So Rutland CC have announced that BT, starting from October 2012, will be rolling out fibre-optic broadband to many across the county, As far as I know they want 90% of customers receiving 25mbit and above and 10% between 2mbit-24mbit.
My question is how are they going to rollout fibre broadband with the lack of BT cabinets around? I've only seen a handful of them and from what I understand you need a normal BT cabinet to connect the new fibre cabinet to it.
In that link above, there is a cabinet infront of the telephone exchange and I was wondering if that's likely to be related to anything BT?
I need to also check with BT, but since I live literally 70m as the crow flys from the exchange and my line length according to kitz calculator is 400m. So I'm thinking that I'm probably connected directly to the exchange which will mean I won't be getting fibre any time soon.
Is it likely they'll be putting in new cabinets alongside the new fibre ones? I know BT have £3million+ to spend on the project for the entire county, so I'm not entirely sure what that buys you - could it even mean fibre to the pole?
Any help/information you could provide me with would be greatly appreciated.
