Default Ordering New Line Specifically for FTTC

I want to order a new line at my place of work, specifically for FTTC.

We already have ADSL but checks on this line and other copper lines we
have say that FTTC is not available. So do checks on the postcode (we
are a school and have our own postcode).

Checks on lines at nearby premises are positive so I presume our lines
are routed via the 'wrong' cabinet which has not been enabled for FTTC.

Most of our voice lines come in on ISDN30 (I think - I'm an IT rather
than a telecoms specialist).

How can I order a line which is routed via the 'right' FTTC enabled
cabinet, or at least find out when 'our' cabinet is going to be enabled?

If you are a business large enough to have ISDN30, then you probably have
a business account manager of some kind in BT. I would get them on the case!

Why BT? Zen - which regularly wins awards - offers services for
businesses and large enterprises.


Maybe, but can they get a new line installed from a non-standard location?

The OP's question seemed more about getting BT to install a line from
a specific point, rather than about what ISP to go for once that was done.

You may never get it. Just because an exchange is fibre-enabled doesn't
mean that all cabinets will get fibre. And of those that do, not all
lines in any one cabinet will get it. We live in a 'normal' suburban
housing estate and our cab has 800 working circuits (cabs have capacity
for 1,000) but it's only a 200-pair tie cable to the fibre cab.

That's a 200 pair cable equating to 100 pairs each way so the math is even
worse than what you thought
