Some cabinets have already gone live in the past couple of weeks, and today a new item has appeared on roadworks.org for the following:
"Build 1 concrete chamber 2315mm x 737mm x 1565mm deep in Footway, Demolish 1 existing joinbox(s) or cabinet base(s), Erect/Renew 1 PCP cabinet and base (600mm x 300mm x 1000mm), Install 3m of 4 poly ducts in Verge, Install 3m of 5 poly ducts in Footway, Install 3m of 7 poly ducts in Verge..."
I presume that's all but it may continue beyond the text that the Roadworks site is showing.
Google Streetview of the work location mentioned below. https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-0.111772,3... -- Immediately in the background the other side of the trees is the exchange building.
This new work is located next to where the exchange is (PE26 1NF) and is next to an area shown on http://www.connectingcambridgeshire.co.uk/getting-su... as being white on the rollout map (better broadband coming soon at a later date) The properties in that "white" area are all EO lines, including the one I'm on. The new work is also alongside where the fibre was being put in to existing ducting to the other cabinets from the end of 2013, and although I've not been able to find a number for the properties immediately alongside this area (which went green first - about 11 properties on PE26 1NA) I think they may be FTTP with no cabinet feeding them as they were showing as green on the map before any cabinets had been shown as enabled on http://www.connectingcambridgeshire.co.uk/getting-su...
On the Streetview you'll see there is a small chamber and then a bench which covers a larger chamber (the bench isn't there now and hasn't been for quite a while). Both of these were where Openreach have been pushing fibre down and back up again on the other side of the road where it has gone to the cabinets around the town and no doubt also to feed the exchange from elsewhere.
Is this to enable the EO area lines (Fairfields Drive, Bryan Close, Wyatt Close, Old Station Road, Signal Road) with FTTC (new PCP being installed, which I presume means network re-arrangement for the 130+ or so properties in that area) or FTTP, or something else?
The chamber seems relatively large from what I can tell and from other threads on here it suggests something that size is usually FTTP rollout with an aggregation node in the chamber - anyone know what the likely outcome is going to be based on the info above?
