dslam painted on grass


[link to this post]
 
Okay guys weird title I know but i've been waiting for my village (long stratton) to get the fibre upgrade since I moved there and today walking down the road I find this spray painted onto the grass at the top of my small housing estate. Does this finally mean the end of 1.2 upload speeds.

Well, you need a DSLAM for FTTC.

Was kinda hoping this would be the case it's just a tad confusing because on the openreach checker it always comes up with exploring solutions.

Sounds like FTTC is coming, but bear in mind it can take a while for it all to be up and running even after DSLAM cabinets get installed.

If the roll-out is part of a county led project then not unusual for the checkers to be behind, as seems some areas prefer no dates until actually live scenario.

We have had a DSLAM location marked up since June last year as part of BDUK . Keep getting told FTTC its coming. Just not when.. So yes it does mean that a survey for a new FTTC cabinet has been done and its planned for install.
