I'm currently in a cabled area and get my broadband from Virgin and like a lot of others I'm not entirely happy with them.
Over the last couple of weeks Openreach have been busy laying fibre in the area, this was confirmed by an OR engineer working in a chamber at the top of my road he told me to lookout for the new cabinets being installed as an indicator of when FTTC will be available.
I've done a postcode check and my exchange is labelled as FE and my cabinet number is 46 and this is where I get confused, I cannot find any existing BT cabinets at all in my area, all the cabinets that are visible are for cable.
So in my case does a cabinet = a chamber of which there are plenty ?
Are Cable and Wireless involved at all as I see from Roadworks.org that they are due to start work next month nearby and "excavate track in f/w (90m) and c/w (10m) to install duct and 2 new f/w chambers".
