Cutting into Fibre Optic line


[link to this post]
 
I currently only have access to boring old slow as a snail adsl2+.
However 100 yards away at the junction of my road and a main road Fibre Optic cable runs right past underground, I saw the team of Bt Openreach engineers fitting it all a year or so ago.
Question: can't my line and those of my neighbours within the cul-de-sac be joined/connected to this Fibre Optic cable to give us all FTTC or would a new cabinet be required.

Wish it was that easy. I have a pole and manhole right at the side of my gate 5 yards from my front door. Last year I got really excited to see a team pulling fibre at the manhole but it was going to a cabinet a mile away to provide FTTC to another area no benefit to me frown

plusnet FTTC

Aw mate thats terrible, what a tease BT are!
Wouldn't that be the point of connection for FTTP then?
All this BT star system makes no sense to me in 2020 they seem t be working to rules from the 1960s.

In 1969 man landed on the moon. Surely by now man can land on the sun?
Newton postulated theories of Gravity in the 17th century. It's about time these were updated to allow people to levitate.

Man supposedly landed on the moon lol but subsequent evidence suggests otherwise.
