I have a similar situation for where I am moving to soon (in a month or so).
The exchange and cabinet are fibre enabled however there is around a ~2 mile distance from the village in question (Sproxton) to the cabinet which is in Helmsley. The usual websites suggest 4mbit is the best I can achieve, since FTTC is not available. FTTPoD is offered but i cannot justify paying for it. According to the openreach website they are exploring options for the cabinet in question, so again not good news short-term.
My solution is at the moment banking on the local fixed wireless provider (LN Comms - www.iloveboradband.co.uk
) being able to provide a ~30mbit service as long as I am within range which needs to be verified by a quick site survey.....
... biding my time until a solution appears either in the guise of improved connectivity via the BT route or something else coming along.
The fixed wireless option I am backing at the moment as it frees me of requiring a pair of wires coming in which I am tied to paying ~£16 a month for.
I would take a look in your area for something OTHER THAN the BT route if this is going to be giving you a below par service for the same price others pay for something above 40mbit. Looking at the online Lincolnshire website presented me with THIS
. Might have some promise, also theres a good ammount of information on the phases of thier broadband rollout....is there anything to be found for the area you are looking at in terms of an upgrade to the system???
Just my opinion, there are other opinions available
