how many street cabinets are there in the UK


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Need to do a presentation and was wondering how many street cabinets there were. I know there are about five and half thousand telephone exchanges but how does this equate to the amount of green cabinets there are?

Approximate is fine.

And thanks in advance.

Around 94,000 and the number is growing as exchange only cabinets gain fibre cabinets and new green cabinets.

Openreach, or Openreach plus Virgin Media Cable? Just telecoms or what - e.g. traffic light controllers?

In the case of Openreach, the number of phone cabinets, or the number of FTTC cabinets attached to them, or the sum of the two? A lot of phone cabinets don't have FTTC partners.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Openreach was the scope of the question, sorry I did not make that clear.

Interesting though, what is the amount if you include non-OR presence?

Additionally, thanks for the response

Are you expecting the response to include the cabinets installed to provide FTTC?

No, just the sum of cabinets. I am fine with the figure of 94k for now, the point is that there are 94k exchanges and only 25k or so engineers as far as the presentation is concerned.


I believe FTTC is about 65%, by the way

And if I remember correctly, there are about 25,000 vehicles - not sure whether that is OR only or BT total.
