I live in a new housing estate in Corby, NN18 8 postcode area. It's a large development of new houses that have been going up for years and by the looks of things, look set to continue. Roads have recently been adopted around our area, but broadband is still woeful. The best I've ever managed has been 2MB download, generally it lingers around the 1MB. iPlayer and low quality Netflix is sometimes manageable provided we do nothing else online at the same time, otherwise even that isn't possible.
I'm told it's due to copper lines to the houses - The local exchange (Great Oakley) is enabled for fibre optic but nobody offers a service. Virgin Media flatout told me via email the area is 'too big' for them to consider.
Can anyone suggest anything? I've looked at satellite (too expensive) and MiFi (poor coverage, capped usage). Short of moving house, is there anything anyone can suggest to get a decent speed (at least 6MB up)?
