Can somebody please tell me why the street cabinet for my line is 2 miles approx away when I have 2 other cabinets within 0.2 miles. My post code is PE14 8EB and according to openreach my cabinet is Wisbech 16. I have a cabinet Wisbech 4 actually between my home and cabinet 16 going down the same supply route. Why cant Openreach get their house in order. I can confirm my infomation is correct by receiving an email from Julia Cummings BWA613 Dated 23/04/2013. I want to be able to get higher than 1.5mps that is the max now from a fibre enabled cabinet
could it be that when your phone was installed that the other cabinets did not exist? the probability of openreach redirecting your phone line is extremely remote unless there is a problem with the line - not just slow broadband.
you may be able to get it changed if you are prepared to pay the cost which could be in the £1000's
Basically it comes down to cost it would cost a fortune to move every person over to the closest cabinet and exchange. In the past these things didnt matter when it was just voice. So long as you have a line which fits the USO(Universal Service Obligation) there is very little you can do I'm afraid other than wait for FTTP to finally reach your area.
