At one point BCC tried to fund fibre for the Jewellery Quarter area (think it was there - might be digbeth, anyway...) But BT and Virgin took them to court as they are the Fibre providers for the area. So maybe BCC are getting fed up trying to help BT/Virgin.
Nice, anyway I hope you can get sorted. I'm connected to an uneconomically viable cabinet - but I can get a badly congested Virgin service. It is frustrating living inbetween well connected areas (200m either way is lovely Openreach Fibre). I'm speaking to a few residents about self funding - but the idea of spending money for a service that might get upgraded in the next network tranche of work is hard to argue against.
Exchange is Fibre enabled, Cab not economically viable to upgrade - though hanging on the carrot being dangled - 'There are projects to be initiated in 2017, however, we do not have a particular timescale at this moment.'
