My in-laws live in a remote area, serviced currently by ADSL2 (at least I think it's 2, though it may as well be dialup). They currently get 1.3Mbps down and ~0.25Mbps up. So streaming videos/audio is a pipe dream.
I'd sooner something was done for people like this, than people like me who keep getting emails saying I'm now able to upgrade to 300MB... and im not sure if the new FoD, is a step towards that.
Given the "new" FoD/Openreach changes, do things look a bit rosier for them? I've checked out the proposed 2018 pricing
, but don't really understand it in all honesty.
They're currently running of the MRWHA exchange, and lie 2.5k from the exchange, and also 2.5k from the nearest FTTC enabled cab. They're served by over head/pole telephone lines.
I appreciate that they can't just stamp their feet and expect BT to run some new copper direct, or what not, but what options do they have under these new FoD regs?
Who do they speak to to investigate things?
What rough costs might they be looking at?
