In the lasts couple of weeks, driving on the way to work, I’ve noticed these new “green daleks” appearing on the street..
near the older BT “PCP” distribution cabinets
these are in fact the new style FTCC cabinets (fibre to the cabinet/premises), they have ventilation holes, because the new cabinets, just do not contain patch panels, but also electronic network switching gear, so they’ll run warm!
These are for Superfast Broadband, or BT Infinity. These cabinets are just off the A1079, at Bolton Lane, there are also many in Pocklington, that have been recently installed….
I’ve been stalking my cabinet, which has a cable run of 3.7km from my house, to the nearest junction box, and as yet no new FTCC cabinets has appeared, most of the others in Pocklington have now been completed!
I now fear, I could be in the 10% of Rural people, that are excluded from the Governments project to equip 90% of the country with Superfast Broadband!
