Fibre Cabinet


[link to this post]
 
The placing off my existing BT cab is about 10 metres from my house though being estimated at 35mb...

There is now a Fibre cabinet about 300 metres from my house and there is no normal cabinet near.

My neighbour has seen a OR engineer on our estate at the old cab and then walking off the estate to the Fibre cab.....

Could this be my new cab? Does it have to be next to existing cab?

Thanks

The 35Mbps estimate sounds about right for the 300Metres. I thought the maximum distance between the fibre and PCP was about 50metres, so are you sure the 10m one is a BT cabinet? What sort of number is there on it?

It's irrelevant anyway. It's just a question of when that FTTC one goes live. What date does the estimator give you?

300 metres is too far. Its either an FTTC cabinet connected to another cabinet you are not aware of, or more likely nothing to do with FTTC

The new cab is 100% FTTC. My cab 10 metres away is definitelty BT.

I was done as March, then June, now December frown

Actually all postcodes around my area are December inclusing any right next to the new Fibre cab,

does your old cabinet have a number stencilled on it,
something like:
pcp xx, or scp yy
(I dont need the number, but the prefix may explain things)

Put the images on both cabinets on Photobucket (or similar) and post links here.

Up to 50m is the typical maximum distance between copper and fibre cabinets. Slightly longer maybe be permitted, but 250m is too far
