Re: FTTC install failure (twice!)


[re: Adsl24] [link to this post]
 
Thanks for taking a look James.

I got the cab 3/5 info second hand from my brother so he might have got things the other way around I guess. Nothing more can be done by me I guess, just have to wait for BT to decide if they can give me it or not.

Time will tell.

Seen a couple of these round here, huge PITA's. The important bit is that at some point someone accurately records which cabinet your line runs through. Once this is correct, then it must be ensured that an FTTC port on the correct cabinet is provisioned.

Looks like James at ADSL24 has beaten me to it.

Interesting that he is saying the opposite of what you understood from the engineer. Did you possibly post it here wrong way round?

Quite possible as I said to James in my reply, was second hand info from brother, very easy to get things wrong way around.

Either way, need to wait for BT to either say they can sort it, or they can't, and so I can't get FTTC. I shall await any kind of reply I guess!

Yes, I had that almost ready to post and got called away, when James had posted and his was the latest post. So I didn't see the intervening ones until afterwards.

I don't think you need to worry about getting it. Just when, is the question. Take a walk and find cab 3.

Not a likely place for a fibre cab smile. Possibly against the brick wall across the road? So road works to put in the link may be the holdup.

That's actually exactly where a FTTC cab popped up a little while back in Feb or so.
Just against that fence by the bus stop. There was a tiny trench dug between cab3 and the FTTC cab which now has a strip of fresh tarmac over. Hopefully it wont be too far behind cab5 (not sure where that is..) in being activated.

On the bright side that's about 50 yards from my house so connection ought to be pretty good.

Edit: Come to think of it that cab has actually been replaced by a much more modern looking one than in that picture.

That will be cab 5, just up the road from cabinet 3.
