What does https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html say EXACTLY when you enter the full address (just hide your actual address when pasting it back).

Shows that some parts of the small town have FTTC and others do not, or at least no one has ran a test.

Did it give the cabinet number, and if so is it the same cabinet as the 44Mbps one?

Address checker should not rely on an active connection key now is the likely road distance to the exchange. Estimate suggests 6km or so ie 4 miles
