No change of FTTx in a place which is sub-5000 in population then.
If it's close enough to other high population centres or has an affluent population (where the take-up is likely to be quite high) I'd say your chances are good.
If your sub-5000 town is stuck out (on its own) in the middle of nowhere, I'd say you've more chance of flying
I'm away of many towns at (or just above) that level of population which have FTTc enablement dates ahead of ours (and our exchange serves just shy of 20,000 domestic lines).
Business lines seem irrelevant as OR seem not to be doing cabs in industrial or business districts (probably to stop loads of companies ditching their very expensive leased lines - ours costs us probably 20x the cost of a FTTc vDSL connection and is significantly slower).
I tend to agree with you on ADSL2+.
The least BT can do (with all the exchange equipment which will be sitting idle once FTTc take-up increases) is to stick that equipment into the small exchanges and switch on ADSL2+ for you guys.
Actually the 'least they can do' is nothing and suspect that's what they'll do!
I would, but he's Labour
What? A Labour MP in Scotland....are you sure?
They're getting as rare as Welsh Tory MPs these days!
