Re: Blantyre Exchange 2013 help me locate cab?


[re: ccxo] [link to this post]
 
You're absolutely right. I've been scoping these streets for a few months now. That original BT cabinet is pretty camouflaged and looks quite old. Mistook it for something else.

Cheers!

I actually live down in Brankholm and the street we are in doesnt get access to Virgin as it's a new build. I did ask but they said it wasn't going to be cost effective.

Your speed of 5.2mbit is pretty good for the distance between you and the exchange.

Next cabinet I've seen due for installation is at corner of hillhouse road and fleming way - cabinet 35.

Lastly, checked your postcode on BT DSL checker. Looks like you'll get a decent speed at 63.5mbit smile

WBC FTTC Up to 63.5 Up to 20 -- 31-Mar-14
Fibre Multicast -- -- -- 31-Mar-14

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Heh, I wonder who put the 230V warning sticker on the fence? I know it doesn't really matter, and I'm nitpicking, but surely it HAS to be on the cab? Maybe it's just blu-tacked to the wooden fence temporarily, I dunno. Why didn't the OR person just stick it straight on to the cabinet? The cabinet might not be properly in place, but the sticker only goes in one place and will move with the cabinet.

Yes I'm a touch neurotic, but... someone ring Claims Direct or whoever, claiming to have been shocked by that cab, citing the photo as the improper placement of a warning sticker wink

The information for your approximate speed was previously on the dsl checker, but it seems BT have removed it now.
