide a picture of your cabinet someone should be able to tell you if its a new on that should support FTTC.

Dimensions would be usefull as well

generally, bt dont replace the cabinets, they supplement them.
the list I found for mylof lists:
MYLOFp1, MYLOFp2, MYLOFp3, MYLOFp4, MYLOFp5, MYLOFp6, MYLOFp7, MYLOFp8, MYLOFp9, MYLOFp10, MYLOFp11, MYLOFp13, MYLOFp14, MYLOFp16, MYLOFp17, MYLOFp18, MYLOFp19, MYLOFp20, MYLOFp21, MYLOFp22, MYLOFp23, MYLOFp24, MYLOFp26.
missing, 12, 15, and 25
but even when on the list dosnt mean they happen...
