How can I and my street get superfast broadband?

I am on the Ascot exchange, cabinet 107.  On ADSL2+ currently I get ~17Mb down and ~800Kb up, I believe this is similar for my neighbors.  The Superfast Berkshire programme has come to an end and alas we were not included.

Thanks @Starwire, this is perhaps an understandable and viable option for those more rural areas, such as the recent press about the Hebrides (see https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-49491794).  In my case our road is in the SL5 postcode, in Ascot Berkshire, a.k.a the home counties, less than 1Km from the exchange.  When we are surrounded by others that have superfast broadband available its hard to understand why our road is in the ~3.5% of the country that does not have superfast broadband availability.

I would say it’s more viable for you being surrounded by Fibre Aggregation Nodes than those in rural areas because it’ll be cheaper to provide you and your neighbours with FTTP.
