Can't see that happening.

I can't see how this would even be feasible.
The jumpering of pairs to activate an FTTC service is done in the PCP.

To completely remove the PCP but keep FTTC would require giving most engineers access to the DSLAM (this is NOT gonna happen) or doing this work in the underground junction box in front of the PCP instead.

Even when PSTN goes IP they will still need PCP's, unless they completely rip out the E-Side cables

I really really can't see them ripping up the E-Side cables and running the voice service from the FTTC DSLAMs.
LLU operators won't like the idea of that 1 bit.
As well as making their ADSL equipment obsolete they would also have even less control of the voice side of things.

Just wondered if the hot weather can cause any issues snr in general? - I was away for a week or so and had zero internet due to my ds snr falling to 1.5 for the entire time I was away.

still seem to be having some issues and speed has been falling back from 65 to now 63 over the last couple of days . I asked sky to check the line etc but as per usual no faults detected.......

Can the heat cause snr to collapse?

update.. dlm stepped in and lowered the sync again

you can see my snr output at this link. Thoughts appreciated...

Currently a "G.Fast pod" is fitted to the primary cross-connection cabinet (PCP) and not the "fibre" cabinet.

Ah, I see! Wasn't there talk of BT removing those PCPs once the network goes IP switched? Or did I make that up...

Suppose if they did, part of the decommissioning would be to move the pod to the DSLAM

You need a slide scanner to convert the slides to  .jpg files for printing and storing. I've no experience of these devices, but they're readily available from Amazon and other places for ~50.

Our eldest child reaches  50 soon and a grandchild has asked us to sort out some photos.
Many of the earliest years are on slides, and I am thinking of the best way to produce 6x4s from those slides. Is there a way, easy enough for old Ren, or a cheap way via the commercial path?

Multifunction is Canon Pixma MG6851.

PCP31 is full with a waiters list in effect. The roadworks description suggests the PCP is being reshelled and not a new DSLAM fitted.

Just as an aside.   Openreach reshelled most of the PCPs around here last year.  It's not as if all of them were really old type either.
