Re: moving house with a slow telephone exchange

if that is distance by road then line length is probably longer.  there is no way to reduce line length to increase your speed.  An upgrade to 21CN will make no increase in speed due to your line length.  only way for improvement is infinity

Don't get excited about the prospects of infinity unless the fibre is to be installed to a street cabinet much closer to you than 3km. My line is 3km to the cabinet and BT will not consider providing this service.
