Okay guys, im aiming to make a site that has the info about all BT PCP's & FTTC/P - I went around my area a few days ago having a look at where the cabinets are.

Theres some weird ones (big ones), bigger than a standard BT PCP, but smaller BUT wider than an FTTC cab, usually come in pairs - http://g.co/maps/vcpk4

Does anyone know what they are? They were put in around 1997 (apparentley, I was only like two years old then)

And these, anyone know what these ones are?

http://g.co/maps/375kn

VM isnt avalible in the area, so I doubt their VM. No number printed on them either. There was some that were broken into, they had cables and stuff inside them, and theres some manhole cover infront of them, you can see them slap bang infront of both cabinets (green & white)


If anyone wants to know, the site im making is: http://broadbandinfo.livefix.co.uk/


Cheers; Aman.

bit of a waste of time, Google pictures are at least two years old and probably before fibre came out



the one on the left is an old BT cabinet, the one on the right is a new Fbre cabinet

you white one could be anyrhing, traffic lights etc.

yeah i know;
and i do know what the bt standard bt pcp cabinets look like and the big green fttc ones, i did mention this at the start - the letterbox and grey letter holding thing isnt a cabinet fixed onto the pavement/ground. 

Ive changed the title of the thread now to better suit the question.

Does anyone know what they are? (Yes, they dont seem like BT ones) - Im also indicating cabinets that look like those on the site.
