Wondering are these 2 fibre cabinets because on BT Infinity checker it says I can get infinity and 68-80mbps?

Yes they are. Just different manufacturers.

The label should probably be 96, not 128.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Without knowing your address and looking at actual cab layout on ground impossible to say

If you put your phone number into this checker, it gives your phone cabinet number on the line above the table.

Find that and see which of the two it is most probably connected to. The fibre cabinets don't normally have numbers.

But does it matter? Given the super estimate you have?

It would be somewhat unusual to have an eci and huawei cabinet in such close proximity. Possible misidentification and one is the PCP.

I've seen this a couple of times locally - there can be two PCPs next door to one another, with two associated fibre cabs.

The ECI was probably done as part of the commercial rollout, the Huawei was BDUK infill.

I spotted two in Sheringham yesterday (cabs 2 and 9 are next to each other), and their evil twins also stand next to each other just in front of them. Alas Streetview doesn't have the fibre cabs showing, and I didn't take a picture...
