Sounds similar to my area of Birmingham. We are well served by Virgin Media, however larger Openreach cabinets are upgraded to fibre - my smaller cab (and a few others) are uneconomically viable to upgrade.
Because my cabinet is smaller it's probably never going to reach a viable level - and you'd have to think why would anyone now decide to have ADSL at 5-6mbps when you can get Virgin. If competition existed then people would move away from Virgin - but the bean counters at Openreach aren't willing to invest at this moment.
Not a lot you can do about it sadly other than get the local community to join up and self fund - I have asked my local councillor if he can attempt to drum up some interest (maybe get the the area to register interest on Openreach's website).
I've dropped Clive Selley an email, but he's busy in meetings with limited access to email. Currently trying sarcasm as my next step to get Openreach to do something.
Current on Zen, getting around 5mb down - .8mb up
Exchange is Fibre enabled, Cab not economically viable to upgrade - though 'Now Exploring Solutions aka we want someone else to pay for it.'
