The school I work at are having underground fibre cables installed. Now our exchange isn't even FTTC enabled yet (Sudbury, Suffolk). Now am I missing something but what is the point of this? Or is it for something else?
Most likely a point to point Ethernet leased line. The fibre is independant of any other network including FTTC/P broadband, and probably connects to local hub site, which could be in an exchange, school, or other local authority site
