I suspect this is probably quite a common question. But what do you do when BT has rolled out FTTC to your whole Exchange area, just not your road?
BT rolled out FTTC to the whole of Woolston about 18 months. I live on a "new" road/area that has been here for 2-3 years (at still being built expanded), yet BT completely missed us. I did some digging, sent emails to people high up in BT, and the feedback I got was this estate was not covered in the FTTC upgrade plans. I've also contacted the housing development company who just don't seem interested. I've got a couple of friends who work for an ISP, I asked if they had any contacts who could assist, but OpenReach being the goliath they are, they couldn't help either.
My own line has a bit of an odd installation history, as I moved into the house before BT has finished installing the phone cab for my road. So they wired my line into a cab further around the corner which IS actually FTTC enabled (fyi WOOLSTON is served by Cabinet 8.), but I've been told then won't offer it to me, as it could cause interference/noise for my neighbors phone lines.
Anybody got anything thoughts on what I can do? The obvious answer is move, but thats not really an option at the moment. So I was wondering if anybody has had similar issues and any success of getting this resolved.
