Openreach have been putting in tons of cabinets into Oakham recently - even putting cabinets in places that never had them before.
Oakham Telephone Exchange Cab
And I spotted this one tonight, outside the telephone exchange. Now I live about on Dean Street, which is behind where I've taken the photo from, and my telephone line length is 186m - so it's an E/O line.
Is it likely my line will go into that cabinet so I'll be able to get fibre at some stage? As I say, my line is only 186m long to the exchange itself, so I assume I'll get near the top end of 80mbit (I get 22mbit as it is on ADSL2+).
The download speed is not that much of an issue; it's the measly 0.83mbit upload speed I get which is seriously bad.
