FTTC Install?? - Cabinet looks a bit Small


[link to this post]
 
Our exchange (Maidenhead) has been FTTC enabled for ages - but we can't get the service in our rural location. I noticed last week a load of digging going on around our existing old cabinet and now there's a little green fella sitting in front of it. Looks a lot smaller than the FTTC cabinets Iíve seen elsewhere, so could this just be a replacement to the old one (it's still there) or am I right to start getting excited?

Here's the old one:

The new one is sitting on the grass this side of the pavement.

Replacement maybe.

Does new cabinet have ventilation grills? If there are non- then replacement cabinet is most likely.

I'll try to remember to have a look on Saturday morning when I drive that way!

You need to get the local Landlord (of the Royal Oak) onto the case - he must have a few contacts.

There are a couple of small FFTC cab pics on this page. The two "128"s.

Now there's a surprise - it looks like the virgin media one on the right:

Can't believe they'd be interested in cabling up this area - houses all to spaced out and they'd have to dig up a lot of road!

Him, plus the residents of White Waltham that purchased the land from the farm at the top of Paley Street - they could pay for a cabinet out of their loose change!

So, were you happy when the Saturday morning noise moved from there down to opposite the Royal Oak?
