Someone will be able to tell you for sure, but if the new cabinet is green, looks different to a PCP, and has vents in it, then yes, it's coming.

Put your phone number into the checker below and see if it indicates that fibre is coming soon (the postcode checker, which is less precise, says nothing about fibre for you... that doesn't necessarily mean that it's not coming, though):

You are connected to cabinet number 2 on the Blaenavon exchange.

Work has started to install the fibre network in this exchange area. The first cabinets on the Blaenavon exchange area will be upgraded by the end of March, 2015.

I don't know why adslmax has started making all of these posts which could be misleading lately (and containing already known info); it won't necessarily be done by the end of March. BT put in placeholder dates in quarterly stages, and if they aren't met, they just shift the placeholder date along by 3 months. If you'd have asked this question towards the end of last month, it's possible you'd be expecting it by the 31st December.

However, the fact that you've actually seen some fibre work being done is promising. Just don't bet your mortgage on it wink

PCP - Primary Connection Point. A phone cabinet. The vents however suggest an FTTC cabinet. Unless it's a combo cabinet - I believe there are some in Northern Ireland. Where are you? (Edit - Welsh Wales I see).

Photos uploaded somewhere may be a help.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 57.1/14.8Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM
