Didn't you say cabinet 49 on the BT forum?

Cab 95 only serves around 114 homes (at the time it was activated).

The smallest Huawei cabs can support 128 customers so it should only be a case of a new line card and possibly extra tie pairs in the cabinet. I suggest contacting Openreach again.

Or, contact Superfast NI as they paid for the cab upgrade.

I'm pretty sure it's cabinet 95 that serves me.

I have contacted openreach a lot lol, but they can tell me nothing at the minute

Thanks for the reply

That assumes 1) they have been upgraded to 32 port line cards 2) there is sufficient tie pair capacity and 3) the premises count is correct

Being a new cab I'd expect so to all of the above.

Maybe 1) depending on how long its been in the planning pipeline, but I wouldn't take 2 and 3 for granted by any means

Looks like you'll need to get yourself a 4G mifi for the time being.

ok just an update for you guys.

Everyday I have been checking the FTTC cabinet locator site which shows current status on the cabinet.

Friday morning I looked and low and behold it mentioned that fibre was available so I immediately got on the phone and ordered with my provider, everything seems to be going ok with the order so far with an estimated activation date of this Friday coming.

On checking the FTTC site again on Saturday it had gone back to saying "demand was high and you may not be able to order"

I'm hoping all is good with my order, if by chance my provider comes back to me and says that they cant full fill it do I have any come back.

Cheers
