New roadworks been scheduled outside my road, possibly a new cabinet

I was just browsing on the Roadworks website when I came across a scheduled job due to start in a few days by BT.

I did a little more digging and I found this about this new PCP 130:

I already have FTTC- connected to PCP49 from Slough, albeit at the absolute minimum speed as I’m very far away from my current cabinet, let alone the Slough Main exchange, but I wanted to know whether this is a replacement cabinet for a more faster connection for me and my fellow neighbours? Or just any information in general about this new PCP? 

I have also learned that there is a scheme called Connected Counties for Bucks and Herts although I can’t get much information from them.

Looks like it’s one of the new All in One Copper/DSL Cabinets.

Sounds like what I have just had, old cab a mile away, very slow FTTP @ 8 meg, new cab 400 yds away, speed 51 meg, brilliant!

Only don't expect anything to happen quickly after the cab is installed

1) Cab installed

2) Old copper looped into cab, fttp still from old cab

3) Fibre pulled through

4) LIne cross-over eventually  completed ten months after cab was installed

FTTP doesn’t route through DSLAMS.

It’s a dedicated Fibre Line from the Exchange Head End to a Splitter Node, which splits between 16 or 32 ways then a single Fibre from there directly to your house.

Been trying to contact BT, Openreach and Sky about what this means for my line and if I can migrate to it to get a faster speed. Sky said that I should get a response from them soon as they have to ask Openreach on my behalf.

Also, just saw the new cabinet being installed today as I drove past.

By all means carry on here there and everywhere if that keeps you happy. Neither BT, Sky nor any other ISP can request your line is migrated to a different cabinet.

If Openreach have planned for your line to be be migrated it will happen, there is nothing  you or anyone else can do to speed up the process. Expect it to take months  as it is not an easy process.

You can't request being moved to it. Either Openreach will move your line as part of a planned network re-arrangement or not.

@jevanbh1

Why not post on the Sky forum as they are your ISP, and see what replies you get there?

This forum has nothing to do with Openreach, and their plans.
