Everyone has fibre optic but me! :(

I'm posting because everyone in Withernsea but myself can get fibre optic and i can't because i'm with you guys! now this is not a bad thing because i love Plusnet and i'm trying to be loyal and tell my friends and family they are idiots for going with kc/bt/talk talk, but i can't help but feel jealous that they have fibre optic for much much cheaper than im paying for my 8mb/s connection 0.7mb/s upload (£25 a month) when they are paying £15 and get 20mb/s download and 1mb/s upload with all their phone calls inclusive.
Now i know that plusnet are worth what i pay because they always give me awesome speeds and dedication but i still feel like missing out on the value/price and speed of fibre optic broadband Sad(
Is there any plans for plusnet to provide fibre optic service in Withernsea?Huh

Your exchange only has 20CN up to 8mb service available.

It isn't fibre, though. TalkTalk are listed as being a provider at the exchange, in which case it will be the LLU ADSL2+ up to 20Mb service, where TalkTalk provide their own kit at the exchange.
As things stand you are only able to get up to 8Mb with any BTwholesale service provider, such as PlusNet - the only way to get a faster connection would be to sign up with TalkTalk.

There are tuns of complaints of Talk Talk sales and retention staff not telling the truth.
I had one call me whilst I was out of contract with them telling me that if I didn't renew they would fix the line if there was a problem. Well that is part of the reason I switched to Plus Net.
