Cwmbran Fibre Superfast Cymru Cwmbran


[link to this post]
 
Over the last few weeks in Cwmbran the openreach contractors have been pulling fibre and unblocking ducts very quick to the cabs that where not done under the commercial roll out a few days ago they pull a cable to my local cab 17 Llanyravon Cwmbran now today I noticed they have spray painted in yellow where the fibre cab is going to go any one know how long this takes from the time it is spray painted on the floor to going active ,

In cwmbran they are not hanging around a contracter told me if a duck is block they aim to get it unblocked with 24 hours,

Might be a month might be two years. That is the range, from cab being stood average is probably around 10 weeks

Usually only on the checker once live.

Project are the people to give updates.

Old street cabinets are often upgraded to make more space for handling the extra copper link cable.

March 2015 is this date they gave for all the cabs in Torfaen to go live by,

Also speaking of bleanavon the mobile operator THREE last week did work on the base station that covers that town it will soon have Three 4G aswell within the next few weeks the base stations in cwmbran where upgraded the week before

It depends,

My parents had one put in in their place over in England and it was a month from start to finish and it went live last week with the RFS date still sat at 31/12

SO once testing is done they are obviously keen to get the money back for it
