The additional cabinet was installed near the top of Cranleigh Road in December 2011, and engineers were observed completing the fibre connections to the cabinet on 19th May 2012. FTTC services were finally made available from 12th October 2012; the main cause of delay appears to have been the extensive work needed to run the new fibre optic cables from central Cranleigh. Availability was suspended from around 08/01/13 to 14/01/13, and again from around 06/03/13 to 07/05/13, probably while additional capacity was added. Please read the comments under this post for the full story. For information on checking availability and ordering the upgrade please see our FTTC Guide here.
No planning application was required for this new cabinet.
