I live in Chidham in W Sussex (PO188TB). My house is on the Bosham exchange, Cabinet 3.
The service I get it typically around 1-2Mbps which is frankly not good enough for me to work from home.
The Bosham exchange is due to be upgraded to Fibre at the end of September 2013.
When i check a number of cabinets using http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/
that are connected to the Bosham exchange, they typically state that FTTC will be available from 30-Sep-13 and give some estimate of performance.
However, when I check my address or any address connected to Cab 3, no mention of an FTTC service is provided, just an ADSL service.
I am wondering whether my cabinet will be upgraded when the exchange is upgraded. BT (my ISP) says fibre will not be available until Dec-14. However there is new green case right next to the old brown Cab 3. Does a new case imply fibre will be enabled?
Moreover, even if it is enabled, given that my house is 1.6km (by road) from Cab 3, will I see any improvement in performance? If so does anyone have any idea what sort of performance I might receive.
I have considered satellite broadband but latency is a big problem for my work on the internet so I think it is a non-starter.
