I hope all those on cab 14 appreciate the backache I put into the contract of condensing the 3M verts on that cab to Quante to enable the FTTC verts. smile

And a mere two and half months later (!) the cabinet has finally gone live.

Ordered with Zen and an installation date of 14th December.

And Live ...

So after a long wait I'm live finally this morning. Speed of 75mb/18mb.

Kelly Communications guy, friendly enough. Messed up the extensions, but put it right.

Good to hear you made it!

Can you tell me what happens on the day, what he did inside house etc??

My master phone socket is behind TV unit in lounge, do they put a new one it? How did he mess up extensions?

All he did was replace the faceplate with a new one that has ADSL at the top and a normal telephone socket at the bottom. Took 10 minutes. Then a wander off to the cabinet and 10 minutes later the DSL light came on and I plugged in my Asus router.

My house was wired when built for lots of internal extensions. So from the master socket there is the extension cable that goes up through the walls to one of the bedrooms that has a patch panel to then distribute to all the other extensions. Not really necessary these days of course.

Anyway, he didn't crimp the cables correctly so the extensions were all dead. Another 15 minutes looking at what he had done and we fixed it. I say 'we' as I was telling him why it probably wasn't working ...

Crimp? are you sure?


Are you sure the faceplate has ADSL? It should say "Openreach A BT group business" ADSL ones will work but the filter design is not necessarily effective at the higher frequencies.
