I work for a small company and as you'd expect we rely on Broadband (a lot). Before anyone suggests, we do not have the means for a leased line, it would be nice and in an ideal world I'd love it, but it's way off.
We are connected to a cab 800m away via a 1.3km line. We have ISDN (voice) and now a Digital region connection (FTTC 40/10 running @ 12/2.5 due to length).
I noticed when I went for a walk the other day that there is another fibre cabinet 83m away from us on the other side across the absolute corner of a farmer's field!
Fantastic I thought, I could talk a farmer in letting me dig that especially at the moment as the field is fallow (and in any case I would be running around the edge where you can't get the tractor up to anyway).
My only obstacle is that it is the other side of the road - I fear this may be fatal to my plans.
What are people's experiences? Is BT's stance that you are connected to a cab, so if you order a line, this is where it will come from? Can they be persuaded? I could look at some one off type charges.
Any advice welcome!
