Re: Open Reach are busy!


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
The markings on the pavement up to our telegraph pole are still there since last June.

However, I'm on FTTC since end September, so the markings were a red herring. A friend of mine, also on Hawarden exchange, also had BT ducts all marked up; however in his case this is because Dee Valley Water are anxious not to damage them as they renew water mains there.

Cheers!

Loads of vans buzzing around this week and lines being sprayed on the pavement up to our telegraph pole. Also engineer in our cabinet this morning. Could FTTC be coming?
They've been working on Saturdays around me. I hope that's not a sign of a desperate struggle to meet the March deadline :-/

Just have to keep an eye on the cab, once the fibre twin appears is a case of waiting for it all to be connected. Power usually is the longest wait, as its seperate contractors.


Twin? I thought they replaced the old cabinet and put everything inside the new one? Oh dear there are going to be some very unhappy people around if they got two cabinets outside their houses. I can see there are going to be uproar in some places and what happens if the space is limited, do that mean no fibre?

Yes, a twin, but much larger generally.. It will be sited within 100 metres of the PCP, so where space is an issue it could be moved across the road, for example.

Oh dear I can see a few people not being happy with a big box stuck outside their house.

Possibly, a local exchange near to me has been enabled but has a few more cabs planned under 9b will have a look to see the progress on them.
