Thanks for the info Andrew, I have just checked the latest postcode spreadsheet from CDAS and cab 3 is due by July this year, do you know the location of cab 2 (no info about it on CDAS?)

Also what is slightly confusing is there is a green cabinet in my road EX20 3JT however the obviously isn't a PCP as I first thought as I was hoping this was where my line connected to.

In reply to a post by Snowstorm:
Is anyone familiar with the term "New Footprint Exchanges"?
Our local exchange has just had an FTTC upgrade due to BDUK. Quite a number of us here are on the dreaded "Exchange Only Lines" but are shown on our council's website as expected to get Superfast Broadband this year.

Over the last few days the BT wholesale site shows our exchange (EMLNGBU) as:

"Currently closed whilst planned re-engineering work is completed as
per industry briefings for all New Foot Print Exchanges delivered in
13/14 programme "

Do you think this sounds encouraging for us "Exchange Only" types or could the re-engineering work be something totally unrelated to fibre?


Something tells me it's possibly similar to what they were doing to our exchange; they have recently rolled out FTTC (Still running the fibre) and have also plonked a cabinet opposite the exchange (1415 lines I believe) on the other side of the road.

Bearing in mind there are only 2 (To my knowledge) cabinets in the village, I bet it's something to do with FTTC.

Only thing is I don't recall the Checker ever saying it was closed, but then again yours is 3 months ahead of ours as far as planning goes. They will still have to do all the wiring.

On the other hand it could be just them improving/reorganizing kit inside the exchange as the equipment they install for FTTC can be large if you have a lot of cabinets on your exchange (And it's small).

Have you noticed a cabinet(s) popping up near your exchange?

No new cabinets have popped up since the first batch back in October.

Some news from Superfast Northamptonshire though in their latest newsletter. They specifically mention (for the first time) exchange only lines and mention their solution involves building new cabinets as we'd hoped. They mention these are left until later phases as they require more work obviously, but we remain in a zone marked "expected 2014"

I've been trying to figure out where the new cabinet is likely to be, as the street where the exchange is located NN6 7RL (and a few other small streets) have a later planned availability date than ours.

The village telephone exchange used to be (pre 1970's and before my time) just off our street so I wonder if the bulk of the exchange only lines still run under our road and for some technical reason that's where the cabinet has to be rather than at the new site? As you can probably tell I'm not a telecoms expert.

Roadworks.org is showing planned BT activity on land around 100 metres from our local exchange, so it looks like us exchange only lines may benefit soon.

Ours was one of the "New Footprint Exchanges" closed to new WBC connections for around 3 weeks for planned re-engineering works, so maybe that was related.
