No, it means all lines on it will be connected. Unless they change their mind or meet a problem. It's Phase 5a, whenever that is.

I have a page with some cabinet pics now.

So where is cab 23? That's the one to watch for an FTTC going up nearby.

No idea....the cab on our estate is UXBEB 121, so I take it it's not that one.

Will have a wander around and have a look for one marked 23.

This might be it: possible PCP23

looks a bit tatty - BT have just started re-shelling some of these old GPO cabinets round my way, I hope in preparation for FTTC...

Well 2.67 for me would mean the full 40mb. Current speed is 16mb.

16.36 for me would work out to something approaching 75Mbps (not bad for a product capped to 40Mbps) - I've been saying for a while that BT had massively over-estimated the length of lines served by our cabinet (leading to all sorts of problems - the inability to order 2Mbps fixed speed products, refusal by LLU companies, etc.). Now we have proof!

On the cab is UXB......i think though will check when i get home...

Will take pics tonight of the old cab though the other one is 100% fibre...

Tall green and brand spanking....

Have to wait and see I suppose.


Do you live around the Cowley area? I have friends in Cowley who are still waiting for their cabinets to "go live", and the cabinets (Huawei 288 bigguns) have been sitting there for months. Overall, Uxbridge seems to have excellent coverage. All the way from Hillingdon Circus to Uxbridge road, Vine lane and the town center appear to be well covered by cabinets... But there are some areas that appear to have been neglected, and Uxbridge still only has FTTC "available in some areas". Your PCP might not have any numbers on it - mine didn't.

I'm over in Northolt and there's a massive push to get cabinets installed and hooked up by the end of July from what I can tell. 8 cabinets have been installed this month, and there are roadworks all over the exchange coverage area for the next 2 weeks. My cabinet has only just had the power and fibre connected, and they are filling in the trenches today. Snapped this yesterday:

It's like an invasion of Openreach vans over here!

No the New Denham end near the drive through McDonalds.

The PCP is the link above that someone put up has been changed to the a new PCP and next to it is a Fibre Cab,

The one outside McDonalds on the same road which is opposite my road has also a new Fibre Cab next to it.

The cab next to mine looks battered and nothing seems to be changing. It;s marked UXBEB121 so no idea what this is. Is it a SCP?
