I understand the UK government is hoping to provide fibre optic cables right to our homes, instead of here in Hastings now only to a WiFi box often hundreds of yards away. But most of our phone lines in this areas are on street poles. 


Are BT likely to replace old copper wire lines with fibre optic cable if so will it be above ground as at present or below ground?

Well, we can all hope but I am not holding my breath !  Where I live we are still waiting for fibre to the cabinet. I would have thought fibre would have to be underground as it is relatively fragile.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
