Now be fair, the BT openreach solution (maybe inc extension kit) offered as standard is one suited to most domestic situations. Most people have no knowledge of more specialized requirements, and do not want them. Those of us that do know about these things and want more complex solutions (myself included) just have to accept that we need to do a bit more to achieve them.
That said, I'm no huge BT fan adnd their NTE faceplate for FTTC is a little poor, as anyone who has tried to take off the front part will find out. The whole thing starts to fall apart because the screws hold the next part too.
