I think the duct work has already been done a few weeks back as they were on roadworks.org re-instating the pavement where duct clearance had taken place. Also there is another cabinet which is further in the village which is already terminated. I would imagine any fibre would take the same route.

If it has been commissioned successfully then usually a few days but maybe longer. If it has not reached that stage then it's back to the waiting game. The commissioning stage is often when the high security lock is fitted , black or silver.

I don't want to depress you, I live in central London and we were told our cabinet would go live in sept 1012 in fact this did not happen until the beginning of December 2016. A whole raft of excuses were made about the power at the exchange, then at the cabinet etc. The most annoying thing is that the cabinet directly opposite my premises has had fibre since the original date, but because my line is connected to an older cabinet further down the road fibre was not available to me.

Ive been and had a look. There doesn't appear to be a high security lock on it, they have filled in the trench from the old cabinet about 26m away. All I can see on the cabinet is four locks with triangular keys by the looks and one bar in the middle that looks like it could contain a lock in the future but looks like the cab. isn't populated yet.

This is what is fitted except it hasn't got the silver bit on the bar on the front. It is all green bar.

All the ones I've seen around Greater Manchester are just plain green as well. Always have been.

Short of breaking in I don't know if there is anything in there connected or not. They have covered the trench to the old cab so I would guess the interconnects between the two cabs are in place and roadworks.org said for power engineer to connect and clear site. Probably about the 3rd time this particular site has had the road/pavement up. Checked my number on Where and when site but still says build stage.
