Hi, this has the potential to be a lengthy question so I'll try my best to keep it brief and use bullets:
I'm relatively non-technical but work in the IT industry so have some useful contacts who have contributed to assisting me so far.
The situation is that I moved into a property at this postcode (ol10 2re) and the max broadband speed I am getting is around 1.5mb.
I am on an exchange approx 5 km away
My local exchange is around 1km away
Both are fibre enabled but my local cabinet isn't
My ISP (fast.co.uk) has attempted to get openreach to move me to a the closer exchange but they have refused
A friend of mine works for a telecoms company and believes that moving to the closer exchange wouldn't make much difference
No virgin cable service locally
The location is not rural but there are farms either side of me despite being less than a mile from a major town centre, there are only 4 other houses in my immediate vicinity and the only other buildings serviced by the cabinet are on an industrial estate.
I have given up on improving the situation through conventional means and am looking at alternatives
Does anybody know of an economically viable leased line service for residential properties?
Has anybody had any experience with Sattelite broadband ( recommendations on providers?)
Has anybody heard of a residential property tapping into a local business leased line (with their consent) and receiving a broadband service in that way?
Any other suggestions?
Sorry for the rambling email and variety of questions, at my wits end!
Any help greatly appreciated,
