FTTC/P cab - what's the plan?


[link to this post]
 
My cab in Shrewsbury (64) was slated for FTTC/P on the old 2011 leaked spreadsheet - since then FTTC has come to many areas in the town, but not my cab. BTOR did carry out some work around the streets near to my cab and it seems that fibre has been brought to the poles (I can see it coiled up hanging on the poles I think) but for probably 9 months now, nothing seems to have happened. I'm still on ADSL2+.

The BTOR checker for my number has no mention of fibre at all.

I'm not complaining as my speeds are OK, but I'm just curious as to what the plans are for these FTTC/P cabs? There were a lot of them in the leaked spreadsheet - is it likely that they will turn into FTTPoD instead and I will need to pay (at some indeterminate time in the future) to get the fibre to the house?

That won't be the fibre but black plastic tubes with a yellow stripe I assume.

The FTTP areas went on hold to concentrate on getting rolled out numbers high quickly via FTTC. FTTP is starting to see some progress now.

Email me Andrew@thinkbroadband.com with address details and we can chase Openreach for an update

Thanks Andrew. Yes, you are right, it is the black tubing with a yellow stripe down it. I will email you separately.

That'll be FTTP then. (Did it really give both for the cabinet?)
