Could be a distance from the exchange problem, ok if
you live next door to the exchange.

One might start to suspect that increasing uptake of BB
might be part of the problem. Like an immediate post war
200 pair PVC street cable, with a 1 foot twist pitch, is
going to give cross talk problems when half the lines
are carrying high frequency BB carriers. Most of the
street cabling was installed (and has since deteriorated)
long before BB was ever thought of, back the days when
300 baud acoustic couplers were hot new technology.

BT's failing was not to capitalise on owning the ducts,
they could have pulled in fibre to the Curb, while the
competition had gangs of Irish navvies laying green
ducting, and creating rush hour gridlock in the process.
BT also had, at the time, a monopoly on blown fibre.

I see trouble ahead, not to mention not enough,
non-interfering Wi-fi channels, so everyone starts
jamming each other.
