Is it G.Fast?


[link to this post]
 
I live in bolton and Ive noticed a lot of work on the cabinets and I know we are a G.Fast trial area and recently in the local area including cab 130 (mine) and 37 which i will be connected to after I move. They have added this side extension to both, is this just a copper extension or is this g.fast. I cant see gfast coming up on the superfast checkers anywhere for my line, address or new address

Yes, I can confirm that is a G.Fast pod.

I've just spotted one in Wombledon; cabinet 25 from the Putney exchange. Not my cabinet, sadly. It doesn't appear to be live yet.

It has been very busy at my cabinet recently.

The day I was connected to the G Fast pod on the right, contractors turned up to add the pod on the left.

I suspect the additional 'pod' on the left will be to make room in the extra tie pairs and jumpers, and hopefully not leave the cabs interior overly congested.

I think you are right.

Although G Fast isn't congested in the cab yet - I am the only one it!

I wasn't referring to the product itself being congested, I meant an excess of jumper wires in the PCP.

When originally designed there was only ever one jumper, from the E(exchange) to the D(distribution) pairs. With up to 600 plus wires, the assemblies could be quite 'busy' ...... When FTTC came along anyone taking the product would end up having two jumpers on their circuit, with FTTC being so popular there might be an additional 400 jumpers ...... some cabs becoming virtually unworkable.

Many of the larger telephone exchange frame rooms suffered similar fates as ADSL meant a doubling of many circuits jumpers.
