Hatherleigh Cab5 (EO lines) info required


[link to this post]
 
Hi

I live in Hatherleigh, Devon a small town that was one of the first batch to get upgraded to fibre a year ago via the Connecting Devon and Somerset BDUK. Unfortunately the majority of the town is connecting direct to the exchange mine included!

I have been in contact with CDAS several times but they aren't very forth coming, the usual response "keep checking our website and twitter we will post information when we have it" Their map is good but it gets updated very infrequently

Anyhow I stumbled upon a website from another thread on here that has more information.

I have found out my address and the rest of the EO line will be on Cab5, this will be a new cabinet I presume at the exchange? as currently there are only 3 cabs 1,3,4 (no 2 was rearranged to exchange only a few years ago doh!)

It states fibre planned BDUK CDS 12b does anyone one have any insider knowledge of when this may be happening?

Thanks in advance.

A LOT of EO areas have had this change started, so when is hard to predict at this time.

I am seeing new EO cabinet areas go live for a service in Devon and other areas, so it is happening. Keep chasing County Council for information, that is a big part of their roll to keep the public informed and and informed public is more likely to buy the service.

Just found out a new PCP no.5 and fibre cab are being installed to rearrange the EO lines, live by the end of the year (fingers crossed!!!)

This might be the case going by the following stats for that exchnage:

  • Exchange Name: Hatherleigh
  • Exchange Code: WWHATH
  • County: Devon
  • EO Blocks
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 0
    • ADSLx: 503
    • None: 0

  • Cabinet: 1
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 590
    • ADSLx: 7
    • None: 4

  • Cabinet: 3
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 64
    • ADSLx: 27
    • None: 2

  • Cabinet: 4
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 152
    • ADSLx: 0
    • None: 0

  • Cabinet: 5
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 0
    • ADSLx: 1
    • None: 0

However some EO Lines may also get put onto cabinets 3 and 4 due to the free space in those and also depending on the locations of those cabinets to the postcodes.

I doubt they will get rearrange to to P3 or P4. P3 is around 2-3 miles from the exchange and P4 is 3-4 miles away.

Looking on the code look site the majority are within half a mile from the exchange.

https://www.telecom-tariffs.co.uk/codelook.htm?xid=1...

The figures you have posted is that the number of active FTTC lines per cab?

That doesn't mean a thing, BTOR have put addresses onto a cabinet that is miles away and then fibred up the cabinet and all the homes that are miles away don't get offered fibre, which kind of sucks.

I have also seen some EO lines that was getting around +13Mbps get moved over to an existing cabinet resulting in a longer copper line reducing the ADSLx speeds down to ~3Mbps and then get refused fibre due to being too far.

Common sense would of been to install a new cabinet in the EO area.

All figures I posted is current live data, I did a check with the BT DSL Checker on all those addresses, all 1,350 addresses.

Like for example for cabinet 3 it shows the following:
  • Cabinet: 3
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 64
    • ADSLx: 27
    • None: 2

Basically the above means at best that currently 64 addresses on that cabinet can get FTTC, 27 addresses can get ADSLx (ADSL Max, ADSL 2, ADSL 2+ depending what's offered) and 2 addresses that cannot get any broadband at all.

I don't really know why the remaining 29 addresses cannot get FTTC, could be due to being too far away, so FTTC doesn't get shown as an option, or maybe they are not fully finished moving addresses over.

Hope that helps.

Paul

That does sound about right for cab 3, its is literally in the middle of nowhere LOL so I expect its the line length to the properties which means some can't get it.
It most be one the smallest Cab's around in terms on lines connected to it!

Didn't realise there is over 500 EO address, on Code look site it does state my address will be P5 as from what I can tell so will all the other EO lines so I presume they will go be putting a new cab at the exchange?

Which was why I was saying that I think some EO Lines will go onto the other cabinets to fill them up a bit more.

Yeah, loads are due to be moved over to cabinet 5.

Does it have 5 written on it?

I have found the location that roadworks says which matches the place you showed in the picture: Google Maps sadly the Googlemobile hasn't been in that area since Sep 2011.

Here is what Roadworks says:
Date: 12 Jun - 25 Jun (estimated)
Latitude: 50.82083669
Longitude: -4.06891642
Location: OUTSIDE TELEPHONE EXCHANGE INTO CARRIAGEWAY ON VICTORIA ROAD.
Description: (BDUK WORK) Install 22m of 2 poly ducts in Carriageway,Install 2m of 2 poly ducts in Footway,Provide 1 Cabinet and base (NGA cabinets).
There is no mention of a cabinet number, but it is probably cabinet 5 due to the others are already in place.

I did another check on the exchange and nothing much has changed yet apart from 2 lines on cabinet 3 getting fibre:
BT Wholesale Exchange Information.
  • Exchange Name: Hatherleigh
  • Exchange Code: WWHATH
  • County: Devon
  • EO Blocks:
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 0
    • ADSLx: 503
    • None: 0

  • Cabinet: 1
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 590
    • ADSLx: 7
    • None: 4

  • Cabinet: 3
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 66
    • ADSLx: 27
    • None: 0

  • Cabinet: 4
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 152
    • ADSLx: 0
    • None: 0

  • Cabinet: 5
    • FTTP: 0
    • FTTC: 0
    • ADSLx: 1
    • None: 0

All above information is correct at time of 22:45 17-Jun-2015.
But at least there are cabinets smile
