FTTC/P & Turves


[link to this post]
 
I'm trying to find out what plans there are, if any. For FTTC/P at the Turves exchange. All the lines in the village are EO with the first cab (that I can find) in Coates.

I have had a look about the interwebs for info and even tried contacting connecting Cambridgeshire but have had no reply from them.

Three cabinets

60% on cabinets, 40% EO roughly.

Cab 1 and 3 might just be large enough to justify BDUK work, but depends county probably has lots of others to compete for the money, i.e. luck of the draw. Cab 2 is a diverse area, but 1 and 3 are fairly dense in Coates.

For Turves your EO is spread out, so a cabinet would not help a lot, and spread makes FTTP expensive.

In short I would suggest Turves is dicey for the 95% superfast target, but cabs 1 and 3 are likely by 2017, even if no current plans. Just my thoughts.

I was hoping that a cab would get installed at the exchange. There is around 200 homes close to it and around 50 further out but would still benefit.

Exchange is too small for a Handover node, so other cabinets other side of the water would link to Whittlesey for their FTTC. I see around 150 premises in a reasonable cluster, if there are more new builds going on then might sway things to a sooner roll-out.

So longer fibre run and need for a PSTN cab and FTTC cabinet increase costs per premise, i.e. other cabinets will most likely be done first and then the EO cluster, hence my suggestion of looking beyond current project and maybe beyond 2017 too.

Basically willing to bet plenty of other easier areas to give a better Value for money in the county.

My mother told me that she saw a lot of activity last week with men laying cable from Turves into Coates.

She cant remember what the cable looked like so no idea if its related to FTTC or not.

Anyone in the area see anything?

I drove past Coates on Tuesday morning there were two vans towing cables parked in the layby where the PCP is.

Fibre aggregation node, fibre splitter maybe they use chambers that size as well as for standard copper jointing too these days.

The fibre is run in segments with it splitting off to various other locations, or just to keep the length sensible for blowing down the tubing, so you are seeing more chambers than we had previously.
