I've been following from the sideline a few years now, but finally came to jump out in the free here and ask my question.
Used to live on a newly built estate, with one big cabinet supplying all 220 homes. It turned out, that the cabinet was serving roughly 450 lines in total. We (the residents group) got in touch with OR, who demanded £21k+VAT to consider an upgrade.
We have since moved to Stockport area, and despite we are able to have Virgin Media, i want fibre. I can't (won't) deal more with VM, so currently on DSL from vodafone.
Our cabinet, P2 on MRSTE exchange, seems not to be in any plans to convert to FTTC. Asking the engineer who came to install the line 12 days ago, said the cabinet was serving 6-700 lines.
Guessing from here, this might be the reason, OR ain't too bothered of upgrading it. But can it really be that simple - cabinet too big?
