Re: Fibre upgrade for Exchange only lines (EANAR)

Go to solution

An update regarding OpenReach in London. Not good news I'm afraid:

 

- BT OpenReach could install a small cabinet in the basement of our building (80 flats) but want £15k !

- Alternatively tehy could do this in the exchange but it's not a priority, so expect over 18 months' wait (IF it happens)

- Contacted Ofcom who informed me that it's not part of OpenReach's legal obligation therefore they couldn't help...

 

Anyone has other news?

They could not install a cabinet inside the exchange, it has to be outside. OFCOM rules.

I was under the impression this had been superseded... Anyway, they could always install a Combined PCP & FTTC Cabinet on my street (I'm 100 yards from the exchange and I can see a green box from my window....) Example on this page:

Still don't know what it would take to nudge OpenReach

I ran a search for "Combined PCP & FTTC Cabinet" and this was the only result.

Has anyone got any experience of having an exchange only line being moved to one of these cabinets please ?

The problem with that, is its only of benefit to those living near the exchange. If you are on a long EO line, with a low speed, its not going to help.

Thanks for the reply imjolly.  My query was prompted by the "Combined PCP & FTTC Cabinet", installed on the outskirts of the village, due to go live next month.  This will reduce the length of the copper and was wondering what speed improvements other have seen.

I'm also slightly curious as to how the existing lines will be connected to it ?

are you sure you will get connected to new cabinet as openreach do not normally re-route existing conenctions

 

is this new cabinet just outside the exchange?

I hope so. Quote "This will involve connecting premises to a new all in one (fibre combined with copper) cabinet to be installed in the village."

 

is this new cabinet just outside the exchange? No, the cabinet is in place and located at the north end of the village.

would have clarified if you had posted that initially

 

there is no way you can tell your possible connection spee until actually connected  this graph give some idea depending on line length from cabinet  original.png
