Hi, A new cabinet (modern style) has appeared at the junction with Hulme Hall Road and Elesmere St. Could this be the solution to fibre woes?
Unfortunately no that isn't an FTTC cab. It's a United Utilities kiosk (which contains some kind of water outlet) I think it may have some purpose relating to the major sewer works going on at the moment. I saw a notification on roadworks.org about the installation of this thing, a few weeks ago.
It's only temporary as it's been plonked right in the middle of the old intersection of Hulme Hall Road that used to lead directly onto Chester Road (now a major works site.) This section of road will be re-opened around Dec 2014/Jan 2015 when the major works finish, so the kiosk will need to be removed.
PCP132 at Saint George's Island finally went live on 03/06 (week last Tues), after sitting there cold for 2 years. My FTTC install due tomorrow (11/06), predicted to get the full 80/20.
