Not in any useful way next door as there are no homeowners there.
Going further down the street would require a street cabinet instead of something based in our building, which would be a project of a completely different magnitude, permissions etc instead of doing something we can fully control by ourselves. And this would again make me a wandering fibre broadband salesman to unknown people, which I do not have time, energy, enthusiasm or skills to do.
This is the problem there. I could chip in £500 to solve the problem but I do not have any intention to start selling this door to door. I would assume others think pretty much the same.
A company who has salespeople on their payrolls should send them to do this, as it is or could be their business. They should do their calculations and present a case for potential buyers with a price tag. As they refuse to do this either, I guess everyone involved understands the difficulty of solving the problem even with residents' money there.
This is where I hope the government initiatives will help next year. If it makes network investments more attractive in general, it might motivate someone to start selling their solution without a large "community" present driving the project.
