At first one thinks what luddites the local councils are, then you read that BT refused options such as underground cabinets etc, which are very common in both the US and Europe in sensitive historic areas.

For those not aware, BT Infinity is BTs FTTN program, similar to Telecoms cabinet program, however due to the population densities the cabinets are much closer (typically 600m coverage radius's) with VDSL2 as the primary deployment.

Kengsongton and Chelsea - some of the richest areas in the country nd the residents won't be able to get anything better than ADSL1

reminds me of Paratai drive having a large number of port waiters a few years ago


ETA: Oh, I see they can get Virgin cable already. whoops

Seems logical to me, focus on the areas that will let them install without hassle etc, why spend more on undergrounding things etc when you can spend less and get it installed in another area?

They probably have targets to hit with the number of properties it is available to, and wasting time on council compliance on one area is not gonna help.

To me it makes sense. Leave problem areas until Britain is ready for some FTTH projects where you don't need as many cabinets and could potentially place cabinets in better spots.
