Bourne Cabinet 14 (Thurlby)

#1
Hi Please could update me with any information you have on the Bourne Cabinet 14 thats in Thurlby Village PE10 0HX.

Ive seen the new Cabinet installed on Chapel Lane I'm hoping this is for the new Fibre Cabinet.

Kind Regards

Good Afternoon Matt

Cabinet 14 off Bourne Exchange is located in Chapel Lane as you mention. It sits within Phase 6 of this project and is therefore due for completion by 30th September. As we move into September, we should get a clearer view of when we expect to complete it.

yes I am also served by cabinet 14. Its painfully slow 1mb connection currently. Is it likely that orders will be available earlier than the 30th of September?

Thanks

Good afternoon all,

Apologies there have been some issues with the phasing of this cabinet - it is in Phase 7 rather than Phase 6 and should be enabled before the end of December subject to unforeseen delays. Please keep an eye on our project updates page and if it is enabled earlier we will let you know.

Apologies for the phasing error

Kind regards
Naomi

my work colleague had his cabinet upgraded recently in long Bennington. He was as eager as I am to get fiber and said that after his cabinet was turned on (started hearing a humming fan noise from inside), it took a matter of a few weeks for his to start accepting orders. Since cabinet 14 is humming the same as what his was, can it really take up to December for it be live?

Matt are you shivering with the thought of 1-2mb broadband till December too? Lol

Just checked the 4th of September update and cabinet 14 is still not live. So frustrating when half of the village is working and the half i live in isn't.

Does anyone know anymore news on timescale? all i know is that it will be before December.

Thanks

Hi Nick,

BT are still sticking with December as the deadline, but we will continue to push them to complete sooner. Should have a better view in a few weeks.

Hi Stephen,

thanks for your reply.

I have just seen on roadworks.org that BT are doing work up the road slightly from my exchange. Description of work below...

Description:
BOURNE - 309089 - BLOCKAGES - Excavate onto BT ducts for the clearance of duct blockages in FW/VERGE/CW to facilitate spine cabling works.

Do you think this might be the hold up for this cabinet going live?

Many thanks

Good Morning Nick,

We are having some problems in the area with duct blockages and they are adding some delay to proceedings. However, we will look to clear these over the next few weeks.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your reply. once the ducts are clear in the next week or so, will it then be a few weeks for fibre to be live? or are we still looking at December for it to be live?

Thanks
Nick

Good Morning Nick,

Assuming we have no further problems with the ducts, we will push hard to complete well in advance of December, but we will have a better idea once we have cleared the ducts.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your reply.

The roadworks.org site is now clear of any BT related jobs now. hopefully that is the end of the blockages and fibre will be live soon.

I wait your update Steve.

Many thanks

Hi,

Quick update from BT's Where and When.

It is now saying:

Status: Under Review

We're in your area but we're still assessing whether or not we can upgrade your cabinet. This means you can't order Superfast Fibre.


It was on Status: Enabled Area a few days ago.

Does anyone have any information on why it appears to have been moved back and if this effects the time scale for this cabinet?

Many thanks
Nick

Hi,

Is it possible to get an update from BT on what is going on with this cabinet? All has gone quiet recently.

Many thanks

Lots of BT activity down Northorpe today! Is this just for Northorpe or will cabinet 14 get enabled too?

Good Afternoon Nick & Carl

Bt are still looking to get this done well before the December deadline. Latest I have is within a couple of weeks, but I will get more detail early next week.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your reply.

Guess its just a waiting game from now on then really.

Hopefully it will be early October rather than late October.

Like everyone else i cant wait to get fibre. I was taking the boys to the park on Saturday and bumped into the BT engineers, laying fibre cables at Lawrance Way coming from Northorpe Ln.

Fingers crossed its early Oct.

Just placed my order.

Signed up with BT last night. Promised 50 to 70mb.
#25
Waited for two weeks. Then waiting and waiting all day today for activation. Kept checking router and checked my bt during the day. Just checked my bt again now. Not at all happy the date has changed to 29th Oct with no text or emails about any problems or date change. So I will be on the phone to them tomorrow. Has any one else got an active connection on cabinet 14 yet?
