Default VDSL - no BT broadband?

"Mark Graves" wrote in message
Can someone explain the options for a person who wants to go broadband
but has fibreoptic cable instead of copper (I think it's between the
street cabinet and the exchange)? It is correct that BT do not support
broadband over fibreoptic and the person would have to change to cable
to get broadband? Seems a bit odd if BT themselves installed the
lines! Or are there other ISP's that support fibreoptic connections at
VDSL speeds?

It is kinda funny, when they say they can't supply broadband because your
line contains fibre optics. fibre optics is pefect for broadband! wake up

They should start rolling fibre to every street cabinet otherwise we're
going to start falling really behind in terms of speed. at least to all the
new street cabinets and start deploying VDSL! But then again, BT aren't
using a fraction of the ADSL specification. t t t

It's not suitable for ADSL though!

The line is probably provided over what BT calls "TPON" is this in
Milton Keynes?
