at a loss as to how it's related to this case. You are the one who was asking why BT did not move people to a nearer cab. You may be at a loss to understand the purpose of my post in much the same way as I am at a loss to understand your inability to appreciate that BT are unable to carry out a network arrangement on the whim of and at no cost to the customer.
Nevertheless let's hope you are now connected to the nearby cabinet and will benefit from its proximity.
You're inferring this whim, where I haven't implied it. I don't "expect" anything of the sort, I ask direct questions because I am a question asker and seek answers - I do not feel I am entitled
to said answers, but I ask them in order to learn and grow my knowledge. I said that to my FTTC-uneducated mind,
the nearer of the two cabs makes most sense for me to be connected to ON THE SURFACE and at a cursory, uninformed level, but I understand that straight forward black and white logic doesn't always and cannot always, get or be adhered to in practice. Again, understand that I am not "in the know" regarding the extremely niche world of knowing all the interconnections, terminations, obscure context-specific broadband acronyms or every conceivable form of wiring practice, cabinet deployment, BTOR logistics, technologies etc... maybe you read things into my comments which I didn't ever mean - who knows - it's a misunderstanding I think, maybe on both our parts.
If I knew this stuff, I wouldn't be asking other people and consuming their time. I am usually a observational learner, not an interactive one; I learn fast, but since I have no real passion for caring about/learning about ADSL/FTTC to a greater degree, I delegate to those who invest their time in doing so, and value it a lot. I find forums quickly (can) get tedious and emotionally wearing, because misunderstandings inevitably arise.
I don't mean to come across unappreciative; I am slightly autistic, I do not always understand the subtleties of text-based comms online, forgive me.
