PINXTON EMPINXT Cabnet 8 FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Hi I am looking for information on PINXTON EMPINXT Cabnet 8 FTTC

Exchange name: Pinxton
Exchange status: Fibre enabled
Cabinet number: 8
Cabinet status: We're working with government and industry to explore ways to bring Superfast fibre to as many people as possible but don't have a plan for your area yet. You might consider co-funding fibre access in your community.

Does any one have any information on when cabinet will be fiber enabled

As the moment there is no information in the public domain about that cabinet being upgraded to FTTC. Looking at the data, that cabinet only seems to serve a few postcodes (DE55 2DE, DE55 2DW, DE55 2DX and part of DE55 2ER) so possibly not very many houses.

I guess you'll need to get in touch with someone who works for superfast Nottinghamshire to see if there are any plans for that cabinet - http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/business-employmen...

Given Virgin Media is at least partially in that cabinet area it reduces the likelihood of any help.

They can only fund with public money those addresses where virgin media is not, so if just 3 or 4 properties not covered by Virgin, while cheap for the public purse, BT with the large number of premises in more rural spots can easily suggest other cabinets where they don't have to spend as much of their own money.

Its 42 new houses (harron homes) no Virgin on estate
no ADSL/ phone to most of the estate still at the moment.
i am fed from an over head line from the main road as the under ground cables still not in from BT Open reach.

Planing said this:
Strategic infrastructure and services (DCC):
Sets out Derbyshire County Council’s
request for developer contributions that would like
ly be required as a result of the
anticipated impact of the proposed development on s
trategic infrastructure and
statutory services:

Access to high speed broadband services for future
residents (in conjunction
with service providers) – developer should ensure f
uture occupants have
access to appropriate communications infrastructure

But from looking at some of the existing postcodes on the cabinet, VM does serve them.

So you are left with justifying the word for the 42 new premises, and a council that may wonder why the developer did not work with Virgin Media or Openreach as part of the build.

Or put another way, lots of Derbyshire rural people will have been campaigning before these new premises so may have the attention of those controlling direction of roll-out.

Sounds to me like the council thinks the developer should be working with - and probably contributing to the costs of - Openreach.

The area of new-build homes is where councils don't yet have the power to force the developer to make sure superfast speeds are available. And they can't have included them in their BDUK plans.

The onus shifts to the buyers of new properties - to just not buy them.
