[link to this post]
 
Hi everyone.

Can some tell me where the cabinet my street is connected to. I live in cove, Aberdeen on langdykes drive.

I have noticed that 90% of cove has had there cabinet activated for over 2 weeks but yet we are still waiting.

You need to tell people your post code, have you put your number in the BT Wholesale checker that may give you some info. Or looked at the Openreach where and when map to see if it is delayed?

That's the exchange you are connected to. Although the date says 31st December this is not necessary 100% accurate.

You are connected to Cab 33. This is not yet live from the Infinity checker
see http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php

It is likely that your cab is still being worked on as Aberdeen Kincorth has only just been activated.

There is no individual detail published on a cab basis unless the cab is delayed when a flag appears on the Openreach website telling you what the reason is.

There is nothing on this at present. http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/

The Infinity site says Dec 2012 for your postcde. If you keep checking with your number it will tell you when the cab goes live.

Thanks. I know where cab 33 is. I was I was on something eles as there is no new cab installed near it. So do by always install a new green cab when fiber get installed. There is a massive green unit (i think its a power unit) less than 20 yards away from cab 33 would it be based in there

If you look on this page the ECI and Huawie cabinets are FTTC cabs, does it look like any of them?

The FTTC cab can be up to 100 meters away.

You can also look on here to see if there are any scheduled roadworks for telecoms work where the cabinet is, that can sometimes give you an idea of whats going on.

No, I think that's water and its HUGE - not really a cabinet at that size.
