How successful is FTTC?


[link to this post]
 
How successful is FTTC in terms of user take up?

Is there any published data showing what proportion of ADSL users move to FTTC where it is available, and how does the actual take up compare with BT's planning assumptions?

How to BT decide whether to install FTC at a particular exchange. What assumptions do they make in determinging whether a particular exchange is financially viable?

How would I go about persuading BT that a particular exchange is viable?

Is there any chance that BT would install an FTTC cabiinet where the cable joint(s) are below a double manhole cover?

I suspect a big part of the decision is looking at % ADSL take up. During the ADSL rollout from 2000 onwards they selected the big exchanges first and the cities. This time round they have the benefit of up to 10 years worth of take up figures for each exchange area and can link that to cabinets. Cabinets with the most internet users will likely see it first.
