First time post, newbie, etc, etc, so take it easy if this is an easy query to answer !!!!
Our local exchange, Snodland, in Kent has been FTTC enabled for getting onto about 3 1/2 years now. A fibre cabinet was planned to have been placed at the top of my road about 18 months back, by telephone cabinet P15, and indeed, a contractor came along, dug a hole, then a couple of days later, filled the whole back in. When I looked at the Openreach website about cabinet P15, it stated that undisclosed underground cables were found where the fibre cabinet was supposed to be placed, and that new placing was being sought for this cabinet.
In the meantime, a new fibre cabinet has been installed in a street, next to telephone cabinet P1, which is about 200 yards from where the original fibre cabinet was going to be placed (P15), and that cabinet P1 has been live since July. We are supposed to be going live by the end of March 2014, but this has been put back many previous times before.
Is it possible that the fibre cabinet for P15 will be merged with cabinet P1, or will P15 need its own fibre cabinet ??
Many thanks for any answers given.
