A friend has just moved to a very new estate in Bristol (it seems to be called Cheswick Village
) and when she tried to get broadband she was told that FTTC was at capacity (cabinet 14 on Filton according to the Openreach site) so she's now getting a sluggish 0.3 Mbps via ADSL (I'm hoping it will pick up a bit over the first few days).
What has to happen before she can get FTTC and how long is it likely to take? Is there anything we can do to accelerate the process? I'm a bit shocked that she's in such a situation on an almost new estate, why these houses aren't given FTTP is another question...
