Best option get VDSL install at nearby house that is close to cabinet. Wireless link to you.

1.How does that work?
2. How do I go on doing this what do I need?
3. What speeds will I get?

Talk nice to someone at the beginning of Parker road, or that section of West Coast road. You will need line of site to their property. Setup some Ubiquiti gear between you and them.

You could potentially be paying for their internet if you reached an agreement like this, but a property can have 2 dsl connections so you would probably have a connection each.

Yep, probably - but data is relatively cheap these days, so I see this as win/win.  You get much faster internet, but may have to pay a little more to accommodate their data usage.  They get free internet.  The thing that would get me nervous if I was the account holder though would be the skynet (three strikes) law.
