Does Openreach try to put fibre through ducts in a town in one go, or can it be spread over several months? I ask as a colleague noticed what looked like OR with a large drum of fibre 6 months ago in the centre of Cheltenham, then more recently closer to his home. Other than that I've not seen any evidence of it. Cheltenham is still down for December, and the last week has seen 4 FTTC cabs installed with 1 km of where I live, so they're cracking on with it. I say four, but one looks to be a 'sleeving' job over the old cab (plus some other grey ducting sticking out of the ground, and there are no vents. This cab is FTTC only. Does this mean a separate FTTC cab should still appear?
My cab is down for FTTP, so not sure if I'll see much activity locally (though not sure if the cab is big enough).
