Brixham


[link to this post]
 
A few months ago, Brixham was put on the list for 2013 FTTC rollout. This morning, walking back from town, I spotted a new FTTC cab (the smaller type) had been installed near PCP 1. Looking at the checkers, nothing is mentioned for addresses close to that cabinet. The Superfast site still has us listed as a Future Exchange. Pretty pleased even if, as I suspect, we're on an exchange line.

New cabinet was being installed in Summer Lane when I drove past last week on the way to Torquay. Now all I need is one installed on the corner of Milton Street and Southdown Hill smile

Yep, they're still busy with it (drove past on the weekend).

So far cab 1 looks complete with cabs 2 & 10 (pretty sure Summer Lane is 10) currently being installed. 1 is on the corner of New road and Holwell and 2 is on the corner of New road & Market street.

What's the cab number at Milton & Southdown?

Edit: Found it, it's 21. Tricky to get a cab in near there though, unless its placed on the corner of Southdown & Upton Manor.

I was looking on the Torbay planning website and notice that Cudhill near to me had planning permission for FTTC cab, where are you getting the information on what cabs have been done / are getting done?

The superfast website link just says June 2013.

Is that cab 8 - if so, it's been installed. I drove past it earlier this afternoon.

I use the Roadworks.org site - there is very little forward planning for the cabs as the disruption appears to be very minimal, so it's just checking that site every day or two to see when the telephone icon appears. The info normally shows if its NGA related work.

Install 1m of 1 way poly duct in Carriageway,Install 2m of 1 way poly duct in Footway,Install 2m of 1 way power duct in Footway,Performing an 1excavation to expose existing power cable in Footway,Provide 1 Cabinet and base (NGA cabinets)

Fibre works - New Road (from Cudhill to Brixham Road):
Locate and excavate 1 blockage in existing duct,Provide 1 fibre joint in cable,Test 1 existing ducts for spare capacity

Anyone care to confirm the CAB 21 install? I'm only back Friday night so I'll have a look on the weekend if not.
