Why? 5 years is a long time in internet years (and it'll be more like 10), and the cabinets will still serve areas that won't be covered by FTTH. Besides, cabinetisation is Telecom's initiative. Ask them.

not pointless at all, the cabs are easy to install and when there is a shift to fiber to the house then can be repurposed to hold that gear instead.

Would you rather wait another 4-6 years to see an improvement on 1.8megabit if you are at the limits of an exchange (as beachhaven is) - if I resync at night I will see 3 some days if I am lucky. Its getting worse as time goes on for obvious reasons. cabnenetization is going to make it a lot better, for minimal outlay on choruses part.

Fiber to the node is not wasted, sure, there will be some gear that gets left over after 5 years when the new stuff goes in, but thats just the nature of progress.

hairy1: Good points. Where is the end game in all this? Fibre to the home? If it is, then having an implementation now for cabnetisation and then another one in 5 years time for FTTH seems pointless....

GPON can a similair node as architecture as a FTTN network. The optical splitters and OLT's need to reside somewhere, putting these within the new FTTN cabinets makes a lot of sence.
