Ok so bad news. You won't be able to get FTTC.

GOOD NEWS! Most of the properties within your postcode are served by virginmedia. You can get up to 100mbps at most of the addresses.

So this is probably your only option at getting faster speeds.

Definitely consider virginmedia as it's probably the best option speed-wise at your current location

Out of interest what speeds are you currently getting

In reply to a post by ukhardy07:
If you are connected straight to the exchange then NO Fibre broadband.

It's called FTTC (Fibre to the cabinet) because the fibre is installed in the local cabinet.
If there is no local cabinet between you and the exchange then there's no possibility of getting it.

The line MAY have routed via a local cabinet originally. However now that the engineer has connected you via that terminal box, it may no longer go via the cabinet.

The original route was probably different to the new one.

Regardless they wont change this back now that it's been done. What's the probability % showing as on the websites you were looking at such as http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php

Incorrect.

BT have stated they will consider installing new cabinets for exchange-only lines, where economically viable.

Maybe because by now ... i have find this:
http://www.superfastcornwall.org/frequently-asked-qu...

I am in an enabled area but I cannot get superfast broadband. Why not?

2. You may be served by what is known as an 'exchange only' line that is connected directly to the telephone exchange without an intervening green roadside cabinet. Regulations do not currently allow the technology used to deliver superfast broadband from the cabinets to be used in the exchanges. However, the first trial of new technology to support 'Exchange Only' lines is taking place in Cornwall so we are in the process of developing a solution.


Dont know how old is that info but probably will know the next few months

This is from a news article 10th may on this site,

Update 1:30pm: We asked Openreach about the issue of Exchange Only lines back in April 2012, and received a response regarding those lines or groups of lines run directly from the exchange, which is usually those closest to the exchange or new estates located further from the exchange. Openreach has said that where technically and economically feasible they will provide either a FTTC (via new cabinet) or FTTP service, this is done on a case-by-case basis as the roll-outs progress. We believe pressure to hit the 66% figure as soon as possible, means these areas will mainly be waiting until 2014, or for the various BDUK projects to start producing results.
