New bt cabinet??

Go to solution
Hi, I have been conversing back and forward for the last couple of years about a quicker internet connection. I have had little success due to the distance from my cabinet and exchange. I can just about manage to get 1 mb connection. Within the last week there has been a new cabinet placed directly opposite the top of my lane. How can I fine out what this is for and also does anyone know if this would improve my broadband speed if I was connected to this?

Looks likes the PCP has had a reshell (larger size) normally in preperation of additional copper required for the installation of the Fibre Cab (DSLAM)

Sorry, not to sound like a d**k. PCP?? This is a completely new installation . There was nothing there before. If I am connected to this cabinet instead of my current one( 2 miles away) will this improve my broadband speed?Or is it to do with distance from the exchange??
