Benefit of Exchange Only?


[link to this post]
 
Are there any benefits to an exchange only line?
I've a case where a 1200m exchange only line is one of two (next door neighbours) in amongst a mess of fttc cabinets, just racking my brain as to what could be offered over e/o that might not be available/as cheap as via a cabinet?
Etherways?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Cheers, flipdee

I can't think of any benefits of a long exchange only line over the same length line going via a cab - I guess I slight reduction in complexity/failure points as there is no cab in the picture but other than that nothing.

Were those two houses possibly show houses or builder's offices when the estate was built? Or perhaps an industrial building or mansion that ownd the estate land?

It was cheaper for BT to provide the telephone service back when the EO line was installed, rather than maybe build a cabinet for just one or two lines.

Hi Andrew, RobertoS, Ian72,
Thanks for your thoughts.
RobertoS, yes, I believe these were two separate houses built/connected at a much earlier/distinct time than the rest of the town.
Is there any currently available BT connectivity product which benefits from a line being E/O?
Clutching at straws a little I know.

Cheers,

Even non-domestic products?

Then the EO question is probably irrelevant. How many thousand squidoodles have you budgetted?

Your probably right, was just trying to think laterally about the current E/O fttc limitation.
If 100/150Mbps+ was still within a grasp of reality price wise, then it might be an option, but £1500 per month is a bit rough.

If these two houses are in amongst other houses which have FTTC then you might be able to pay for a network rearrangement, but it will cost £££££££
