Cabinet upgrade to fibre

Hello

Does anyone know when cabinet 68 of from the sky port exchange will be upgraded to fibre? I have asked BT and Openreach numerous times about this, and I am still getting the same response with ‘We are exploring solutions and don’t have a plan for your area yet’. When will it be available? I live literally 5 minutes away from the exchange

Re: Cabinet upgrade to fibre

Only openreach will have that information and you need to keep checking with openreach. At present all I see is your cabinet does not have fibre like many others on your exchange

Thanks,

I have asked them many times for nearly a year now, yet nobody seems to know the answer. The exchange is fibre enabled. So why aren’t they rolling it out to the cabinets?

It’s not cost effective putting DSLAMS in there due to cost issues with getting Power to them.

The areas planned for FTTP instead.

Hello Starwire 2000,

Thank you for your response

Could you please clarify what the term DSLAMS means? And if the area is planned for FTTP, do you know when this will be happening?

The DSLAM is the equipment that provides broadband service.

Only openreach know if and when any cabinet will be upgraded

Re: Cabinet upgrade to fibre

As @Starwire2000 pointed out, your cabinet is not scheduled for upgrade to fibre, FTTP is planned instead. Only Openreach will know the timescales for that.

Re: Cabinet upgrade to fibre

imjolly I have asked them numerous times, like I said in my previous post, but nobody seems to want to listen to what the customers want. Yet they can put this in the remote parts of the UK and they can’t put it in a cabinet that is so close to an exchange.
