They’re building, they’re building…

After mentioning last time that BT Openreach had registered their “roadworks” it was nice to see today that they had been doing some work around cabinet 25.

They're building, they're building...

Though in this picture you can’t actually see cabinet 25, it’s behind the green cabinet in the middle of the picture. They appear to be digging up channels to lay cables between the old cabinet and the new one. I believe that the new cabinet is then connected direct to the exchange with fibre, hence FTTC Fibre To The Cabinet. The last stretch of cable from the cabinet to the house is still old copper cable.

So will BT Openreach achieve their end of June deadline? Remember this was an extension from their original end of March deadline.


According to a Facebook thread, it appears BT Openreach have pushed their deadline to the end of August 2017.

As you might imagine, disappointed.
