Now then Wombat ..... you're applying common-sense, and that won't do !!!

Nope, we pick up 'Cab only' self-installs at random times. I've been at one Cab when two other engineers have turned up to do the same work on 2 other separate circuits.  ::)

To be fair to OR, they are very simple 20 min tasks, and they like to use them as 'infill work' if all the appointments have gone out, or at the end of the day.

The correct term is 'damp string' :).
The problems are caused by it drying out :)

I sympathise with you UB.   Ironically your situation is rather strange in that Sheffield being served by Digital Region meant that BT didnt/couldn't go in.   Its unbelievable that Sheffield City doesn't have fttc and instead there's a pile of empty DR cabs sitting around doing nothing.   

What a waste of money. iirc there was in excess of 100 million of public funding that was sunk into DR, with another rescue fund cash dump of 40 million for the whole thing to fail.  :'(  I wonder how much it would have cost BT... and no doubt it would at least still be there and you wouldnt have people like UB in the situation they are now in and have been for a while :(
