Woohoo got an answer back from OpenReach:-
I can advise that the cab in question, cab 9 on the Canterbury exchange, is due to complete by February 2013. There are delays unfortunately that have been caused as traffic management and road closures have been required to carry out the work needed to ready the cab for fibre broadband.
Well that saves me listening to the cab to see if its actually working and looking a bit weird on a public road (or weirder than normal!)
So it takes a while for them to respond about 9 or 10 working days, but they seem to eventually.
Id like to say a massive thanks to Ronski for all his hard work locating the cabinet!
Roll on Feb.
Sky max - still no fibre 18 months after original go live..
