Extention to PCP and FTTC Cab


[link to this post]
 
I've noticed a extra section thats been added to both the current FTTC cab and the PCP that i'm connected to! What's all this about? It's like a quarter of the size of both the cabs thats been bolted on to the sides of the cabs!

With out pictures hard to confirm, but probably expansion to PCP to cope with the extra copper links to the fibre twin, and for the fibre twin a side expansion to offer more VDSL2 ports

It won't be that, it won't have the angled base.

It'll be a regular pcp extension along with a fibre cab extension. Both added to allow extra VDSL subscribers to the cabinet.

My guess, like others have said... An unvented expansion pod on the PCP for additional tie cables which link the PCP to the fibre cabinet. A vented expansion pod on the fibre cabinet to add additional ports. How many ports will depend on what size Huawei cabinet it is.

edit: if it's a "pod" on the fibre cabinet it will be a small Huawei.

Correct, it's the small Huawei.

Yeah the PCP cab does not have the angled base, which is rather odd if it were to be the g.fast upgrade.

If it is just a normal capacity upgrade, its pretty coincidental that it's in the same time frame as g.fast upgrades are happening and BT are flirting with my happiness in thinking i'll be getting faster speeds laugh

Not really - both are happening at the same time. I know your post was probably a semi-joke anyway, but I'm just saying that there are a lot of "simple" expansion pods being installed at the moment.
