      That cab with the number 30 on it is not a fiber cab, its PCP number 30 and is the original bt cab that the copper lines go through.
      And this is yet another example of a post that didnt really need a new thread did it

      /sigh

      No, it is a fibre cabinet...it was replaced a few months ago, when the 1st fibre cabinet was put in place...as i have seen street photo on google maps, the same area...dated June 2011:

      Fibre cabinets where I live-jds1.jpg

      Now this cabinet has a different number on it...and so the number it is in a different position on this cabinet shown, so this is an old cabinet in same area as 2nd cabinet

      Also the cabinet is different size to 2nd fibre cabinet...

      also with 2nd cabinet(30), there is evidence on the floor by cabinet, of recent work...but in the June 2011 street photo, there is no evidence of any work done there...

      There is no evidence of work done here in June 2011, so recently this cabinet was replaced by a fibre cabinet with the number 30, i believe, as recently as feb/mar 2012

      also there is this:
