Is it FTTC or FTTN? On wikipedia, it says it's FTTN, not FTTC.

I'm confused.

AFAIK there aren't fibres to each cabinet, just a fibre to the "head end" cabinet that serves an area. So, FTTN

Yep, but that doesn't stop the VM marketing machine since the ASA don't appear to want to.

You're probably right there.

On my estate however there are many of the slave cabinets, and only one "head end" one. This happens to be much closer to me, in a direct line in fact, than the BT PCP.

I suggest to the OP therefore that (on this estate at least) it isn't really relevant. The connection to the premises is (I believe) different, BT copper pairs v Virgin coax.

Technically it's an HFC (Hybrid-Fibre Coax)
