Frustratingly, it appears that the cabinet that serves my block of flats can't be upgraded for fibre because of underground utilities. However, using the checker at http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/,
it shows the cabinet in the wrong location. The actual position is on the corner of Woodside Park Road and Holden Road.
I've been in touch with nga.enquiries but they unfortunately haven't been much help. I haven't been able to ascertain whether this discrepancy of cabinet positions is deliberate (i.e. they intend to move the cabinet which sounds unlikely) or is a mistake in the data. If it is a mistake, could the planners be looking in the wrong place and if they looked at the correct location, there would be a good chance of us getting fibre? Next to the cabinet is a phonebox which I bet isn't used at all - getting rid of this would surely free up some space!
If anyone has any suggestions on how to get some movement on this, I'd appreciate it!
