Even More Broadband

I thought the rollout of superfast broadband cabinets in South Molton was over.  I was wrong.

South Molton Broadband Rollout v9

Another cabinet has been installed at the top of Duke Street. For a geek like me what’s interesting is that BT have also installed a new standard cabinet close by. What that could mean is that houses  close to the telephone exchange, which might have been directly wired to the exchange i.e. without going through a cabinet, might now be rewired so that they get to the exchange via a cabinet.

The reason that’s important, is that telephone lines which are directly wired to the exchange can’t get superfast broadband. Lines which go via a cabinet can.
