A bit of a strange one:
I am on the Tenby exchange. The exchange is scheduled to have fibre ready for December this year.
BT submitted the planning applications recently, and began work on installing new fibre cabinets last week. I think mine is the first cabinet they're doing as it's one of the closest to the exchange, and I haven't seen any work being done on any other cabinets in the town yet.
On Monday 4th August, they dug a hole next to my cabinet (PCP 10). See this photo: http://s17.postimg.org/9p0hbmptr/Cab01.jpg
The hole was left with barriers around it for a week, with various pipes sticking out of it. See this photo: http://s24.postimg.org/y9ae1984l/Cab02.jpg
Then, on Monday this week (the 11th), a truck showed up in the morning with a shiny new fibre cabinet on it. They put the cabinet in the freshly dug hole, connected it all up and whathaveyou, then lay fresh tarmac around it to seal the gaps and finish the job. The barriers were taken away, and off the crew went into the sunset. The install was finished, and our cabinet was ready to go! Happy days!
Today, I was walking past, and had to do a double take - our brand spanking new fibre cabinet has disappeared!
Literally, completely gone.

- they've dug it up, taken it away, and filled the hole where it stood just a few days ago with more tarmac (you can even work out the darker, fresher, cabinet-shaped patch of tarmac within the previous tarmac on the photo!) In fact, if I hadn't seen the cabinet standing there with my own eyes on Monday, I'd have never even known it had existed!
Has anyone heard of anything like this before? Why on earth was it installed, the job completed, and then just... removed?!
Have my fibre dreams come to an end?!
