Soon the long awaited FTTC should be arriving in our village curtsy of the Bedfordshire BDUK project. After years of a 1.2mb connection the idea of FTTC to the street cabinet just a couple of hundred yards up the road was a exciting prospect, would we hit max speed?
When the map was published last year was a bit puzzled as our road was at the edge of FTTC area, the next road along would not get it. Couple of weeks back new underground copper was laid to our pole, thats good I thought they are making a torough job of it.
Yesterday as I walked to the polling station I noticed our street cabinet had been removed, most odd, now I've realised what has happened, all the lines in our village have been taken back to the cabinet in next village, we will be on the end of a long copper line so will proboly get 15mb, and being LLU with TalkTalk can expect to pay a premium of £10 per month for this,.
Damn and blast, it seems the infrastructure has been put in place so that in years to come we will be left behind again.
