Cabinets coming to Canterbury - It's starting!


[link to this post]
 
Just got back in form work and greeting me in my inbox was a warning of Streetworks around my nearest BT cabinet.

I did a quick check on some of the Streetworks listed nearest to me through ELGIN and highlighted the NGA BT works that I found between Blean and the City centre.

I was a little surprised to get the warning as the last Openreach list had Canterbury knocked back to June 2012. Still, I am in no hurry as I am lucky enough to have 25mb Wireless for the moment.

If you want to keep tabs on works around your nearest BT cabinet, goto the ELGIN site and setup a search (I drew an area round my nearest cab by using the map filter) and you can get a heads up when the cabinets are being installed (that and any other works that happen in the same area).

Took the dogs out for a walk earlier tonight and spotted one of these cabinets on Tyler Hill Road near to the Londis.

Interesting as they had changed the date back to end of 2012.

Shame they won't be doing the cabinet I connect to as I'm in a so called "conservation area" in the City centre.

Sounds about right if the first cabinets are just going in for the exchange.

BT retail now list Canterbury as December 2011.

I've sent an e-mail to KCC asking if the cabinet I connect to will be enabled.

Why are you emailing us, I mean KCC, to find out if your nearest cab is set to be enabled?

I may be able to find out if you send me a pm.

Which area of Canterbury are you in?

I'm in Blean (could you tell by my post laugh) and would have thought that the first cab's would be nearer to the centre (or at least anywhere other than my side of the city).

The only reasons I can think that we are getting cab's this early is that we are not far from the University of Kent (which may mean shorter runs to existing fibre points) and also that they need to come through Blean to get to Whitstable (if Canterbury is being used to serve the Whitstable area).
