Pod installation doesn't involve street works so no need for notices.

Does anyone know what happens if the PCP is on a corner?  The gfast pod would stick out into the pavement if the pod can't articulate?  Thanks

skyeci has shown me a photograph of an example of a pod in exactly that scenario.

Early this afternoon b*cat was slowly plodding home with the week's grocery shopping. The route taken passes a PCP & it's associated Huawei MA5603T equipped twin. What was seen bolted onto the right-hand side of the PCP? I shall not be giving out pre-licked kitteh-treats to the first person who responds with the sentence: "A Huawei equipped ITU-T G.9700/1 pod."  :D

My node, the one I took a picture of and placed on here, has had a pod on it since August. It still ain't live.

Don't hold your breath, could be a while for a few reasons, though at least that pod is in the checker :)

I am in Luton - another one of the listed "trial" areas and we have had the g.fast pods fitted since June last year.

Still no sign of them being activated, not that I hold out much hope being ~ 450m from the pcp!

In Wandsworth, another trial area, G.Fast has started to show as available on the DSLChecker - many months after they were fitted.

However, I understand that even if Openreach install and activate a pod, BT Wholesale don't show it as active on their systems until they have upgraded their exchange links.

bit of a pointless exercise in combe down.VM are in the process of doing many streets where the g.fast pods are & expanding their network ::) Probably beat OR to it considering the pods were fitted last summer and still not active.

Wonder if VM will finally find their way to Bathampton, we also had G Fast pod install last summer.

Checking the post code BA2 4DB (Holburne Museum) on link below, it is showing cab 31 is live & apparently accepting orders for for G Fast.
As is Cab 28 & post code BA24EZ, 17 Pultney Road.
