Bribe a BT engineer

How much do you think it'd take for an engineer to sneak one of these onto a bunch of lines?

Haha,I know. wink
I think what does frustrate me however is that a box like this could be dropped in on a bunch of lines, even part funded by the customers benefiting and hey pesto.
Obviously it all needs tested to death before BT would ever deploy such equipment.
Pity that it's only the exchanges that are llu, if only the infrastructure was too.
I.e. llu cabinets.

Hmm... It seems too good to be true though? I'm sure there's plenty of limits to its effectiveness.

On a side note, re my other thread did you get any line stats?

Keep saying that the issues are not technical, but the cost of doing the various solutions and the general desire within Openreach (and BT as a whole) to avoid custom solutions, i.e. they prefer to do large scale type solutions.

You can certainly get 'LLU' cabinets. See South Yorkshire Digital Region for an example.

I agree and I know it's a silly suggestion, but I fear the large scale solution may leave more people without than originally expected.
I'm still not convinced these percentages and numbers (especially based on postcodes) are accurate enough.
With us nearing the end of the commercial roll out, once the dust settles,I think there will be a lot more premises left high and dry.
On the subject of llu cabinets, are there any further details on this available?
