How long does it take to expand cabinet capacity?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

When I check if I can get fibre broadband I now get the message "Sorry your serving cabinet is temporarily unavailable,capacity will be restored as soon as possible."

So I assume my cabinet is at maximum capacity and it's down to Openreach to either expand capacity or add another cabinet? Has anyone else been in this situation and how long did you have to wait?

Depends what needs doing, card infill will be days, tie pairs maybe a couple of weeks or more, another cabinet could be months or never.

Noticed a new set of cables being added between the original cabinet and the new FTTC green cabinet while driving to work. Looks like this area needs and is getting an expansion boost.
