New cabinet announcement


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I've recently moved to a new development, over 140 houses are being built and at some stage the cabinet we're connected to became full, however extra capacity was added since.
I mentioned it to the Openreach engineer who installed my line and he confirmed the capacity issue, he also said there is a chance that Openreach may add a new cabinet in addition to the current one.

Is there a website where I can keep an eye for a new cabinet commissioning ?

Thanks.

If it involves roadworks then http://www.roadworks.org will show upcoming work up to 12 months in advance once request submitted to council

that suggest you moved to a development that has been connected to an existing fibre cab that may have been there a number of years or not -- so developer asked for copper only !!!! that cab may not be even be the radar for a long while to be upgraded - id raise that with your developer and ask why they did not request fibre and what are they going to do about it

I did ask the developer about fttp a while ago and did not get a reply to my email.
I also checked roadworks and there is nothing scheduled in the next 12 months frown

Put pressure on the developer.

If they're still selling on the estate, put a sign in yor garden advising potential buyers of the poor speeds.

It is very rare to be able to choose between FTTC and FTTP. If FTTP isn't available to you now the chances of it before a national upgrade in a decade or so are extremely slim.

I was hoping openreach will add a new fttc cabinet in the development, especially that the old one we're currently connected to is getting full with only a third of the houses occupied.

If they do, unless some of the development is a very long way from the current one, a new one will be as close as possible to the phone cabinet (PCP), so not far away from the existing FTTC cabinet. It has to be within 100 cabling metres of the PCP. Which in practice gives a preferred ground distance of 50 metres or less and 80 metres at most.
