I've got a couple of questions I was hoping someone here may be able to answer.
I'm connected to cabinet 151 on the Cheltenham exchange, which isn't part of the 66% commercial roll out as Openreach deem it to be "not commercially viable". We're not in the intervention area for our county's BDUK (Fastershire) as they think we're in "an area likely to receive commercial investment."
I wrote a little app that hits the address checker to come up with the number of properties on a cabinet, and there are around 164 properties connected to our cabinet.
First question: Is this likely to be the reason why it's not commercially viable, or is this a reasonable number of properties for a cabinet? Does anyone know why the cabinet isn't viable?
Second question: I've confirmed with Fastershire that the 2mbps minimum for all applies to everyone and not just their intervention area, although the website implies it is just their intervention area. We currently get around 1.6Mbps, so although 2Mbps isn't amazing, it's still 25% increase. Does anyone know how they're likely to achieve this? I'm hoping Satellite isn't the answer as low latency is important to me too.
