You have to remember it's just the adverts saying it's fibre.
And you have to remember that for most people that's all they know. This isn't just a 'technical site'. It's a site that offers support and advice for the general public. For better or for worse the general public think that FTTC is 'fibre broadband'.
If you want the kind of elitist technical site that refuses to follow accepted common nomenclature you'll have to look elsewhere. We accept and (occasionally, if appropriate) advise of the validity
It would make no difference to the user if fibre went to a cabinet or an exchange
Now you're just being silly. I went from 13Mb/s with once a month reconnects to 67Mb/s with no reconnects.
I do agree (as would most of us) that it's a shame that fibre is mentioned. However there is most definitely a difference(*) so some distinction has to be made and if the general public has been taught to call it fibre broadband we have to accept that.
(*)Both in end-user experience and in the behind the scenes politics and economics of the roll-out.
