BT installed FTTC in my area ?


[link to this post]
 
Is that BT FTTC installed ?

If yes to both, it mean my exchange Cuckoo Oak could be the next roll out plan by BT later this year ?

It is late but think they are not openreach based, look too thin for FTTC cabs

The pole next to it is the obvious clue.

It'll be a mobile relay from another mast or one that has a fibre feed in to it. As you say, too thin to be FTTC cabs.

Their is still the final announcement to come from Openreach, so your exchange may be their but more likely to be upgraded via the BDUK project for your area.

I think my council had withdrawal BDUK (Telford & Wrekin Council) from government. I don't know why is this ? My exchange will never get FTTC for the next 5 years and I just know it.

The pole next to it. At the top is it vaguely like this? Both are phone masts

Notice in the photo next to the mast is green boxes looking just like the ones you've taken pics of.

If so it's a mobile phone mast (as has been suggested) and that green box is for whichever mobile network company is operating the telephone mast.

Their is a news item from Telford and Wrekin council back in January

http://www.telford.gov.uk/press/article/1123/council...

Has been no more news from Telford or BDUK, its possible that BDUK will press ahead and deliver a soultion for Telford and Wrekin but have to wait and see what happens.

Why it taking so long hear nothing since January. I bet Telford Council don't want to spend on broadband ? They did pulled out of BDUK.
