Re: mj Quinn bt openreach engineers

Pcp are basically e side (exchange) and d side (distribution to smaller dp.ie telegraph poles or underground dp bombs) these then have 4 wire telco cable to premises.each wire represents 1 telephone line. If you have copper installs voice over data using krone strips its a bigger version of that.easy enough to get a hold of.

Re: mj Quinn bt openreach engineers

I took the latest course on the 18th that means I can get cheapest available train ticket for the following week to pick van up. But also booking accommodation so far ahead had made it cheaper too

Re: mj Quinn bt openreach engineers

I wish all you guys well but I've pulled out. I'm not prepared to sit around all day until 4:00 ish to begin the training day. I'm really sure you won't be popular getting back to your digs gone midnight. It's their loss IMO, train me during the day & I'll be there in a shot.
