Fibre to cabinet distance
My local exchange is being upgraded to fibre. I have spoken with a few of the engineers over the past couple of months. The exchange is rural and is Exchange Only (Torranyard exchange code WSTOR). I was speaking to one of the engineers today about the cabinet. He said there was only one cabinet and it was at the exchange. This is 1635 meters away. As far as im aware the maximum distance is 1500 meters which gives speeds of 15 Mbp Down and 4 Mbps Up. Im presently get 8Mbps on ADSL Max. I live in Scotland and the Scottish government have Universal Service Obligation of 30Mbps (Westminster is also discussing this). It seems unlikely that I will get anywhere near 30Mbps with the set up BT have at present (obviously penny pinched to the maximum us usual). While there is still no Ready For Service date I wonder if you can offer any insights to what might happen or what I will need to do to sort out BT?
