Re: New DSLAM!

any idea if they are cutting all the phone lines straight to fiber or leaving them the way they are?

I wish i could get some details for what they plan to do around here.....

Im not sure on that I have been wondering the same thing but I think its just for data, Maybe someone else on the forums will weigh in on that question. I know how you feel its hard to get information on future upgrades I got lucky I ran into a CO tech the guys today I spoke to worked for centurylink through a contract they were just in normal clothes and drove their own vehicles you would never know they were with centurylink.

Most remote pair gain cannot utilize fiber..... except for the Litespan 2000 which can only use fiber feed. And it breaks down an OC3 to channelized T-1's for voice.

ok then, how many extra circuits are available to be used for Bonded DSL connections on old rural bundles?
I was kind of hoping that CenturyLink would put multiple terminals along the fiber line for my area and cut all the voice onto the fiber for each one so they could free up circuits in the bundle to get Bonded connections to people.....

I dont think that they do anything like that. As far as the number of free pairs in the cable im sure there are enough to do bonded otherwise I doubt they would even offer the bonded connection. I thought the underground lines in my area were very old but one tech I talked to said they are fairly new because they used to be strung on poles then they put in new cable and everything went underground.I asked him if there was a lot of free pairs and he said there is a whole lot left to be used.

Sorry, it just doesn't work like that.

Thats the thing. I know there is enough cable coming out of the riser box to get a bonded line, in fact there are 2 cables that i assume have a total of 7 unused pairs coming out of the riser box. (each cable has 5 pairs, one has 2 used and the other most likely only 1) however, that doesn't give me any info regarding what kind of availability there is in the deep bundle

Im not entirely sure. But I think its pretty standard for the main underground cable to have a large number of pairs I would say 50 to 100 maybe more depending on the number of houses that were there when everything was first planned and the cable was put in the ground. Really though I dont think theres any reason to worry about it, if centurylink plans on expanding new services to your area then they will make sure everything is in place to deliver the service to everyone
