These cab's are scheduled to be installed before the end of the year and I'm trying to find out what this is going to actually allow to be done, i.e....
Will these cabs be connected to the neighbouring exchange and provision voice and fibre?
Will this just offer a fibre service as everyone on the estate already has voice services from the small exchange (and ADSL, no 21CN or LLU options)?
Will anyone wanting to get the fibre service need to get new copper laid to these cabs?
Will this only serve the immediate area for those already connected to cab's nearby or will people connected to cabs not immediately in the vicinity benefit (i.e. my cab is around 20m from my house, the nearest one of the two new ones will be up to 500m away so will I be excluded)?
Is this a temporary solution, i.e. if the small exchange is allocated funds and upgraded will this mean connections could be shifted to a closer cab in the future for higher speeds?
Hopefully someone out there knows some of these answers as I've only seen this kind of arrangement mentioned a couple of times and never with a lot of detail so any info appreciated.
