You are indeed on an "EO" line (Exchange Only). You may be lucky and get a CAB installed outside the Exchange but its not likely.
You may be lucky at get a cab though, on my exchange they built a fibre cabinet outside the exchange, well two if you count one that is directly opposite the exchange and then the other about 100 yards up the road.
In the next town I have also seen a fibre cabinet outside the exchange as well. I just think it is luck! I wish I was only a couple of hundred metres away from the exchange and not 2 miles with no fibre!
