I noticed recently that G.fast pods where appearing on cabinets for the Prudhoe exchange (my mothers). Anyway I was visiting at Easter so took the opportunity this time to visit all the cabinets after mapping them out using CodeLook and Streetview though to be honest I knew all but one of the locations anyway from growing up there.
Anyway interestingly it shows up that cabinet 12 in the neighbouring village of Ovington which according to CodeLook, was enabled BDUK Northumberland Phase 13a in June 2015 has spouted a Nokia G.fast pod. Interesting that a cabinet that BT/Openreach claimed previously was commercially unviable for VDSL now gets a commercial G.fast pod. My view it is more evidence that BT/Openreach are full of it when it comes to anything to do with any broadband technology being commercially viable. Note I would have said cabinet 12 was a classic case of one where uptake was going to be high. Wealthy area with poor ADSL speeds due to distance from exchange equaling high VDSL take up. I hope Northumberland demand a full refund of money on that cabinet.
My search has also thrown up some errors in the Openreach checker. Properties at the bottom end of Moor Road right next to cabinet 2 at 409751E,562604N are allegedly connected to cabinet 7 which is located at the exchange (which I am almost certain is an EO breakout because it never used to exist) at 409598E,563100N, Using the address checker 1 Moor Road NE42 5LH allegedly gets a 80/79,20/19 on both clean and impacted from cabinet 7, not a cat in hell's chance of that, but if it was cabinet 2 then entirely believable. Anyone know how you report such errors?
