Home Forums General Discussion Fibre Broadband Re: Re: Fibre Broadband


Hi Frank,

Thank you for your very useful overview.

As we are all believed to be on Exchange Only lines, i.e. connected directly to the Bermondsey Exchange and not through a street cabinet, pending any future roll-out by BT Openreach of their so-called “network rearrangement” plan in our area, whereby a fibre-enabled cabinet would be installed between the exchange and the property, I think we can disregard any solution that involves a fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) solution, as far as I understand it.

Also, because of the (relatively long) distance between the property and the Bermondsey Exchange, advertised speeds for traditional broadband are very academic in most cases; e.g. we are achieving our current 0.5meg on an “up to 20meg” plan.

Kind regards
