Cabs have numbers on them. But FTTP will probably be completely underground, unlike FTTC where a fibre cabinet is installed near to the existing phone one.

We visit Helston once or twice a year - usually staying in Porthleven. Relatives in Helston smile.

In reply to a post by Matt182:
I would not get your hopes up, that spread sheet is very inaccurate for Cornwall. We was down for FTTP with no due date when it was updated in September time, then when I checked the wholesale checker around December it said it was going live the very next day but with FTTC.

It seems that we are left in the dark until the very last moment, not sure if OR know them self what's going where tongue


It seems like BT use "FTTP" to mean "parts of the exchange area are getting it, everyone else is getting FTTC".

My exchange is listed as FTTP. There is precisely one cabinet with any form of upgrade at the moment - the one for the road I live in (FTTC). No one else in the village can get anything, FTTC or P. FTTP is planned for the exchange-only lines and for the new housing estates according to the spreadsheet which seems fairly logical.

The nearby town is correctly listed as "FTTC/P". 99% of the town is upgraded to FTTC, with a few places on FTTP.

(this is also in Cornwall).

Hi your postcode is split between exchange only lines and a single cab, pcp 23 where only 3% of the lines go to and it is currently not planned for FTTC.

96% of the lines of the postcode TR138PS are exchange only lines, these cannot recieve FTTC as they have no cabinet.

Your Father in law postcode TR138PQ is served by 2 cabs that are both enable for FTTC, 27% of the postoce lines go to cab 5 and 72% go to cab 8.

Their is however a planned upgrade for exchange only lines in Cornwall by BT, we are still waiting to see what this will be.
