Re: Query re Openreach FTTC Modem - One for Zarjaz?


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
I live on Overlea Drive CH5 3HS (CH5 3HR being the other side of the road).

The cabinet which I have been told that I am on is on Braeside Avenue (CH5 3HW) at its junction with Fieldside, with its associated FTTC on Fieldside (CH5 3JB).

The only other cabinet which could possibly serve my house is at the Junction of Park Avenue (CH5 3HY) and Gladstone Way A550. The route of the fibre and other main Openreach cables is along the A550.

Both these cabs are on the OR spreadsheet and would appear that 100% of lines could have FTTC service.

My query is why OR have been marking up on the pavements the routes of existing cable ducts. This area is virtually 100% connected to OR pairs, mostly overhead to the pole, thence underground.

So, the only reasons I can think of for marking up existing cable ducts are, a) existing old aluminium cable to be replaced with copper; a new cabinet seeing that some properties would be 700 metres from either of the other two; c) FTTP although that not listed on the OR spreadsheet. Otherwise seems a waste of effort.

Cheers!

Well I don't know cabinet locations, but cabinets 2 and 15 cover 100% of the lines for that post code. No FTTP anywhere, just FTTC.

But as has been noted, that's the April spreadsheet and there is a later one.

Are you sure putting your street name and postcode into a public forum (especially given your name is listed in your profile) is a good idea?

I did consider that before I did, however since my name is already known and I have previously stated that I am a County Councillor, then since more detail is readily available my post code is the least of my worries, as you can see on Google.

I am more concerned with buying over the telephone, who knows what details are noted down. Indeed, my wife on one occasion had one of her plastic cards "used" even though she had only used it twice, in person, locally. (LTSB routinely change card numbers on each renewal).

Cheers!

Originally I had 27.7Mbit from the tester the engineer had so I've gradually been bleeding away megabits over the last year and a bit. Every 0.5% helps

Doubt anyone on this forum is likely to care too much.

.. more likely that some other utilities contractors are going to be digging up round your way, so have called in the Plant Protection Officer to mark up where the lines go, before they horse through them whilst digging.

As Zar has said. Someone is going to be digging up the road and has had plant marked up in order to avoid cutting anything expensive.
