One FTTC Cabinet / Two 'normal' Cabinets?


[link to this post]
 
Just wondering if you can have multiple 'normal' cabinets connected to a new FTTC one?

There are two cabinets only 60 meters or so apart and BT have placed a new FTTC cabinet a couple of meters away from one and appear to have run a cable from it to the other cabinet.

I say 'appear' in that they were digging and running cable, I meant to ask them and they had gone by the time I got around to doing it.

Cabinet 22 that has the nice, new (doesn't look that durable actually) cabinet: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=tn6+1az&hl=en&ll=51.05...

Cabinet 9: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=tn6+1az&hl=en&ll=51.05...

No, its one FTTC cabinet to one PCP (copper cabinet).

no reason why not, two tie cables could be run to two PCPs from one FTTC cab.

There's a similar example to you describe near me, but I haven't checked up if the FTTC service is available on both yet on the spreadsheet.

I don't see an FTTC cabinet in those links. Which of course makes sense as they wouldn't have been taken then. The second one doesn't look like either cabinet is a PCP though? As has been said already.

The first picture doesn't have the cabinet in there as it was only put up last week ...

According to someone on here, the phone lines at postcode tn6 1az (where I live) are connected to cabinet 22 (the first one) and cabinet 9 (the second one).

They both look like cast iron PCP shells.
