The cast iron ones near me have not been reshelled and FTTC has been rolled out, mine is scheduled for the morning of Friday 23rd. That said, the original cast iron cabinet 10 minutes walk away was reshelled a couple of months back.
Seeing "mine" open the other week, was shocked to see just a jumble of wires and gel crimps, rather than neat rows of termination strips that I have seen elsewhere.
Makes me wonder how the OR engineer will locate my pair in that mess? Also, since 9 years back they found a different pair to improve a noisy line, I hope their records are up to date, since there is a posibility that I may be on the other cabinet which serves my postcode...
I intend to post how it goes on Friday afternoon.
