My line is connected directly to the exchange. Will I be able to get superfast broadband?
Most homes and businesses have a green cabinet somewhere nearby which provides the phone and internet connection. Exchange Only (EO) lines do not go through a green box and are connected directly to the local telephone exchange. Usually they are either very close or very far away from the telephone exchange. Leicestershire has a high proportion of EO lines.
BT is planning to undertake improvements to its network to enable EO lines to benefit from superfast broadband. This will require the installation of new cabinets and the rerouting of existing cables.
