We are 2 miles from the exchange and unable to get fibre.
A nearby agri-business has had FTTP installed about 2 years ago. The 'man in the pub' reckoned that they had installed over 20 poles and it had cost him over 100K
On the road 50m from our house is a pole that supplies the above business.
The man in the pub also told us that it was an exclusive line and that we would be unable to connect to it.
Last week on our daily exercise there were two Openreach guys replacing a part of the copper line that supplies us and our neighbours. Chatting to one he said that we could certainly connect to it.
Does anyone with more knowledge than me know whether it would be possible to connect to this?
We currently use airband which gives us around 30Mbps but is sometimes a little unreliable.
