Due to being on the end of a very long copper line off a fibre cabinet, I`ve been stuck on 3-4Mbps download ADSL for years. On the openreach checker I noticed a few months ago that `FTTC is coming soon`. Great I thought, although oddly my neighbour across the road had `still looking for solutions` as his result. We are a small hamlet in scotland and all the other 5 neighbours had FTTC so figured my neighbour just hadn`t had his records updated. However, BT were up putting their white markings on the road the other day, so I figured I would check the openreach fibre checker again. We still show `FTTC coming soon` but my neighbour now shows `FTTP coming soon`!
So i`m happy for my neighbour but equally wondering why his shows up as `FTTP coming soon` whereas everyone else is still `FTTC coming soon`. We are all pretty close to each other on the same road. I`m about 50 metres off the road, and my FTTP neighbour is 50m off the other side of the road directly opposite. All other houses are around 300metres further down the road.
Could it just be the database not updated, or would they really give FTTP to one and FTTC to everyone else?
We are in Scotland, so I`m not sure whether this is R100 stuff or just standard BT deployment.
