Also I got a question, when they are passing so many premises, am I right in thinking this means they are hooking up the telephone poles/manholes, not actually physically connecting houses (until the house makes an order) ?

Correct.
Very expensive and time consuming to hook every passed property up when many may never take an FTTP service.

Driving down the road this morning and I could not believe my eyes as this has appeared.   I double backed and pulled over just to make sure I wasn't seeing things.

I have no words.

As j0hn comments, it could be a side-pod for Tie-Pair relief ..... and ..... it is.

Just seen the job-pack and that is one very busy Cab, kitz !! (Assuming it is your own feed-cab and not just a random one within your town ??).

Thank you muchly kind sir!   Yes that is my cab. 
They put one on the cab a couple of streets up too.  Openreach seem very active in this area atm. 
As to the cab being busy...  that could well be why my sync speeds have been so drastically affected by cross-talk.   
Hope they move over to FTTP asap so at least some move off the cab  (Not sure yet if I will be getting fttp due to budget and priorities)

Yeah .... 1400 cross-connections in your Cab, kitz.  :'(

I wonder if you applied a bit of 'spin' with the ISP(s) or even Openreach themselves, regarding a FTTP connection once the roll-out finishes ??

I'm sure a well-read site like this could be seen as a plus, with regard to advertisement/feedback from the site owner ?? My old man always used to say ... "If tha' dunt ask, tha' dunt get' ....  ;D

It's interesting to know that the pods (as shown in kitz's attached image), previously only associated with Huawei electronics (first G.Fast and latterly VDSL2), are now also being used for tie-pair relief. Perhaps it is just down to local stock-holding?

Side-pods have been used for quite a while for tie-pair relief, B*Cat .... can't comment on the 'makes & models' used though.  :)

Yes, agreed.  :)  I remember those that first appeared actually had two horizontal "tunnels" to link the PCP and the pod, which was "planted" four to six inches away from the PCP.

I think perhaps the point was to ask why that stand-off, or not so stand-off, pod is ventilated when it has nothing active in it?

Was it .... I didn't quite get that from the musings ??

All Cabs are ventilated ..... there is a rubber seal that runs around the the door trims that is cut at certain points to allow air-flow to halt condensation .... even on the old cast-iron Cabs containing purely copper/Ali cables.

Unlike yourself to be slightly cryptic, B*Cat ..... you usually ask the question direct.  ;) ;D

Hope my last post before this sheds a little light on things ??

Not really, Sir.

It has nothing active in it so why the same shell as a Huawei G.fast or VDSL DSLAM?

Just made sense to buy the shells in bulk and use them for everything?

The shell for tie pair relief on my PCP, one passing 650 premises and with at one time over 600 FTTC lines active has no obvious vents.

Unlike yourself to be slightly cryptic, B*Cat .....

It is that time of the year, for me.  :(

To date, I have been aware of those pods (as shown in kitz's photograph), with extensive ventilation slots in the door, to contain a Huawei DSLAM either for G.Fast services or VDSL2 services. The other type of "door ventilated" pods I understand to contain a Nokia DSLAM for G.Fast services.

To see one of those pods used just for tie-pair relief make me wonder why. Could it be because of: (1) Depleted local stock holding (of the usually seen) stand-off cabinet for tie-pair relief?  (2) A directive from on high that all G.Fast deployment should cease and, as Magna Park holds many of pods designed to contain active electronics, those pods are being issued for any task that could help to reduce the said stock holding? (3) Some other conspiracy?  :-\
