I believe my house is roughly the same distance from two different cabinets, and that one of them is fibre enabled. Needless to say, I'm connected to the other one. Although the exchange/area, Haywards Heath, doesn't have Fibre on Demand yet, I suspect this could happen well before my cabinet gets updated.
I'm just wondering with a FoD install if it is possible to choose a connection to another cabinet? Probably dreaming, but surely I won't be the first or last to ask...
