Can Anything be done?! [200kb/s]

Hello Forum Members/Moderators

 

I Live 7 Miles around the south side of Loch Rannoch (Dall Esate Area), currently Kinoch Rannoch (where the exchange is) gets around 1.2MB/s roughly 17Mb/s (Sneaky bits and bytes) and 7 Miles around the loch I get 200kb/s, i know all about the loss of speed due to the length of the copper cable, im just wondering if ANYTHING can be done about it, I have heard that fibre is coming to the village but unsure, basically i need some questions answered; 

 

Is there a Fibre Project actually coming to Kinloch Rannoch?

 

If the exchange has fibre but the exchange to the house cable is still copper will there beed a 'speed boost' to the copper cable?

 

Is there ANYTHING i can do to get better speeds?

 

Why the Hell am i Paying the exact same amount a month for someone who gets 1.2MB/s while i get 200kb/s?

 

Ive done all the checks, routers, filters, quite line ect ect....

That is all and if Anyone can help awsner these questions I thank you!

check here  https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html  

 

there is no plans to upgrade Kinloch Rannock exchnage from what I can see

if exchnage were upgraded it would make no difference to your copper conenction unless your local street cabinet was upgraded for fibre (new cabinet)

post the stats from your router but you say you have covered everything  at a distance of 7 miles I am surprised you get any broadband at all
