VDSL - no BT broadband?
On Fri, 14 Jan 2005 17:55:08 +0000, Mark Graves
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)?
a) wait for BT to install "copper overlay" to provide a real copper
pair that will carry ADSL broadband
b) use an alternative such as cable
It is correct that BT do not support
broadband over fibreoptic and the person would have to change to cable
to get broadband?
the fibreoptic (TPON) connection you have is a way of connecting a lot
of phone lines cheaply to the exchange - often used for large estates
some way from the exchange rather than pulling massive copper cables
in to provide capacity.
ADSLguide.org.uk forums cover TPON
