CMETT, cabs installed November still not live


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

We had the two FTTC cabinets for CMETT installed in November 2014 and the RFS date was showing as 31/12/2014.

Then Dec/Jan I cannot remeber which some roadworks for power to the cabs were put in place.

I have tried asking the BDUK for an update but they have no information.

Would be grateful if anyone can give me an update or if there is any indication of a go live date for the Ettington exchange.

Thanks

According to my sources, your exchange will be fibre enabled by the end of March. Your cabinets 1 and 2 will be enabled shortly afterwards. There are no plans for Cab 3

Don't you mean Cabinets 2 and 3 are down for fibre, Cabinets 1 and 4 have no fibre info on them yet.

Well saw OpenReach vans with a large coil of what looked like hose pipe so I guess they were trying to unblock the duct for the Halford FTTC cabinet, and what was more impressive was that this was on a Sunday!

Coil of yellow hose pipe diameter stuff? If so then yes duct clearance.

There are those that say Openreach should be more pro-active at clearing ducts but the problem is on some ducts you clear it one week and it will be blocked the next. There are even some in Cornwall that are tidal.

If the blockage is under a junction and they need to dig down to clear it, this can also lead to delays as it is not an emergency and a council may only give roadworks permission a long way into the future.

I do wonder though. Our duct was blocked which delayed fibre laying. Yet the duct was blocked only at a spot where the manhole covers had collapsed. The collapse was dangerous (you could put your foot into the hole) on an unlit road in a village. Reported 6 months ahead and they still left it until they started laying for 3 cabs in the village - then suddenly 'discovered it' and delayed the work for that cabinet by 3 months...

Perhaps one hand doesn't know what the other had is doing....

We had an Openreach team turn up to pull fibre through ducts that did not exist on 2 occasions for FTTP installs. And they have surveyed each install in our close separately and added ducting as required for each install rather than looking at the 16 houses an a whole and working on how to duct them all. Definitely room for much improvement and stopping wasting money.

After many false alerts via followthatpage (small text changes triggering the alert) FTTC has finally landed laugh

So about 5 months from growing a cabinet to it becoming available to order.
