Oh I wish....
I live (for my sins commited in a previous life) in Miles Platting. About 1.5 Miles from Manchester city centre. It's not in the sticks or at the end of some god forbidden farm track.
My Internet offering (all ISP's) is ADSL+2 with around 7mb down and a sprightly 1mb up around 36ms latency. The exchange (Collyhurst) is situated 1.5 Miles away (cable length). I'm an Ex Openreach engineer just for the record.
We don't have FTTP nor FTTC at the cabinet, just ADSL direct to Collyhurst (via the cab).
Across the way, about 200m away, I can see the pole garnished with fibre access at the top serving a host of SME's.
I wrote to the shadow minister for business, my local MP Lucy Powell, and put the matter to her. She wrote back to say 80% of Manchester of residents have fibre access, but if I want to have FTTP I could bung Openreach (OR) a few thousand and they'd provide me and my neighbours with the goods. I only asked for FTTC.
I contacted OR and they said that they are now concentrating on FTTP rather than FTTC. So FTTC has left the building.
Someone said that OR were obliged to provide FTTP to all new builds. A thought quickly flashed through the old grey matter, knock the house down, rebuild, and hey presto FTTP. Surely must be an easier way......
Maybe that nice man Mr. Musk from the computer shop who has a sale on for Starlink is an alternative route?
No 5G mobile here and 4G gives me about the same speed as ADSL.
Apart from moving, what do other readers suggest? (Answer on a postcard and no smutty suggestions).
