Filled Cabinet


[link to this post]
 
Looks as though after all the publicity,etc, residents have filled Hunslet cabinet 82's available capacity. In a day.

It's disappeared from the checker unless checking via a phone number that has an FTTC order against it, presumably because there's no date yet for more capacity.

Does this sound like the likely course of events, and how long have people waited for new cards / tie pair installs?

Hah!

In this case it's correct. The existing card(s) was/were filled in what was apparently record time BT inform.

More capacity coming ASAP. Guess they message that more would be needed as this was a community driven programme was lost and it went in with a single 48 port card it seems. Cabinet went live early yesterday morning, was full by yesterday afternoon/evening.

do you think BT are still wondering if the cabinet is viable smile

sold out in a day.

my area they didnt exactly rush out early and it had a 2nd cabinet installed within 6 months.

what isp's?

I think I will be ordering a 2nd FTTC line soon, see what the new pair throws up, then consider cancelling the old service, but may keep 2 FTTC.

I expect this is because it's all OR.

If it's anything else, then the BT monster has to follow OFCOM rules and go through all the processes any other ISP call in would have to go through. This reduces their responsiveness, but meets "guidelines"...

It will also be full again very soon. There are >48 ports worth of orders outstanding, that's just the people who have posted on the community Facebook page, and just a single card has been installed.

Looks like the take up prediction was nearly as off as the premises passed information.
