Re: Why do BT fibre only certain cabs?

Oh dear! Congratulations, now you get to have the 5-6 month wait whilst the cab goes live.

What's you approximate distance to the cab following the roads?

Hope they aren't nicking our one back to populate your area!

the work is being done exactly where P27... my cabinet is located, unless they've decided to do VM a favour and upgrade their cabinet.

If £500m has been handed to BT already for its FTTC roll-out, then care to show us the evidence?

Also as Openreach is rolling out in areas that do NOT have market failure, this would breach EU law on state assistance I am very sure of.

Could also be used for going back into an area to do cabinets or customers missed the first time I guess.

Cab was installed in October last year, initial RFS was Dec-12, this fell back to Mar-12.

There was a sudden flurry of activity mid-Jan, then the cab wentlive beginnning of Feb, order went in as soon as, occupying port1. I'm a little over 400m from the cab and the speedtest shows a healthy ping and speed from a Belgian server.

just to update you all, they've now started on the rest of the cabinets, even an old metal one, as i've said before mine is slated for the 3rd so they might with luck do it tomorrow.

Walked by today, they've cemented the hole where the cab is due to sit, and secured a pre drilled a floor into the concrete.
