Thanks, I'll PM you now.
I'm in East Ayrshire. The HUBS projects looks great and I'll definitely investigate it. I've considered a wireless link, but thanks to some very tall tree lines, I've not found a suitable location with line of sight. Bridging two locations via a midpoint might be possible, but I'd still need to purchase a business connection at the endpoint and I don't know anyone who lives in a fibre-enabled area to approach about being my "host".
The wireless option is definitely something I've been considering. As above, I've had difficulty finding suitable endpoints or midpoints. The entire "viewshed" of the area is countryside, with presumably no access to fibre. So I'd have to set up a relay/midpoint, and then find someone/somewhere with access to FTTC/FTTP willing to host my endpoint.
You mention finding an endpoint that's within 100m of a cabinet. If I found such a location, how would I actually connect to the cabinet? Would I have to purchase a business connection in my name, but using the landowner's address? What if the landowner moves away/etc.?
That's why I thought installing a leased line might be the better approach.
