Change Cabinet

[link to this post]

Does anyone know if changing what cabinet I'm connected to is possible.
I currently get about 1.75Mb/s through ADSL2. My exchange (St Albans) has been FTTC enabled for a while now but my cab hasn't been enabled and dosn't have a date. There are two cabs that have been enabled that my line must pass by. See map attached. I'm located where the A marker is, my cab is the one at the top left the other two orange dots are FTTC enabled cabs.

Cab Map

Who would I contact to ask for a move (if one is possible) assuming its not cost prohitive, I wouldn't mind ordering a new line assuming I could be assured that it would be connected to an upgraded cab.

I can't get Virgin Media as they end their service 400m up the road!

Any thoughts.

Thanks in advance

I wonder if the two cabs came later for infill development and cab 40 has a lot of longer lines. Will try to find that dataset - what's your postcode ?

You could try emailing Openreach, or a better bet may be to get an ISP like AAISP, IDNet, Zen or similar to take up the case on your behalf.

I think you may be on cabinet 44 ?


MaxDSL - goes as fast as it can and doesn't read the line checker first.

Are your kids pirates ? Limewire, Bearshare, Kazaa, BitTorrent, eMule are all tools of the trade.
