My exchange is Pollok in Glasgow and my Cabinet is number 52 the exchange is already fiber enabled for about 2yrs to my understanding and as I said in my post there is a green fiber optic cabinet at the end of my street which is not long and there is also one round the corner so all cabling has been done as I am 2 streets away from the exchange.
Ok, well your Exchange was fibre ready back in around 2011 I think.
The cabinet may not be ready yet and may require the actual cables and power.
Once that's done they do some tests on it and if they are happy it then goes live.
I have the following from the BDUK Scot site:
Fibre broadband is currently available to some premises in this area.
Digital Scotland plans to extend fibre broadband coverage in this area. Work under the Digital Scotland programme means that additional premises in this area are currently expected to receive fibre broadband by the end of June 2015. Service availability is subject to available service provider product offerings and can be affected by technology constraints specific to individual circumstances. For more information and to order fibre broadband services check with your Internet Service Provider or look on the Ofcom price comparison site http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/tv-radio/price-compari... .
Your exchange is accepting orders but fibre broadband isn't available to you yet.
You are connected to cabinet number 52 on Glasgow Pollok exchange.
The first homes and businesses in your exchange area now have access to fibre broadband, however not all premises can go live at the same time.
You can find out more about when additional premises are likely to be enabled under the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme by clicking on the coloured area of the map that your home or business is in If you have entered your postcode, click on the area around the pin that shows your location.
If you would like us to contact you when fibre broadband becomes available in your postcode area or to receive a copy of our regular newsletter, register your details here.
Granted its not that much of info, but that's all that I could find.
