BT have recently installed a new green cabinet next to my current telephone cabinet in hethersett. From looking at pictures of FTTc cabinets on the internet I can confirm that the cabinet BT have installed next to my telephone cabinet is an FTTC one. The cabinet looks to have been connected up to my existing PCP cabinet but does not appear to be in use as it isnt making any noise. Does this mean Fibre is coming to my area soon? It's strange because the superfast open reach website does not show my exchange as being in any of the roll out plans it isnt even marked as a "future exchange"!! It is simply marked as under evaluation. Also nothing about FTTC is shown for my line when I check it on the Openreach ADSL checker site. Why would BT install FTTC cabinets but not publisise any rollout plans? And does this mean that fibre is coming to my area any time soon? Is it normal for BT to install FTTC cabinets before updating my exchange (Hethersett) and laying fibre- I havent seen any signs of BT laying fibre in my area!? I am connected to cabinet 7 of the hethersett exchange in norfolk.
If fibre optic broadband is coming to my area how long do you think it will take before i am able to receive it?
Thanks in advance for any answers- I am really looking forward to the prospect of an improved broadband connection with FTTC.
