A collaboration including taxpayers' money has provided the village I live in with a shiny new FTTC cabinet, bringing superfast speeds to new phone lines in the village.
The trouble is that almost every house in the village already has a phone line, connected to a cabinet well over a kilometre away in one direction or another.
It isn't possible to get connected to the new cabinet.
Even if you pay for a new installation, Openreach will re-use the existing line rather than run a cable to the new cabinet.
I wasted half an hour looking, and found just one single address where the BT speed estimate was the 60mb/sec the new cabinet gives, rather than the 20mb/sec (or less) the existing cabinets are estimated to give. That address has no phone line at present.
