FTTC cab


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I know in the past I have been talking about the same cab.

Openreach have informed me that Fibre will be available to me by January 2015. Then the council tell me September next year. Also how could they do all the cabling and network stuff in such a short amount of time?

Given enough resources can probably commission a cab from nothing to working in less than a week if they wanted. Just down to cost efficient allocation of the various teams and whether things like road works need to wait for permission to close or narrow a road down.

My parents area is currently being done this weekend.

It takes 3 days per NGA roughly ( they are putting 3 in at the same time) and then a month roughly to get power to it if there is not power nearby. Then the testing which is done remotely and then it's ready for service.

My parents have been given a ready for service date of 31st Dec 2014.

It says

NGA's going in 28Aug- 3rdSept (3 crews and they are all within 1000M of each other) Then power from Sept 9th till sept 18th and then RFS 31st December.
