Cabinet Information Request


[link to this post]
 
Hi All,

I'm looking for information on Cabinet 34 around the Broughton, Flintshire area.

There is a BT Cabinet here (head towards the roundabout, passed McDonalds, passed Carphone warehouse, then just before the roundabout its on the right hand side) https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Broughton,+Chest...

Is this Cab 34? Can I tell which cabinet is which by any numbers on it?

Can anybody tell me when Cab 34 will be FTTC enabled?

Thanks in advanced.

I'd certainly say from the pic that it's a cab as it's got what looks like a BT manhole next to it. As for finding out the number, not sure. All the ones I've seen usually have the cab number painted on them. Unless that's a fairly new one and they haven't gotten around to numbering it yet.

Looks very new to me, based on the cement work.

I'd check the manhole covers (looks BT to me) to see if it says "BT", "Telephone" or "Post Office" on then, just to be sure.

If there's an electricity warning on it, then probably not a PCP, and maybe a type of FTTC cab?

If you move left or right of that view and zoom in you get a much better view of the cabinet which looks possibly like FTTC. The photo is dated May 2011 though so not that new.

The Postcode Checker for LL13 7LW where that appears to be only shows ADSL. However, the address checker for Unit 6A Island Green Shopping Centre on the same post code (which is the CPWarehouse address) shows near full speed FTTC but it is for Cabinet 20 (if that is the one in the image [or a twin installed since] which seems likely), not Cab 34 that you are looking for.

I expect someone else here will know where yours is....

It's one of these. The number is on the white square at the top right. In the OP's case Ribble has already confirmed it is 34.

Ribble, thanks for the confirmation - any plans for it to be upgraded? This must be the cabinet that 50+ houses will be connected to on the new estate.

Thanks
