Need a photo really. that is a Cabinet Cross Connection 2. With new doors as the old ones have probably fallen off on some poor engineer's foot some time ago.

The cabinet and it does have a 240v warning label attached so is probably powered or intended to be.

Certainly looks like FTTC cabinet to me... I can't see any other reason for installing one there. Hard to determine the size from foto, but it does look very similar to a BT FTTC cab that I'd be connected to if I chose to make the switch. That also has a big warning 240v sticker on it. So it looks like a winner.

MHC has found the FTTC cabinet, but the picture the OP linked to on my site definitely isn't that one.

I'll confirm it is definitely the one the OP was referring to. Use the original http://goo.gl/rY0yd for a location and then use the co-ordinates from my image and they are very close! The fence behind (in my image) is fairly new - and http://g.co/maps/5kvb8 shows the same trees!

A friend mentioned that OR had been in the area recently and is hoping that he may get something faster than dial-up!

I wasn't doubting you. But the OP needs an eye test in that case tongue.

Just asked the Openreach guy sat in a van by it eating his lunch. It's Fibre. 2 - 3 months for activation he thought.

RESULT!

Yup - I do... in fairness when i first posted it was from memory and the thing was obscured by various Health & Safety barriers. Had intended on replacing my observation with a photo, but the one I got on Friday "missed".
