Re: FTTC Cab Power Signs!

Oh dear more delays to bear with. No proposed plans to install power to my cab for the next three months according to londonworks.gov.uk....great. mad

I feel your pain.

I'm connected to (and within 50 metres of) PCP 33 (bottom right of picture).

According to LondonWorks there are no scheduled activities in this area before 31/03/2012 (the latest revised date for FTTC).

PCP 28 has apparently (according to the Openreach engineer) been 'LIVE' since 09/2011.

Frustratingly, both PCPs had 'DSLAM' painted on the pavement adjacent to them on the same date in April 2011.

Naively, I hoped that Openreach would just add another 50m to my distance from the cabinet and re-route my telephone line to PCP 28 (I believe the underground ducting has been there since last century!).
Sadly, that doesn't appear to be the case. frown

I'm almost (but not quite) tempted to go for Virgin Media. shocked

Well it looks like power plans have re-appeared on the londonworks website, now planned towards the end of this month. But there is a slight change to the works owner. It has now changed from EDF energy to UK Power Networks. Anyone know if this company is better than EDF?

TIA.

UK Power is a distribution company, in a similar way to Openreach. EDF is a supplier, similar to an ISP

EDF was also respobsible for a large amount of the country's distribution newtwork as well as being a supplier.

And they were pretty poor at the job with almost every job that needed doing being outsourced to small local firms.

Do you happen to know, before they put power to a cab.. would the electrical work

How long after power is installed does it take for a cab to become fully commisioned and RFS? (Showing availble on the BTWholesael checker)
