UK's Openreach sends full fibre to Coventry


Removing the copper cuts us off

We no mobile signal here. It's the shape of the land, and the fact that the nearest mast is a little short-arse (perhaps somebody wanted to "avoid harming the rural aspect" - fuck off, you townie). We are only two miles from an A-road, so this is not the Lake District or the Pennines.

Thus we will have no way to make a 999 call and have the location automagically identified when they pull our copper cable out.

There must be thousands of small pockets all over UK just like us.

We had a machine gun post at the crossroads during WW2. May have to re-instate it.
