What options are now open to getting a cabinet connected.
Emailed openreach with following enquiry
I am enquiring as to what is happening in regards to upgrading Cabinet 40, on the Newton Abbot Exchange.
As most of the cabinets on the Newton Abbot exchange seems to be in and live, yet this one is not even installed yet and has had it's estimated activation date put back from Sep 2012 to Dec 2012 and is now showing March 2013, which i don't believe will be met as not installed yet.
Got the following reply back
The rollout is based on the commercial criteria for each cabinet. Initially Newton Abbot cabinet 40 to which your line is connected was included. Unfortunately difficulties over the cabinet site and associated duct issues have led to this being deferred out of the programme.
So is it a case of wait for BDUK funding or what.
Initially was supposed to of been sited in a Conservation area, and got turned down, new site was supposed to of been found but presumably not agreed with LandOwner.
see Planning Application for planning application and Map for GoogleMap showing Cabinet Location, if you rotate through 180 Degrees, then new site supposed to be on Grass Verge by the Blue Peugeot.
Most people on this cabinet get an ADSL2+ speed range of between 1-4.5/5 Mbps, on Fibre estimates range from 17-80 Mbps obviously depending on how far from cabinet they are, so they would love the extra speed. The other two cabinets in my village are done and live and with people connected to them, so would like to try and get the old part of the village upto a decent speed.
