You seem to have missed Dundee Steeple from that list. Though I guess technically you didn't find that one ;-)

Hi Broadband Watchers.
The provision of a pod and cabling ties plus Power and the provision of the unit will be only a days work on the Cab the time delay will be in the fibre connection and data build. This will be longer than the provision of extra ports on a cab I have see a an extra port extension from crew leaving Manchester and completing the work in the south Hants and returning home in a Day.
This crew were ex BT staff know working as contractors this Cab was open two days later.so the whole system is very fluid. My feeling is Andrews teem will be pushed to keep up with the progress.

Aberdeen Denburn had pods deployed mid 2018 and yet still not live.

Does anyone know the reasons why these are taking so long?

Connormill.. No doubt because we north of the border are in lower numbers. In the rural area I am in north of Aberdeen can't even get above 20 mb from the cabinet as there are too many subscribers already. To up grade in our village is not likely until the internet is out of fashion.

Hi. Broadband Watchers looking for GFast.
Check on the post Code where the Cab with a Pod is situated and other Post Codes that are close in a radius of that Cab each week.
