I have noticed that next to a Fibre cabinet & PCP down the street, there seems to be a giant white pole. Is this some kind of Microwave receiver/transmitter? There seems to be an extra white box next to it too. At street level there seems to be a PCP, a ECI fibre cabinent, an unidentified white cabinet and an unidentified giant white pole.
Also, down the street, there seem to be two large green boxes that look like PCPs to the left of another large white pole with a bulge at the top. There doesn't seem to be an ECI or Huawei cabinet next to these though.
What are these poles? My cabinet doesn't have any of these next to them, but 2 in my area do. I'm just wondering if my FTTC cabinet is fed by some kind of crazy wireless system, but my pings and download speed seem great.
I'm on the outskirts of a major UK town, so I'm not out in the sticks. Those poles are at the top of a large hill which makes me wonder.. are they maybe just mobile phone masts, perhaps 4G that link in with the Openreach architecture?
I haven't been to look at them up close, but they don't seem to have any visible markings. I can take better pictures if needed.
