When we moved into this house, we took out a contract with BT for broadband. When we started to have difficulties setting it up, they then withdrew from the contract. I was told by a local BT engineer that there was a 'looped line' between us and the exchange and that it would be too expensive to bring in a specialist team to remove this.
I didn't question this further at the time but now I'm wondering what exactly is a 'looped line'. It affects quite a wide district, covering at least three villages.
Would anyone be able to enlighten me? Thanks
