Speed on FTTC is all dependent on how long the copper lines are from the pcp to your property, a closer FTTC cab will not benefit you at all.
And, of course, the spped on FTTC is actually dependent on the line length from the premises to the PCP and then to the FTTC CAB so any distance between the two CABs in any direction is not good!
I assume the tie pairs between the two cabinets are "all" carrying VDSL2 - does this not cause vast amounts of cross talk during this run?
