Is this my local cabinet?


[link to this post]
 
I've used the fttc postcode checker to work out when I can expect FTTC for my phone number and that site indicates that some homes have FTTC but not mine. The information says that my local cabinet is P33 and roughly locates it on the map (the yellow pin) so I've used Google Streetview and located what I think is cabinet P33

I've looked at some images of BT cabinets on Google and it looks like that Streetview image is my local cabinet, but the question is, when FTTC becomes available for my phone number, will that cabinet be replaced with a new larger one or will the new larger one sit near it?

Just wondering what to keep an eye out for...

The FTTC cabinet usually is located near, in your case probably close on that bit of grass.

Given the prominent 33 looks like it, nice pavement or grass area they can use

The yellow marker for my cab is showing its 3 streets away from where it really is.
How can they get it so wrong when they have all the information in front of them

I think this thread has been the quickest where is my cab to I've ordered, even the installation time is quick, normally it's about 3 weeks.

Yes, I was pretty surprised and amazed at that. Obviously it's just a question of timing and I've been lucky. Let's hope the installation is smooth and that the FTTC upgrade yields the stated 60Mb DL/20Mb UL speeds
