FTTC question


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone (roughly) know how long it is before all the spots a cabinet for FTTC are taken up?

I know seems a daft question, but we may moving around the time BT activate FTTC in out area.

I haven't seen any reports here of anyone not being able to sign up because of the FTTC cabinet being at capacity, or even needing an upgrade from the initial installation capacity.

Local cab near me hit roughly 80% of first 100pairs to dslam used, new cable already pulled in (ready for extra cards at pcp). BT can always add extra cabs (including roof mounted dslams to existing cabinets). Not yet seen any cabinet full yet though (i.e. 288subs) to see what the firm does.

Presumably 100 pairs is sufficient for 50 subscribers?

That's what I figured.

It was just a matter of what counted as a "pair" in a tie cable was counted normally, or if you had a strange case where 4 conductors (for out & back) made up "1 pair". I've seen stranger conventions....

A 100 pair cable is a 100 pair cable no matter where in the network it is used.
I believe the tie cables are 0.5mm PEUT as used extensively throughout the network, and either 100 or 200 pairs(or multiples of) depending on the cabinet size and forecast demand.
