The reason for doing the investigation was to try and find a pattern to explain those cabinets that have no FTTC or FTTP plans for my exchange (Worksop). As you can guess my cabinet is one of those (sods law).
What I found in completing this exercise is that the cabinets that do not have FTTC or FTTP marked split into the following categories:
1) Industrial Estates
2) Town Centre / Close to the Exchange
3) New estates
4) Really rural with spread-out properties
Mine falls into category 3. I've heard the theory that recent builds with underground cables are being left out of FTTC with a view to giving them FTTP in the future but my exchange already has a shed load of cabinets which have FTTP in column J.
The pessimist in me says that I might be stuck with my 2Mbs connection forever but the other cabinets that have been left out gives me some cause for optimism. Could it be simple as the roads not having been adopted or planning permission being different?
Anyone have any thought on this? (I can share my cut down spreadsheet analysis if anyone wants it.)
