It's the only cab out of 8 in my immediate neighbourhood that hasn't got an fttc twin,

Maybe it's slaved from a neighbouring cabinet.
I think most people are assuming when OR upgrade a cabinet to have FTTC capability, the fibre (and accompanying vDSL equipment) will go all the way to every cabinet.
I wouldn't be surprised, especially on lightly loaded cabinets, to see OR locate the vDSL equipment at another cabinet just down the road.

What you have (certainly the shell, anyway) is a bog standard cab (our cabinet, just round the corner, has looked like yours since it was installed about 10 years ago).


If I've read this properly I think it could be a valid point?

Are you saying 1 FTTC cabinet may serve 2 conventional cabs directly?

or are you saying cab41 may link through another cab (which is FTTC served)?

Although both are technically feasible, not sure if the planners are allowed to use either as a solution. Any planners on this forum?

If it's any use, the FTTC cab CAN be upto a 100m from its copper cab, but preferably within a few metres, as seems to be the norm.

I suspect the cabinet @ 182 Slater La is not an Openreach cabinet
I thought we might have to disagree on that but I've now taken another look from the opposite angle. I agree, the cabinet's profile does now suggest to me that it is not OpenReach plant -- what did confuse me, initially, was the jointing chambers in the pavement and that cabinet is to the east of St James' church, just as the "Slater 2" legend on the OS map shows, along with Embraer's original statement: "Image One shows the Cab locations, Slater 2 being cab41".

Being curious, I'm now going to have to continue to the east and see what is present at the point marked "Slater 1".

I agree with Ribble. The cab at 182 is not an Openreach cab. It's a cable cab.

Agreed. I now also share that opinion. laugh

Having had a look at "Slater 1", outside approx. 106 Slater Lane, looking S, it too is identifiable as a cable cabinet. So that OS map, which I was originally relying on, turns out to be not much help! tongue

Assuming that the cable is run in Embraer's road, of course. wink

I've just spent the last 14 minutes making a visual tour of the area approximate to the "arrow" and yes, you are right. It is a relatively new development and there is no sign of cable anywhere in that area.

No cable, would have been nice 10years ago, then we wouldn't be having this discussion

If god had meant man to fly he would have given him more understanding bank managers!

3 Macs, 1 Netgear 834GT with DGTeam firmware, 1 Apple Timecapsule. Bye Bye AOHell, Hello O2, Bye Bye O2 once FTTC arrives on my exchange

It's looking more and more likely that this FTTC cab for cab 41 is planned but not yet installed.

Apparently these things can be commissioned within days. So keep your ears open for the roar of stihl saws and the pounding of pavement breakers and there's a good chance they'll be "planting" it smile

(I am of course assuming you can't directly see the cab from where you live! Otherwise just look out your window!)
