Re: Random new cabinet appeared in our village


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
Thank you all for your help and info.

I will keep an eye on the changes and maybe try and grab the openreach team if I see them there.

Hopefully it will be as hoped...some of the houses round here struggle past 2mb/s and I'm lucky to get 7 or 8....anything over 20 would be a real pleasure.

Thanks again

Chris

It is nice that you have a new cabinet.

I am in a similar position to you in that I am 3300m from the nearest FTTC cabinet but there are only seven properties here so we are not likely to get an infill.

Enjoy your new speed, and hopefully soon too.

The annoying bit from my point of view is that I approached openreach 6 months+ ago and asked them to do exactly what they seem to be doing and they refused to even give me a quote.

Good luck with your effort...depressingly I think the smaller communities will always struggle.

I don't think the OP has any existing FTTC service available so there won't be a live to live migration delay.

I suspect plans had existed for a long time but funding may have been issue. I guess money came from somewhere.

witchunt - you are probably correct. I know where the money came from, a big building firm want to use our village hall as an office for a year - they need decent broadband. I'm just annoyed that when I asked for quotes and information as part of a community broadband group I didn't get told it was potentially already on the cards....would have saved a lot of effort..wink

We have FTTC, but from cabinet P3 which is almost 1.5km away on very old copper.and so although I'm paying for Superfast fibre I can't get 10mb/s
