      I wish they would take away the very small cabinet in my road and replace it with a much larger capacity one.

      When I was first connected, I was literally getting 80/20, but that only lasted about a week and now I only get around 62/17.

      Why a larger one would just mean more VDSL circuits on the cabnet and potentially even more crosstalk.

      Roll on vectoring that should make a difference.

      Well, fibre has not been as good as I was expecting.

      I am around 200 mtrs from the exchange and a bit less from the cabinet, so was expecting more.

      It's fortunate that your line isn't connected directly to the exchange or you would be stuck with ADSL.
