Copper Overlay for Hampton Hargate, Peterborough

Re this article, TPON , we were presuming the poor folks of Hampton Hargate were getting remote DSlams. However, I read today they are getting copper overlay for the area.

When we were surveying the area, we discovered those who had copper overlay at the Hargate end of the estate were only achieving around 1Mb/s on 5km of cable from Peterborough Central exchange, and those in the Vale are getting around 2-3Mb/s from their adjacent exchange.

Now it turns out BT are not rolling out remote DSlams, but are continuing with the copper overlay which is absolute madness. Maybe there is business here after all....
