I am a long time reader of this forum and thought i would finally sign up to see if any of you have any further information which is not in the public domain regarding cabinet 2 on Bampton castle (SMBNC) located in Aston, West Oxfordshire.
I have been following the BDUK Oxfordshire rollout with interest through roadworks.org, and notice that a number of fibre laying works have been completed in and around Aston/Bampton.
The first phase of these appeared to link Aston (my location) with Bampton (exchange location and several other cabinets with fibre twins). The latest phase appears to be due to complete this Friday (25th) which seems to be linking Brize Norton (FTTC enabled) with Bampton itself. I have also noticed a few trucks towing reels of what i guess is armoured fibre cable on the routes as indicated on the roadworks. My actual fibre twin for cabinet 2 went in the ground with power connected to it a couple of months ago.
Thankyou for any information any of you may have about it, i am rather hoping that all of this fibre cable work is the final piece of the jigsaw for it. Plenty of other BDUK cabs in West Oxon have gone live already so heres hoping..
