The total line length is 6.1km. As yet there are no plans to provide FTTC at my local exchange. I am just wondering what difference it would make to me if BT did decide to upgrade the exchange and enabled the cabinet that supplies my house. I would not get the 15+mb/sec that most FTTC users get but my and my neighbours connections could be improved.
Of course what I really need is Fibre to the Pole (or whatever it should be called.) Do you know if BT are testing any suitable equipment? - of course they might want to keep such information confidential.
I found this graph which compares the various forms of DSL. According to the graph VDSL and VDSL2 have similar distance/speed characteristics once you get to 1500m
