The cabinet is stood. Does this mean it can take orders?

No – the cabinet is stood refers to the new green cabinet that will appear in your area usually adjacent to an existing green cabinet. This will house the new fibre connections. The fibre arrives at the cabinets through underground ducts, usually in the verges alongside roads, and it is only when this is connected to the stood cabinet, then the cabinet goes live and is ready to receive orders. We plan to notify the Parish Council when a cabinet has gone live.
