BDUK Yeovil Area


[link to this post]
 
I am connected to Yeovil exchange cabinet 51. My cabinet has recently had a fibre cabinet installed next to it. Watching the process I believe that the fibre cabinet is connected to power. I've no idea about how the fibre actually gets there. I understand that this is part of the BDUK programme. I can find no information about when (or if) this will go live. The Connecting Devon & Somerset web site says that my area isn't due for survey until Jan - June 2015. This seems odd to me as the cabinet is already there! Openreach data gives no idea of fibre ever been available for my home. There are at least two other cabinets within half a mile or so that seem the same. One, also in an area 'due for survey next year', shows planned roadworks for later this year. My cabinet is off road on a footpath so I don't expect to get anything on it from that angle. An email to Connecting Devon & Somerset produced such a generalised answer which suggests that they either don't know themselves or can't be bothered to answer a specific question. Any ideas as to where I can cat more info?

Suspect the website is behind on the roll-out plans

I live in the area and drive past this cabinet occasionally. It seems to me that BTOR have been struggling with this one. The new fibre cab (the larger kind) is in position just down the hill on the main road, but there is still ongoing road works by the old cabinet 51. I'm sure they have been there a few weeks now.

My cabinet is definitely 51 on the path leading from the ASDA traffic lights to Abbey Manor Estate. The cabinet is the same (large one) as the Preston Road and Bluebell Road Road cabinets and all three seem to have a similar status. It's definitely 51 because that is where Openreach had to go to fix a fault about a year ago. My postcode is BA21 3SB. The whole cabinet 51, not the fibre one, was replaced after being set on fire just before that.
fault.

The cabinet is just beyond the lamppost up this path.

Ah, that is indeed not the one I've been driving past.

I do think that the database that the wholesale checker uses does need some updating though. I am waiting for the activation of a different cabinet (19) in Yeovil and I can see the work taking place, but the checker shows no estimated date of when it will be available to place an order.

Do any of the checkers give a date for when you will be able to sign up? I thought it went from "not currently available" to "available", no? Unless you're talking about the RFS dates, which in my experience are merely estimates.

Cabinet is now completed. I would expect it to be available to order soon
