How Long to......Connect DSLAM

Does anyone know the APPROXIMATE time it takes BT to connect a DSLAM up.

 

I am on an EO line. Frour grren cabinets have been put in to my local Exchange (Aberdeen West). BT have connected up the lines to the smaller cabinet. BT have connected power to the 2 DSLAM cabinets. How long do you think to hook it all up now the major investment is out of the way and planning and utilities are behind us?

 

Thank you!

Re: How Long to......Connect DSLAM

It is the same answer as I gave you in message two of your original thread.

 It can take many months to commission a cabinet. There is no set time scale and Openreach are unlikely to tell you.

Very helpful, thanks. I doubt it will take months now all the equipment is purchased, installed and all planning done and utilities connected. Its too much sunk capital to leave it for "months". I would say Jan 2015. Lets see.

Re: How Long to......Connect DSLAM

i spoke to some of the workers at the Exchange who are installing the DSLAMs. They are to connect EO lines. The cabinets are equipped have electricity and the EO lines are being moved across. So I expect these new cabinets at Aberdeen West will spring into action quite soon....

If so, thank you BT.

Re: How Long to......Connect DSLAM

the cabs will then need tested - a good clue to availability is when you can hear the fans working in the cabs

No noise yet from the two DSLAMs outside Aberdeen West......AB15 7SG still waiting to get connected. Hopefully goodbye to Exchange Only lines. Thank you Openreach, if it ever happens.....

Re: How Long to......Connect DSLAM

Still no noice from the DSALMs just workment from the contracted teleco company working long hours doing something. Loads of cable, fibre, cable and more cable.

 

Hopefully in the next month or two it will be ready. Moderator - any news on DSLAMs for AB15 7SG

 

Thank you Openreach and BT

Re: How Long to......Connect DSLAM

the mods will no more information on the cabinet than you get from using the checker as it is openreach who are responsible for install and activation
