So this is obviously related to my cabinet. There were some problems with blocked ducts before I left and BT had dug up an extensive amount of pavement in three locations on the route down the hill to the cabinet. Looking inside there were sections where the cables were just lying in earth without any ducting, and the ends of the existing ducting looked a bit smashed up.
However, on my return all the holes are filled and neatly tarmaced over, and there is no further work showing on Elgin. I presume they wouldn't have done this if the problem hadn't been fixed, and the fibre could be run.
So why a 3 month RFS delay? Is this just a standard slippage on the checker if a particular cabinet fails to be enabled by a set date prior to the previous date? Could the cabinet still in fact be enabled very shortly? (it already has Power).
Or could this be down to staff availability - if my cabinet 'missed its slot' then do the engineers go off to another area meaning my cab will be left uncommissioned?
