Broadband via overhead cable


[link to this post]
 
Not technically minded but as we have our BT telephone line and broadband supplied by and overhead cable, can anyone please advise if it is possible to get fibre this way?

thanks for the reply. Fibre is not in our area yet but my question really meant " is it possible to get fibre on an overhead line"? Tried to find the answer online but no success.

Correct, fibre is mostly delivered (or at least will be) by overhead means at the moment. I've not been down to Cornwall for example but I imagine most of the thousands of FTTP lines there will be overhead.
