Re: Who to contact regarding fttc cabinet connection?


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Haha, I know.
Primary connection point isn't terribly descriptive to the un-informed.
Possibly made the mistake of highlighting that the pcp is a passive cabinet for jointing of cables.
In reality probably just didn't explain fully.
Anyway, what's the furthest distance anyone has seen between pcp and associated fttc cabinet?

Only a problem if the goal is 100% coverage and this was in the signed contract...

In reply to a post by Ribble:
Hillside PCP 8


Excellent, thanks for that. By road it's about 1.5 miles to his place from the cabinet and a lot of the cabling will probably be old so it goes a long way towards explaining why fibre isn't possible.

While everyone's sleuthing skills are on such good form I have one final request for a cabinet location which I've not been able to find when I've looked before.

I have another friend who lives right by the Hopwood House Pub and is connected to cabinet 19 which is not fibre enabled and again is connected to the Hillside exchange. Cabinet 20 is about 100m away (marked by the green arrow) and that is fibre enabled.

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=52.37304,-1.956677&...

Can anyone help me locate number 19 please?

Many thanks.

I've been past there loads of times and I've never seen it, I must be going blind. I even walked past it recently to look at which number cabinet 20 was.

Sadly I don't think that one even has a fibre box by it yet but at least we can look for if they do change it.

Very true.
Do we know of anywhere that has signed a 100% contract?

Had you seen any of these presentations, Andrew?

I know it's not exactly laying out the magic solution but interesting that it's on the "agenda".

cheers,
