Hi, I am looking at options to speeding up the rollout/upgrade of my local cabinet to fibre - I have previously been told my Exchange (Mosborough) has been upgraded to fibre & indeed houses not more than a 100yds away from my property receive fibre broadband, we are approx 2 miles from the exchange and receive 1.5-2.0 Mbps. My problem and that of my neighbours (approx 60 houses) is that our cabinet has not been upgraded and I do not think it is on any of the thus far published Openreach rollout plans (which I believe were upto 2014) - what I would like to know is this:-
1) Are there any new rollouts plans that do include my cabinet?
2) Are there any schemes to fasttrack a cabinet being upgraded, i.e. if there were contrbutions towards the cost by the inhabitants of those houses?
You could try contacting to your MP to complain about the lack of FTTC.
I found that BT take you more seriously if an MP gets involved!
Not promising, but probably worth a try.
