A cab you're looking at around 20k roughly though i can't be completely sure you're probably best contacting openreach

what exchange is you're boss on?

The only high speed internet i can see is virgin media cable

so maybe speak to them about installing a cab.

As epyon says, the most likely solution is to pay VM to extend to that area.

For BT Openreach fibre, (FTTC/FTTP), the exchange would need to be upgraded first before his cabinet could be. Or the fibre would need to come from a different exchange, which doesn't seem likely in the case of Huddersfield.

Is it worth trying to see why his ADSL speeds are so low?

Or is his pile so far from exchange that he'll never get more? grin

He could of course pay for a fibre business line and get a company to provide fibre/copper from their to the houses that he wants to cover. Would be different solution to the one BT use but not dissimilar to what a number of small providers are doing across the country. Don't know current costs but there are a number of companies out there that you can get fibre leased lines from and then would need to find someone who is willing to provide/support the infrastructure.

I suppose could also approach someone like Kijoma who do wireless broadband networks and see what it would take for them to provide some decent networks in the area.

Best bet would be pay for a copper ethernet circuit EFM from either BT or another provider (was a story from someone offering upto 35meg), using the cheapest efm I have worked on you would be looking at 8 lines bonded - so assume you get 1 meg per line and you have a good usable speed. I believe they are symmetrical and uncontended also. He could always set up a pro wifi network if he wanted to share it.
