Here's an update on the status of the deployment of FTTRN in North Yorkshire, as gleaned from the DSL checker.
Right now, it looks like the FTTRN node in North Yorkshire is live, and properties served by it can order.
The properties are on the Leyburn exchange, and were originally served by cabinet 1 (in Middleham), before becoming served by a new cabinet 10.
The evidence mostly comes from looking at the history of FTTC availability to the properties - how it originally became available, then was lost as a new cabinet was added to the exchange, then became available again. The only thing wrong is that the new speed estimates (with the new cabinet) remain identical to the original ones (when served by the original cabinet).
This is a new cabinet, and it is different from any other PCP or FTTC cabinet I have seen before. It seems rather smaller, but has air vents. There was writing on the top of the cabinet that said "Cab 10 in JF6 with fibre node" suggesting that it might just be an empty box, with the works held underground, or perhaps just the PCP.
Top - with written note
The new cabinet is located 2km (road distance) from cabinet 1, which is itself around 3.75km (road distance) from the exchange in Leyburn.
The affected properties end up ranging from being 10m from the new cabinet, with a few around 400m, and most then up to 1.8km. The last property then appears to be 2.6km from the new cabinet.
That final property adds up to being 8.35km from the exchange.
Unfortunately, the speed estimates remain as they were when served by the original cabinet, suggesting that the tool is not capable of displaying the trial estimates correctly.
The closest property will be able to get 80/20 speeds.
All affected properties were served by Leyburn cabinet 1 (which is actually sited in the centre of Middleham), ADSL2+ available
Leyburn's cabinet 1 goes live with FTTC.
TThe future FTTRN properties remain served by cabinet 1, but FTTC is now available at speeds between 10-17 down, 1-2 up.
FTTC speed estimates adjusted very slightly
19 properties changed to being served by cabinet 10 (a new cab number for the exchange). However, FTTC availability is lost, and these lines go back to ADSL2+ only.
18 properties changed to show FTTC is now available from cabinet 10. The speed estimates are the same (low) as October 23rd.
1 property changed to show FTTC is now available from cabinet 10, but that FTTC is too far (as it was on October 23rd)
