The cabinet doesn't necessarily have anything in it. In addition they'll likely to be back in due course to dig up more of the road to install the fibre and power.

That said, if they've put the cabinet down and sited it, dunno why it would take 9 months to set it up. June would seem more plausible to me.

Do you have a more accurate location of where the cabinet is?

Here is the cab I was speaking of, it does not look like other FTTC cabs ive seen on here, no vents etc.

Perhaps its not for FTTC? or as its belfast we get hardened versions tongue

Its not an FTTC cab, and possibly isnt a BT cab at all

It certainly doesn't look like the FTTC cabs around here.
