FTTC EO

Just seen this news http://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2012/06/bt-preps-new-uk-superfast-broadband-cabinets-for-exchan... and my local exchange had no plan for FTTC for the future, however I got good speed of ADSL1 with 8128K and ADSL2+ 18475K and my exchange is only under 700k away.
Will I be able to qualify FTTC EO if I requested Plusnet ?

Hi there,
I'm afraid that's only something we can offer if the exchange itself has been fibre enabled, unfortunately yours hasn't as yet so this isn't something we could supply you. Sorry about that.

Re: FTTC EO

I'd be surprised if DBUK would want to use their limited funds for this sort of project.
They will be more interested in getting those with next to no service a half decent one.
Lokking at the prices page is interesting - not seen that one before.
Say new cabinet 100 yards from exchange.
New ducting @£100 /meter       £10000
New cable @ £10/meter            £    1000
New joint box                              £  3000
Say new cabinet same            £    3000
So thats a new cabinet E side sorted for £20K - oh + VAT makes it  £25K
Now to re-direct the D side EO lines to the new cabinet...............
