Neurotic or Obsessive?
« on: January 01, 2018, 04:59:00 PM »

Hi folks,
Just wondered if anyone else was like me?! ;)
So I live in a town center in North Wales and currently have FTTC, but as all of us wish for even greater speed.
So when ever I walk in to town I check out the BT man whole covers to see if any have been disturbed, and poles to see if anything has been added to them. If driving around I also keep an eye out for BTOR vans and any cable reals.
So the question is has anybody else found themselves doing this?  :) ;)
Cheers
David

Purely out of interest I will look up poles, down at footway joint-box covers, carriageway chamber covers, etc.  :D

I don't have any FTTC. Just a 4.55mi (EO, I suspect) line. And no poles, manholes or such. Just the cable bundle lying by the side of the road, buried in a very few places but exposed for the last few  miles.
