    Have I got this right, a group of villages forced BT to Fibre to the Cab in the village, and then because BT wouldn't offer any services, they have basically wired up their houses to the cab and started reselling? How can they offer all these speeds yet BT can't? pshyically HOW are they doing it.

    And if so, can I do it given my cab is abotu 5 metres down the road.

    No £0.50p broadband tax = no money to invest infrastructure in areas that doesn't look like there will be enough profit to finance it themselves (regardless of who the vendor it)??? :rolleyes:

    a community in Sweden deployed FTTH about 10 years ago, there was a website detailing it, they actually ran the fiber, dug up the street etc
    and everyone had 100mb internet, scalable to 1000mb or more

    it was pretty cool stuff back then, glad to see more people jumping on the bandwagon
    now if only there were neighborhoods full of 'the cool kids' who would want to go ahead and do something like this in my town ;)
