Hi there, first time poster here!
I've been looking into getting fibre broadband and it has been quite frustrating. I know which exchange I'm connected to and which cabinet (both of which are fibre connected and taking orders). I'm 1 mile from the exchange and 0.5 miles from the cabinet, yet according to every ISP I've spoken to the speeds I can expect from FTTC are slower than my current ADSL speed (~12Mb).
Given that I'm not terribly far from the cabinet, why would this be? My current ISP (Sky) have said that while it is strange to have such a bad estimate, they can't give me an answer as to why. Last time I had an engineer out he said I had a perfect line, no noise or degradation what-so-ever.
Am I missing something, what could the problem be?
