Boston Cabinet 77 (PE21 7LY)

Do you know when this cabinet will be upgraded to fibre. Should have been last year, A search indicates early this year, but I do not see any signs of progress in or around the cabinet location.

Hi Martin

Thank you for your message.

I think we corresponded last year, in December? Your cabinet is due to be enabled in Phase 7, between July and December 2015

Kind regards

Hi, thanks for your reply. Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you, I blame other commitments !. I notice a new cabinet placed next to where I think Cabinet 77 is located, is that correct ?. Perhaps fibre may arrive sooner than expected. I also note that when entering my postcode to check the arrival of fibre that it gives Phase 5 as the answer, that seems to have come and gone.

Hi Martin

It does say Phase 5 doesn't it! I do apologies for this, the cabinet was moved into Phase 6 during the early phases of the programme when some more funding was made available. We're going to change that for you so the information provided should now be correct.

Phase 6 begins at the end of April so works could have started now. It runs until the end of September. Sign up to our newsletter and we will send you lists of completed cabinets every fortnight - this way you won't need to remember to check.

That is correct about the new cabinet - Fibre to the cabinet Technology (FTTC) involves a new cabinet being built and fibre being fed to it. This is then connected to the old cabinet and the signal travels down the existing copper to the property.

Hope this helps
Kind regards
Naomi
