Jesus, what a mess that is. Another driver who got their licence out of a cornflake packet, perchance?

Metcalfe Road, one of the local West Auckland drag strips :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

 

Cel-Fi supply and installer - boost your mobile phone coverage legally
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Do you know the street number on Metcalfe Road? I wouldn't mind taking a look on streetview thank you.

Oh wow. What a nightmare.

Out of interest, just how the heck do they untangle which line is which in a situation like this? Do they have to put a tone on each line at the roadside one by one?

nope cable are in 50 pair groups and are colour coded for each pair (circuit). Once you have IDed the cable then you have 50

they will probably tag each cable as they untangle the damaged cabinet to speed up the restoration process


btw looks like the fibre is still connected (the small blue cable right hand side when looked at the front )
but there isnt any power connection any more

Edit: reword

Virgil: I wish someone would take out my one ... TAT/D ... i would happily go without for a week if it meant it was replaced with a nice shiney new one that did half decent speeds, or even VDSL ...


perhaps someone had that same idea and deliberately drove into it ;)

Was the chances of this happening a factor when they decided where to put cabinets? Would they move the cabinet?

Otherwise sink some massive posts infront of it so that the next idiot car driver wraps around that instead of the poor cabinet getting taken out.

There was a green TelstraClear box not far from me that used to get hit rather often as it was on the side of a driveway. They then bolted a bit steel bollard into the ground on both sides - I saw this also get severaly damaged on a couple of occasions!

This incident illustrates amply and with all clarity the superiority of FTTP over FTTN.
