Looks more like a double entry for the various EO lines that are going to be upgraded.
One of the areas that I kept track of a year ago was Leyburn, North Yorkshire. At the time, this originally had 9 cabinets - with a "P10" added for the trial FTTRN service.
When I look now, I can see a mix of terminology for changes to be made:
- Two new cabinets "P15" and "P16"; labelled "FTTC not available", but both have BDUK planning phases.
- Six new cabinets "E_nn", labelled in various "FTTC doing ..." states, and all with BDUK planning phases
- Two EO bundles "Exchange 2" and "Exchange 3"; labelled "FTTC not available" with no BDUK planning phases
- Six EO bundles "Exchange nn" (which match the "nn" in the six new cabinets above); labelled with the same "FTTC doing ..." states and BDUK phases as above too.
It looks like the "E_nn" cabinets are indeed placeholders for EO bundles. With two other new cabinets on this exchange, properly numbered but with inconsistent states, it looks like there isn't yet a clear policy.
All the cabinets on the Leyburn exchange have been subsidised by the various "BDUK NYNET" partnership - some in the original "phase 1" and some in the ongoing "phase 2".
However, this exchange shows signs that the 3rd phase money has started to be planned too: the very latest of the 6 cabinets appear with a label of "BDUK NYNET Phase 2a
17b", compared to previous labels like "BDUK NYNET Phase 2 16b" and "Phase BDUK NYNET 10b".
That's the first time I have seen a "Phase 2a" label on any of the North Yorkshire exchanges.
