Very Interesting Document Re: FTTC Cabs


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

For those anticipating the upgrade of their exchange, you might want to take a look at this link.

There is one zip file here that contains an excel document of all of the postcode locations of every street cabinet in the UK, it also says which cabinets are going to be FTTC enabled, you can cross reference against your own postcode.

It might be removed soon as it doesn't look like a public document.

Be warned its a big document 50MB in size.

Cheers

I presume you managed to get a copy? wink

The page no longer shows a zip file of 50MB in size.

I just downloaded, (since your post), what appears to be the file - a zipped csv. 4.4MB, 47MB unzipped. PCP-PostCode report 13042011.

Clicked on it and it looks OK except OpenOffice CALC gave up at 65536 rows tongue, which is still in the middle of Belfast City. Not a lot of use for checking whether it is right for my postcode in Stockport.

I don't fancy trying it with Wordpad or Notepad!

Its 803315 rows in total, you are going to need Excel 2007 or later or something that can display that many rows.

Cheers,

Am I being stupid? Probably. What does 'Status: RFS' means? Ready For Service? Ruddy Fibre Stinks? It relates to the cabinet in my road.

In reply to a post by mkel78:

That's not quite correct. It appears to only be showing current enabled or sheduled areas only from what I can see.

I'm not in a position to know how many cabs there are in the UK but a document containing 808000 rows kind of made me think it was. Sorry for the misinformation.

Never the less its a useful document.

The biggest issue I've had is finding anywhere in a FTTC enabled town that can have FTTC so this is interesting smile

This is obvous enough - RFS (Ready for service?) at these cabs

RFS 1 ALTON THATN
RFS 2 ALTON THATN
RFS 3 ALTON THATN
RFS 4 ALTON THATN
RFS 6 ALTON THATN
RFS 7 ALTON THATN
RFS 8 ALTON THATN
RFS 9 ALTON THATN
RFS 11 ALTON THATN
RFS 12 ALTON THATN
RFS 13 ALTON THATN
RFS 14 ALTON THATN
RFS 18 ALTON THATN
RFS 19 ALTON THATN
RFS 20 ALTON THATN
RFS 21 ALTON THATN
RFS 23 ALTON THATN
RFS 24 ALTON THATN
RFS 27 ALTON THATN
RFS 28 ALTON THATN
RFS 29 ALTON THATN
RFS 30 ALTON THATN

So I presume that some percentage of the people served by these cabs, who are near enough to them, might be able to get a FTTC service.

How do I interpret this (this is the nearby location I've been waiting for since the exchange was, er, "enabled" in 09/2010 as I need somewhere with broadband to work out of)

ALTON GU34 2PP
THATN p26
% LInes 90.47
Uplift 2.38

No phase, no deployed date, no availability

Does it mean 90% of the lines at that postcode can have a FTTC service? Availability checker says no for that postcode and also for the specific address. When it's working it does, anyway smile

It may well be fed directly from the exchange (it's only 525m away) so no FTTC possible, but it's impossible to know as all the wiring is underground.

Or is it possible to know... basically, does this document and the above shed any light on when FTTC is coming, as I look at it, it doesn't look promising frown

I have been trying to interpret the document as well.

Are you looking at the document with 808000 + records? (Postcode to Cabinet mapping April 2011 Update)

Freeze the panes for the headers it starts to make more sense.

There is a column called phase.

Mine is 7B not being able to match it to any date but it is the highest number so it will be a long way off!!
