If it does then that means fibre coming here will once again bend back on itself like our lines do?
Does it matter? The fibre could go via Glasgow, Norwich, Dover and Bristol, and you would still receive the full data rates.
i know what ducting is, just in case it makes me sound thicker than I am
i thought that it would via the existing network.
Fibre uses light, so even fibre have limitations, I presume there are boosters along the length to make sure that it is to its full strength.
@kitcat, i am on about FTTC, we are suppose to have our exchange updated to FTTC in June and I was chatting to a neighbour about it and they seemed interested, but was a bit lost on how it would work since our broadband here is not that good.
Our cables goes from the exchange, doubles back to the old Ex-exchange by our Cathedral and then comes back up to us, so about 2 miles in total. via road, ok so the lines don't always go via road, but it gives you a idea.
i told him that it would be fibre to the cabinet and that the distance from the exchange should make no difference, just the distance from the cabinet.
A BT open reach engineer i was chatting to at a mates place last week told me the cabinet that I was likely to be connected to, which would be ok, apart from the fact it is not there
I am still looking about going Wireless if the price is right.
