    It did, but it was somewhat hampered by an inflammatory subject and
    generally bad phrasing, I think most people assumed the O/P was
    complaining about receiving slow FTTC service.

    Same here - I didn't see any trenches in the ~3km from the exchange.
    However, at the same time there was a lot of work, including trenches, for
    the ~8km from exchange to the nearest town, so I assume that a bigger pipe
    had to be installed. I don't know how the 2 lines (ex. - cab. v ex. to town)
    would compare.

    The OP has apologised for a badly-worded post. To me, it could have
    been interpreted either way, which he realises.
