How quickly will cabinet fill up?


[link to this post]
 
Fibre is now available in my street.. I'm with Be on a fixed IP and yet to hear from Sky about transfer to them and how they will be dealing with Be people like me who require a fixed IP.

Right now I believe my only (reasonably priced) option for fibre is Plus Net.

I've heard of fibre cabinets filling up to capacity so I worry that if I wait for Sky to act I may miss out and the cabinet become full. Is that a real concern to have. I'm in a major UK city, residential area with mostly flats, so lots of potential users who could want fibre.

Wait for Sky's offer to Be users or just go to PlusNet?

Thanks!

How quick ...

It could be a week if a lot of people were watching and put their order in as soon as they were able. Or it may never fill ...

Any idea of how many connections can a fibre cabinet take?

Which of the three FTTC Huawei/ECI cabinets on this page is it? (The ECI ones can now have more connections in the same box). But the numbers give a clue tongue.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 51.8/16.8Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Thanks.. I think it's one of the 128s. I'm not nearby at the moment to double check.

And even if it fills up, they have been added second cabinets in areas with high demand.

Won't happen overnight, but it does happen

I never seen any cabinets had second one in many areas. Eg: two FTTC cabinets together in same place.

I have not seen one that I can recall a location of, but have people posting about extra cabinets and delay in being able to order while second cabinet is commissioned.

Look harder. Please also leave character and type properly this was quite difficult to understand.

EDIT: Actually you posted on the thread in question.

In my area their are a few with a second smaller pcp, also have 2 sites where their are 2 large FTTC cabinets next to each other and a pcp- the 2nd pcp is further away.

The most odd thing i have seen is where one pcp has had a total of 3 dslam installed next to it but 2 have been removed- one large and one small.
