My village has finally had Open Reach/contractors laying fibre optic lines to a new cabinet at the side of the existing BT cabinet, about 100yds from my house. Although it's still awaiting a power supply to be connected.
When it does go 'live', if I don't take up a 'high-speed' broadband contract with my ISP what are the chances I'll see a speed benefit anyhow? Or will my current 3Mb connection forever be routed through the old system? (for spite?)
