But OR are doing this as a commercial venture so must make a return on the investment.
PCPs that will never generate the level of income to cover the cost of FTTC will increase the cost to other users / lower ORs return.
Since the roll-out was presumably planned some time ago there are bound to be developments that were not build at the time.
Agree that BT certainly could have handled communications much, much better but it is what you get from a large organisation.
Presumably the assume that the ADSL checker and the "where and when" site is sufficient. Part of the problem is that most people would not recognise a PCP if they walked into it - how do BT explain the upgrade status of the PCP to the public?
EDIT: Typo spotted by RobertoS - insertion of "could" in second last paragraph which makes a significant difference to what I said rather than what I meant to say
