WHitely Bay Cabinet 63 updates


[link to this post]
 
Do any tech gurus have any idea about this cabinet.

We've been here for 3 years and currently still only getting 1.5mbps max. Not sure if we class as a broadband 'notspot' or not but sure feels like it.
Recently there was some work done and the openreach site updated saying accepting orders. Then went back (the next day) to being 5 months where its remained for the past 3 months. I did get in touch with someone somewhere who suggested possibely Feb ?

Any ways of finding out? So frustrating living on such slow speeds

Work is due to start Wednesday this week for the cab installation and power connection, although I heard a few weeks ago they were still awaiting the quote from NPG for the cost of the power - this may have now been sorted.

The Openreach site was a bug a few months back.

There was a delay in getting the wayleave granted as the fibre twin is not being sited on the path but on the grass where the existing PCP is located.

As far as I know the fibre spine work has already been completed so there should be no delays from that perspective as the fibre has been brought to the nearest joint box

It all depends but it can be as quick as that.

My parents cab around the corner near the vets in Moorside was accepting orders 20 days after the work started.

I think cab 62 on the estate was only about 4-5 weeks after but again, it all depends on what they find when they start doing the dig.

With it being a new estate I'm hoping there's no issues. We moved to a new build at the end of November and the 2.2meg we get is not really cutting it!

You'll see when the work starts as the cab is at the entrance of the estate, on the left hand side where the speedbump is smile

We've been in for 3 years this month - intially it was 4 months before any internet then we've had 1.4-1.6 max since then!!!! I feeel your pain!!

Yeah we live just opposite the current show home at the back end of the estate.

Initally the speed was 0.6mbps but a visit from Openreach identified that the shoddy cable that Bellway had installed from the external line into the master socket was the issue.

Hopefully the cab is ready soon and we'll be able to enjoy proper internet laugh
