On my travels, I’ve been stalking more BT Openreach “Cabs”, that have been upgraded or added to facilitate “Superfast Broadband” in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Pocklington area.
This is the largest FTTC cab I've found!
Another large FTTC cabinet, outside Co-op, in fact this cabinet obstructs your view, when pulling out of the Co-op car park!
Different older style PPC cab
Recently, these stickers have been stuck on the cabs! Note the ventilation slits to cool the switch gear inside!
Now the next photo is very interesting….(well I think so…), this is Cabinet 1, and it’s NOT been upgraded as yet, I thought all the cabinets in Pocklington, had been upgraded except Cabinet 10. Cabinet 1 is located on the main high street in Pocklington (Main Street!), which supports ALL the shops, so they’ll not be on Superfast Broadband yet!
Cabinet 1 on Main Street, Pocklington
and this is Cabinet 10
Cabinet 10 on "The Mile"
Cabinet 10 on "The Mile", plenty of space for a new FTTC cab!
and the importance of Cabinet 10, is it’s My Cab! Well not my personal cab, but where my fixed telephone line terminates!
So there is plenty of space near Cab 10 for a new FTTC cab, and I understand that Cab 1 and Cab 10 are still being evaluated, for upgrade, so there is maybe still hope!
It’s possible, that as quite of lot of work may be required for Cab1 (it’s on a busy high street), and my new Cab needs to planned, because it’s near residents garden….
Lets keep fingers crossed!
