Without replacing my ECI modem with my HG612 is there a way to tell what cabinet mine is?

I seem to remember it is a Huawei but when the line was installed the new ECI modem I was given gave slightly better speeds than my HG612 (On SP10 at the time but now flashed with SP08).

Thanks for the headsup, I'm monitoring my HG612 so I should see it change to G.INP shortly, fingers crossed laugh

Do you know how many cabinets they do a day? I'm guessing it's a simple config change for each cabinet, or maybe they do them all in batches in one area.

Do you know what it looks like?

If you find the closest one to your house there's a chance you could be connected to it.

If you are on a "BT" line, not an LLU one, then this checker will tell you your PCP (phone cabinet) number on the line above the estimates table. You should be able to find it, as they generally have their number on them.

The FTC cabinet will be at most 100 metres away, (though 80 metres is also ringing a bell), and almost certainly within 50 cable metres.

BT reported 45,000 lines per day; I reckon that means between 600 and 1,000 cabinets per day.

However, upgrade of the cabinet does not necessarily mean the line profile changes immediately.

It was 24 days between my cabinet upgrade (visible as a 10 minute outage overnight on a BQM) and my line profile changing. Not once, either before the cab upgrade or afterwards, did my line hit any of the old thresholds that would trigger DLM, so the change in line profile was a surprise.

You would need very deep pockets for FTTPoD. A few weeks ago openreach stopped accepting orders for it anyway - probably in order to concentrate their resources on the BDUK rollout that I think has penalty clauses for overruns.

See the dark blue part of this price list. Bear in mind those are ex vat, and are the prices charged to CPs such as BT Wholesale. Both they and the retail ISPs would add a margin and then Vat on the total.
