The cabinet I am connected to isn't in an ideal position and therefore is being moved with civil works now under way. We are talking about the original cabinet and not its FTTC twin which went live last October. To me this is some job and I would be most surprised if subscriber outages were only of a minimum duration. So what outage period can be expected? Are we likely to be notified when it would happen?
The distance between the old and new cabinet to its FTTC twin is an insignificant change of distance so my expectations are not to see any change in broadband speed when the job is finished. True or false expectations?
Surprisingly the replacement cabinet is very much larger than the original one. Why would that be? This June 2009 picture http://tinyurl.com/q7gp5q9
shows what was, I believe, the former post office and telephone exchange but is now a private dwelling. It has in its front garden the existing cabinet and three manholes containing telephone caballing. I guess the owner has demanded that this plant is removed. Its FTTC twin was placed outside against the fence.
