Yep I'm on Cab 135 as well. I do a lot of work from home so often see Openreach vans buzzing around outside during the day, sometimes I see them working on cab 135 itself. The engineer I spoke to a couple of days ago said they're just finishing off the infrastructure, but seemed confident it'd be operational within "2-3 months".

All a bit annoying when a few hundred metres down the road everyone has access to FTTC.
My main worry is that I know the ducting from my nearest BT manifold to my house is blocked due to a garage conversion so they can't just blow the fibre through which will no doubt mean more delays for me anyway.
Yeah, tell me about it, that poster on the cab by Liffey Rise taunting me on my way home every day "Fibre broadband is available here!"... Yeah, no.
3.5 Meg you say? Well. That is something to look forward to when my BE connection goes live on Monday... slower than the portable hotspot I'm using through my phone's 3G at the moment then!
Well, 2-3 months, sounds promising. Thankfully there's nothing between the cab and my house that should cause any problems as far as I can see - pretty close to it tbh. Sounds like we'll potentially be in for a nice Christmas present. I'll keep my fingers crossed for us!

BT / Openreach - You've finally done well. Very well indeed.
