Cabinet arrived !


[link to this post]
 
Wow, I came home from work and Openreach have fenced off a bit of pavement and a shiny new FTTC cabinet (one of the big Huawei 288 line ones) has appeared near my PCP.

Now just to wait until I can order - wonder how long that will be wink

Our cabinet appeared in late March and I was connected up on the 1st of June.

Our cabinet arrived June 2011 and is still awaiting power! Southern Electric had to apply for a wayleave to reach the intended power source.

Definitely an exceptional case; but very frustrating to see a FTTC cabinet for a whole year whilst continuing to struggle along on 1Mbps ADSL (~7km line)!
