Sorry, you'll have to wait.
FTTC cabinets only have so many spare connections. Once they are used customers will no longer be able to order.
Openreach will then do one of the following (which can take time):
- Add additional cross connections and change the equipment to facilitate more connections per card (not sure if this is standard practice)
- Add additional cross connections and cards to the cabinet
- Add an additional cabinet
All of that takes times. Cabinets near me are hitting similar demand spikes. We have an area near me where one cab went live and was unavailable to order the next day!
