Can someone help with an E/O to fttc question.
On my street there are 2 cabinets about 150 metres & 250 metres away, but on the other side of the road. The BT line checker has changed from accepting orders to under review for fttc. My line is an E/O line and the exchange is 2 miles away. I think mine & my neighbours' lines must pass through the BT manhole and pass at least one of the cabinets on the way to the exchange. I am not certain these cabinets are fttc enabled yet, but the postcode checker says it is available in the area.
BT tell me that they have no plans to upgrade E/O lines at this exchange & it is not commercially viable for them to do this. There are about 12 houses affected.
Could anyone tell me if this is a massive job to switch the line into a cabinet or am I being a total simpleton in underestimating what's involved? I asked BT several times what if a new house was built on the spare land at the side of my house, how would they connect it to the telephone/broadband supply but they refused to answer.
Thanks in anticipation.
