Long line FTTC question


[link to this post]
 
Hi

We live in Leeds and are connected to the Hunslet exchange where at the moment there are no plans that I can see to upgrade to fibre.

We do not connect via a cabinet but connect directly to the exchange which is 2km away.

My question is if and when Hunslet becomes fibre enabled will I benefit and will I be moved to a cabinet?

Thanks

2km without a cab is strange. How do you know that you are directly connected to the exchange?

Whether they would install a cab when there isnt one at the moment would depend on the number of potential connections but I wouldnt hold your breath!

Numerous BT engineers have told me we have a direct connection.

Thanks

Not strange really.

Many rural areas have lines many many kilometres longer with no cabinets.

Exchange only areas in cities can often have very long lines, and no cabinet involved. Depends on this historical routing.

Just this minute had FTTC installed. His tool said my line was 1090M long. I'm currently syncing around 34Mbs down and 10 up. I'm very happy indeed. I was only predicted 8Mbs. The speed tests aren't working for me at the moment.

It can take a day or so for the BT tester to have access to the updated data set. Try first thing tomorrow and it should work.
