A little bit of a discussion this one more than anything, but my local exchange is set to receive FTTC by the end of 2015 (via the iNorthumberland BDUK project).
However, my main concern is that the street cabinet for our village is approximately 1500m away, which means we should expect speeds of around 15Mb/s - which isn't really superfast at all, and in fact, barely double what we get now.
I have spoken to the council but have not received any response from them and so sent a letter to my MP earlier in the week, will be interested to hear his thoughts on the matter.
Seeing as the stretch of road between the cabinet and the village is all grass verge, I would argue that the installation of FTTP wouldn't be significantly more difficult and would ultimately provide everyone with an actual 'superfast' connection.
This then brought me on to my next thought which was, a year or so ago I was told that our village would receive superfast broadband, but if the definition of superfast is 20 or 24Mbps+ and nobody in the village can actually get these speeds then where as residents do we actually stand with this? Perhaps more crucially, what is the real definition of 'superfast' in the first place?
