No idea, most cabinets were done commercially, but some are down for the Bucks & Herts BDUK project they are best place for further information in theory.

A lot depends on the level of overlap with Virgin Media in the cabinet area and the number of lines from the cabinet. P99 is one of the smallest cabinets on the exchange in terms of properties served it looks like.

Note sure on the cabinets location it may be https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.755982,-0.428288,3...

The lucky properties on cabinet P126 look like they might get FTTP.

Looks like 99 is not in any plans at present.
I reckon several cabs will be getting the FTTP treatment though

Having FTTP as your only option is not so great if Openreach want over £3000 to complete the deployment for an individual property.

Thanks for the replies all , thats the cab thanks for that !

Shame its not on any future plans , seems barmy with a big business park next door !


Ironically I can only get 2mb on the BT Line but if i go to the top of the house I can get a 4G mobile signal at 16mb !

If only I could build that into a router and use that all the time and not have to worry about bandwidth issues !!

This would be actual FTTP, and cost the same as FTTC. You're thinking about FTTPoD.

We have seen one case where someone was asked to pay excess charges in a native FTTP area, though I had my doubts and suspected someone was processing it as a Fibre on Demand by mistake.

Don't know what the eventual outcome was, but it would be very odd to both installing the final drop point and then charge high excess charges.

This is native FTTP. I have no option for FTTC. The manifold is in a pavement chamber within 20m of my front door and the aggregation point in another pavement chamber within 100m. Despite this Openreach wanted to charge PlusNet over £3000 for excess construction partly because they originally cabled up our close with armoured cable rather than putting in ducts. I believe that I am the person Mr Saffron is referring to. I am still waiting for a response from him to the enquiry he offered to make.

You can buy routers which will take a 4G dongle through a USB port to use for the WAN if you want.
