Can anyone understand this cabinet setup (map)


[link to this post]
 
Hello

I live on Winwick Park in Warrington. The estate was built just over 10 years ago and was originally using a TPON setup but BT converted to Copper so people could get ADSL. The estate was connected to the main Warrington exchange so ADSL speeds are very slow.

My house WA28HD is according to DSL Checker connected to cab 210. But... Connecting Cheshire have no record of 210 and don't plan on upgrading it to FTTC.

I decided to try and map the cabinet setup using a mix of Google Maps and DSL Checker tool. Can anyone make sense of the setup?

The numbers above the addresses are according to DSL Checker the cab the property is connected to. But I can't actually find any of these cabs on the estate. I have marked on in blue any cabs I can find on the estate.

Any help/pointers much appreciated.

My betting is that the grey TPON cabinets are effectively redundant or just serving those properties that have never ordered ADSL2+.

I think there is possibly some network rearrangement underway, or the BT wholesale checker is giving funny data.

Warrington exchange only has around 129 cabinets, and other databases show for example that WA2 8XE is split between P88 and PP118 (double PP is NOT a typo)

Don't quote cabinets but rather full addresses when talking to Connecting Cheshire as believe some addresses are to be served via the project in that area.

WA2 8HD is split over two cabinets, PP120 and P88 and it (8% chance your home is in the Cheshire project)

Its got confusing because the cabs have been renumbered and 120 is now known as 210

Thanks Andrew that makes a lot of sense, don't like the sound on 8% chance though frown

Interesting. Still don't understand why DSL checker tools is bringing back so many different cabs e.g. 122, 124, 208, 209 and 210?

What does 'PP' mean? e.g. PP120.

P stands for PCP meaning cabinet.

Why PP no idea, someone pressed P twice once

Just walked to the bottom of my road and BT are busy installing a new cabinet. Looks like the grey ones are being ripped out and being replaced with standard cabs. Then a FTTC cab is going to be installed.

I'm a happy man!
