Bit of a long story so bear with me.
We live in a village, we have BT Infinity here at home.
We are moving to my Mum's old house (she passed away suddenly) which is about 3mi away, out into the country, phone line from the same exchange - in our village.
The cabinet there is listed as "Enabled Area", and when I called BT to change our service, they said that fibre would 'probably' be enabled soon. However, when I queried whether this house would actually *get* fibre I was told they couldn't check that until the cabinet is enabled.
Currently, BT say they can offer 1.5-3MBps (ouch) on the line that exists there. Now, if I knew that fibre was getting switched on in 3mos and is going to be available there, I'd live with it until fibre arrived! However, is it even realistic to think the house will get fibre - is it too far away? If so, there are 2 LLU's at the exchange, TalkTalk and Sky. Sky says they estimate 1.8-11.8MBps (big range!). I haven't checked TalkTalk, used to be with them and wasn't impressed with their customer service.
Mum used to use EntaNet as a provider and got ~6MBps according to my brother, she had mentioned this speed to him - I know she used to stream Netflix and so on. As far as I understand it they are not an LLU so will have used BT's equipment?
Basically, I am very confused, I want to get the best possible speed for this place, but how can I possibly know who will give me that until I'm already in a contract? And my Mum isn't here to ask about it all.
If anyone can give me any advice it would be much appreciated.
