Could these aggregation nodes be disguised as large black bollards (looking similar to this
) which stand up on pathways near ducting?
The reason I ask is we've had FTTC for a couple of years now but the other end of the estate has only just had its cab installed.
At pretty much exactly the same time there appeared a large black bollard where the outer casing slips off (I saw a contractor working on it - definitely looked like a cable/fibre junction point of some kind - it's a main road so I couldn't easily slow down to take a better look).
It stands around 750mm to 1m high.
There are no other developments going on in the area (apart from a long way off planned housing estate). There are no commercial buildings nearby, the school already has its fibre connection, we have no cable TV in the area and the road (albeit a busy one) doesn't really go anywhere - it's just a spine/access road linking around 1,000 homes to two major A roads going in/out of town.
There aren't any others around town (and the rest of the town has had FTTC for a couple of years - this was just the last cab to be installed - also it's the most recent voice cab to be installed in town - I'd just figured it was so new it hadn't made it onto whichever outdated list BT use to work out where to stick fibre cabs).
Can't think what it could have been (other than one of these famed aggregation nodes).
BTW; it's around 1.5 miles from the exchange.
