Hunslet activation/ cabinet information please


[link to this post]
 
Hi.

I have seen some very helpful people on here that seem to know a bit about the fibre roll out, or know where to look for the information smile.

Hunslet exchange was listed in the last list as to be activated in 2012. Is there a way of finding out when the exchange is likely to go live? There were rumours of it being February, but as it is now almost the end of March..... If so, would someone also be kind enough to find out cabinet information for LS10 4SU? The number 66 is stencilled on the cabinet outside. I would suspect we are not high priority for the upgrade frown.

Thank you.

Ah, just seen that more new exchanges have been listed today and Hunslet is now listed as "Coming Soon" on the checker, in September. A few more months to wait yet then.

Well you are right about the cabinet, all lines in your postcode are on 66. However, not surprisingly given the latest announcement, there is no other info in the December spreadsheet sorry.

Best to keep an eye out for markings on the pavements.

Cabinet information please- exchange live in September.


[re: Discus] [link to this post]
 
Local cabinets are being installed now. The Leeds street works site isn't showing any work to be carried out at our end of the road, athough the cabinet the other end was installed last week.

Can anyone with an updated sheet see if cabinet 66 on the Hunslet exchange (MYHLT) for the LS10 4SU postcode is on the future upgrade list please, as my requests elsewhere are falling on deaf ears?

Thanks

Yes, I had hoped it was one of those nice friendly ISPs that would be able to check for me smile. Maybe it's because I continued on my old thread instead of starting a new one..

Tried that checker, Samknows, BT Products & Services and Sky. All tell me I have a rubbish line and I have to "like it or lump it"

Don't forget Virgin is similar to FTTC, their fibre stops in the street and they use coax cabling.
(also have a read of the virgin forum on here before thinking of signing up - some areas are heavily congested)

Not that it matters much to me now, but for fellow cabinet 66'ers, I have heard from BT that the cabinet is due to be enabled in December 2012, but could be subject to indefinite delay!! (So will it or won't it??)

For anyone that is on cabinet 20 at the other end of the road, and was looking forward to fibre (cabinet installation was abandoned in June), there were complaints about the cabinet, hence the work was cancelled. Say thanks to the nimbys wink

They started digging up the street for the cabinet installation back in June as I was watching them. Next day the holes were filled in and the workmen gone, and no new cabinet. The street works referred to in my previous post show as the installation being abandoned and BT told me it was on hold indefinitely, hence our cabinet also being placed on the potential list for an indefinite delay. Apparently it only takes one complaint for the work to stop, then presumably OR go away and think about what to do next.

I would not class it as similar. THe copper BT twisted pais has very poor bansdwidth and is very subcect to noise. Coaxial cable that is feeding only one property has more than enough bandwith to meet any possible needs at least for the next 10 years. Coaxial also has much better noise immunity

And the bandwidth limits of DOCSIS 2 and DOCSIS 3 that Virgin Media are constantly fighting with causing local congestion issues rather than at the data centre (viz, three student houses in a coax segment all on 100mbps service can essentially kill the service for everyone else).

You've forgotten its shared around as many as 500 homes per coax segment. If it was point to point then coax would be vastly better. The DSL services are point to point (home to exchange) before the sharing really goes on.

Twenty years ago, Ethernet came at 10Mbps in 2 flavours - one on twisted pair, and one on coax.

Nowadays we see ethernet at gigabit speeds on twisted pair only, and the coax variant has died a death.

While I agree with you that Coax does indeed have better noise immunity, there must be something else in the equation that means twisted pair has won *that* race.

The two main reasons are:

1. Twisted pair ethernet cable is considerably cheaper than RG58 coax that is used with thin-wire ethernet.
2. Coax cable is only good up to about 350Mbps.

Hi there

Can someone advise me if LS10 3BS is showing up as when we will get upgraded. Currently with Sky and get about 5mb but sky have just recently put prices up so thinking of moving to orange as can get out of the contract.

Used an old netgear router with cracked firmware so could adjust the SNR level, managed to get about 6mb/s perfectly but overnight the connection slowed back to the sync speed that the Sagem always synced at.

Wondering when will get fibre in my area.

Hi,

I live in the same area, supplied by either cabinet P19 or P20. The availability checker say's FTTC is not available.

There's a new green box next to P20 so I assume this cab has been upgraded. P19 does not appear to have been upgraded yet and is not listed as having a delivery phase according to http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php which I understand is using data from over 12 months ago.

I've emailed Openreach and got an out of office reply.

Does anyone have any up-to date information on either of these cabs? I'd hate to be stuck on 2 megs forever...

Or can anyone confirm that they have working FTTC on cab P20? Which would point to me being served by P19 and in for a long wait!

Thank you,
Andy.

Andy,

Cab 20 is live:

For Address STREET SIDE DSLAM CAB NMBQUZ, ACRE ROAD, LEEDS, LS10 4EW on Exchange HUNSLET

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 80 Mbps and upstream line speed of 20 Mbps.

However I also have good news - cabinet 19 is being upgraded as part of the infill programme and should be ready by March 2013, although the availability checker hasn't been updated yet.

STREET SIDE DSLAM CAB NAAQTF, MIDDLETON PARK AVENUE, LEEDS, LS10 4HY

This is phase 10b, so don't worry, coming soon!

Hi Andy,

I'm actually Carl from the Fibre For Middleton campaign, you may have mailed us at some point!

They did the easiest / most profitable ones first, then the criteria changed to allow the not so low hanging fruit to be done.

The area I've been campaigning for had just one cabinet out of 9 done in the first wave, there are another 3 scheduled for this March 2013 infill.

Hi,

Don't suppose anyone has any information on when cabinet 62 will be updated?

62 isn't in the plans. I'm waiting for more information from Openreach on what is required to change this.

Happy days!

Fibre cabinet for cab 19 installed outside 77 Throstle Lane (very, very close to their wall, not sure they're so happy..) and according to http://outsizefiles.leeds.gov.uk/streetworks/SymSWRD... it might get power on the 11th of Feb.

You think that's likely? I'll be happy either way for the massive speed increase.

Hi there

Please could someone assist. LS10 3BS is apparently served by cabinet P34. This is the Parnaby Road area we get about 3/5mb if we are lucky at the moment. Last year BT said they were not planning on investing/upgrading our area and Virgin have no plans to invest in cable for us.

The http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php website says that FTTC, but not yet available.

We are starting to feel that the only way we will get an increase and fibre is through the http://www.superfastwestyorkshire.co.uk/ scheme.

Can anyone look into this for me not sure where to go really. When I check the bt wholesale website it says they are taking orders on my exchange? Confused much.

Kind Regards
Richard.

Looks as if cabinet was on the old lists but may have been dropped on further planning eg power costs too high for commercial roll-out

The openreach nga enquiries email address is a good start point

The map layout is too small to see it. Why they not enlarge it?
