Yes, the Openreach checker is right. Unfortunately, you're too far from the cabinet to order FTTC.
Why is this the case? I’m within the 5 mile radius? Would there be no Vdsl signal at my distance. I have a friend which is 6.5 km from the cabinet and gets 5mb, which is an improvement on my 3. I am 4.5 km from the cabinet. I know my parents is 5km and they are getting 8mb. Thanks for the input 👍
I’m only enquiring as and extra couple of mb makes a big difference when you only have three, would hate to think I’m missing out 😁
Speed vesus distance.
The actual cable distance may be further than that, as the cables do not run direct.
Openreach tend not to offer fibre if the speeds are similar to/slower that standard broadband. Fibre (VDSL2) drops off quicker over distance than ADSL, so even though the line length maybe similar between both technologies, the speed you'll get with VDSL will be potentially much lower than ADSL. Hope that makes sense. 🙂
