I'm pretty sure I've got no hope but on the off chance anyone can offer any sort of help or advice you would be an absolute legend.
I live in North Leicester in a place called Thurmaston. Unfortunately Virgin Media is not available in my area although there a properties that are less than half a KM away from my home (straight line, not driving distance) that do have it available (I know because my parents live close, where I used to live).
The worst thing though is the fact that my exchange is a little far from where I live. I think something like 3.5KM and the average internet speed in my area is 0.5-1MB. Absolutely dreadful. Every ISP that I've checked can obviously only offer me what the BT line can handle so for now I'm with Sky as they gave me a decent offer last year. I am now on a rolling contract though as it's been over 12 months.
Our exchange also won't be getting BT infinity either, it's currently not in the rollout plans which is a major bummer and stumps me because there are loads of houses connected to my exchange, almost whole of North Leicestershire (all of thurmaston and syston I think) and most of us get shocking speeds with the exchange (I suppose the closest to the exchange (syston) will be OK).
To top it off, there is an exhange significantly closer (south of my house) that is due to be accepting orders from Jan 1st 2013 (according to BT infinity website).
So I suppose after all of that, my question is - can I be connected to that exchange instead?
And I suppose if you have any answers, then why has my current exchange been overlooked?
Many thanks in advance.
