Mini cab on pole...what sort of speeds?

Had a new BT pole put at the bottom of th garden with a mini green cabinet on it....its not more than about 30 meters from the house.
Will they just do FTTP from that, or run copper for the last length?
What sort of speeds would I get from that?

I don't know but I assume that the mini green cab feeds a number of properties.
If this is the case it is probably be a subsidiary cab and if or when fibre is enabled it will use a new can adjacent to the master cab and it will be copper from there
I have a similar situation except the subsidiary cab in at ground level - the main cab is marked as 20 and the subsidiary can as 20/1
