It was destined to be a FTTP/C exchange, with FTTC available in some areas and FTTP available in others.
I personally saw Openreach laying Fibre throughout various parts of the city two years ago - these areas have had the tell tale Fibre connection point atop various poles and have done since summer 2011.
Unfortunately near-as-makes-no-difference, none of these actually have Openreach fibre services available to order. The FTTC areas have been live for best part of two years now.
I recently moved, again to an area which was slated for FTTP but all I can get is ADSL 2+; but that's fine, with the aid of DMT Tool I'm connecting at a rock solid 19.2 Meg and am very happy with that.
The Openreach engineer however advised me that Openreach are no longer doing FTTP in Exeter.
I don't know how much to trust what he's said but if he's correct then this means that an alarmingly large proportion of the city will be left with ADSL; a lot of them at the end of a long line - E.g. Cab P135.- with no Virgin Media alternative.
