Aberystwyth Exchange - enabled, how much longer?


[link to this post]
 
The main town went live last month along with the second most populated village in the area. We're the third most populated village in the area and were next on the list for FTTC, the cabinets went in months ago and for the last couple of weeks we had droves of contractors (Telnet) connecting them all up. I saw them lay the fiber to my cabinet last week. Since then they have moved on to the next village over. The village I live in has had a fiber backbone for years that is rented from BT by the university, I'm assuming because of this they won't need to lay fiber to the exchange which I haven't seen them doing. They just seem to have been connecting all the smaller cabinets (Huawei 288 max type) up to a gigantic PCP that serves the university/student halls.

The Superfast Wales date on the rollout map was June 2014 before it went green. In a case such as this when everything has been seemly connected how much longer can it take? I've been checking the BT Wholesale checker everyday to no avail.

Fibre, Power , copper, electrical testing then commissioning each cabinet , then a matter days. Depends how far along the chain it really is.

Is it in that order? I had assumed that fiber was the last stage. If not then I may be in for a much longer wait that I had anticipated frown.

The order is not fixed or particularly relevant.

For future accuracy I'll make a correction . . . the contractors are from Telent. wink

The main town isn't live .. I am in the centre of town (Buarth area) and there is no availability showing yet. Penparcau can place orders now but I don't think anyone is actually online with fibre yet are they?!

Getting a little frustrated here as the broadband is getting more and more erratic!!

Which village are you in? Is it off the Aber exchange or does it have one of it's own?

The fiber used by the university isn't going to be used to provide FTTC/P.

Which gigantic PCP do you mean? The ones at the juction at the top of Penglais Hill? I think that's a power cab for the mobile mast next to it.

Some cabinets MUST be live as Aber Is marked as accepting orders on the Openreach site. Any activity round cabinet 8 at all (near the church hall in Llanbadarn Fawr)?

If that's the cabinet in question it appears to be for the mobile mast next to it
