      Confused about cabinets

      Ok a few days ago there were digger boyz lol across the road from me digging up a cabinet. Eventually they put a new cabinet in it's place and a little further down they put another green box. So it looks something like this
      Code:

      BTW thats a pic I found online that looks exactly how it does where I am even the green boxes are exactly the same. So my question is do these boxes have anything to do with fibre optic because I used samknows and it says my exchange is in ALLOA (ESALL).

      Your exchange is due for upgrade 1/9/12, but there have been reports of exchanges being ready before the estimated date.
      SamKnows - Broadband Availability - Alloa (ESALL) Exchange

      You link is 'not found' by the way.

      Don't get too excited though. Right across the road from me (30yards) are the 2 cabinets so I thought I'd get top speeds on fibre. Turns out that my cabinets are 300yards up the road & those opposite service houses down the road from me.

      Thanks guys @Isitme does that mean I will be able to order fibre optic on or around that date or will I have to wait a year and a half for them to do some setting up.

      The best thing to do is keep checking the BT Infinity site, when it becomes available there, Sky will follow shortly.

      According to this site your exchange will be enabled by 30/9/12, same as mine.
