Anyone else struck any new fibre feed roadside cabinets with no DSL ports spare? I thought these were pretty much almost 1-1 mapping of DSL to lines; so port waiters were a thing of the past?

This is an RBI cabinet, but is still a full size single bay; not the new smaller style.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 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.

Happens more than you would think. Even if the krone modules are there doesn't mean there is a card plugged in to them. Even around Palmy here there are cabinets with a full 288 subscribers and more gear needed to be added.

Kumeu/F wass originally a copper cabinet with a 300 pair feeder cable.  

Under the RBI upgrade we  laid fibre to the cabinet site & replaced the old cross-connect cabinet with a Single-Bay Whisper cabinet housing an ISAM to supply broadband.

If you have a customer that can't get service it is unlikely to be a lack of ports in the cabinet.  Can you DM me the exact address with the problem?  Possibly a problem elsewhere, give me the details and we can advise.
