Cabinet.


[link to this post]
 
I drove past a cabinet in town yesterday and noticed it has a new box on the side similar to the picture below but i am not sure if it has the vents on the front, could someone tell me what is this?

That is a picture of a g.fast pod. When it goes live it will be able to provide connection speeds >300Mbps to those close to the cabinet.

If it hasn't got the vents it is just a PCP extension for additional cables, usually extra tie pairs for a nearby FTTC cabinet so not as exciting as G.fast.

Thanks, i am going out in a few minutes so will get a picture of the cabinet as i am not sure if it is the same as the one i showed in the OP.
Assuming this is the same is this FTTP as at the moment i have FTTC.

Nothing to do with FTTP, G.Fast is higher speeds using the existing phone line.
