Last week "96 Cab" was sprayed on the ground but the day after it was replaced with "288 Cab" (and a bigger outline) and that seems to be the size of base they have now installed. I asked Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire (BBfN) and they said a 288 cabinet was always planned. Interestingly they are installing 96 cabs as apparently they had four others that week and they suspect that is why it got confused. So not a case of the smaller cabs not being available.
I understand that they won't fill the cabinet but it does seem an odd choice to go with the big cabinet for such a small number of lines especially when (presumably) Openreach use quite an aggressive ratio in their estimates (or it would have been commercially viable).
Thought people might find this interesting or have view on why they've chosen the larger cab.
