BTOpenreach, which is responsible for managing access to BT's local UK telephone and broadband ISP network, has today announced that four rural telephone exchanges have been shortlisted to take part in a unique Fibre Only Exchange (FOX) trial.

BT doesn't care about its non-rural customers anymore.

I'm Virgin Media customer, I know for a fact that they don't use 100% fibre, their network is mix of copper and fibre.

It's only four exchanges ;'(

BT really need to trial Fibre in my rural exchange...

I get nothing but an 8Mb package and I only get 3.5Mb of that.

I will be on 40Mb by March next year. Currently limited to 2Mb, go Cornwall!

BT will bring fibre to our exchange in December, but there is no way I'm moving to them. Given how they lost that test case, a company can make them block any website they want with a big enough lawsuit.

What a pathetic comment. If you live in a large town in the UK you'll have access (if you want it) to cable internet anyway, if you live in a rural area there is no choice. Though I doubt this trial means BT wouldn't roll the system out across the whole network. It's more like at last someones doing something for the rural communities, we get little else, but I presume from your comment you're very young (or just naive) and no doubt wouldn't understand.

Surely this is about the telephone lines? If you have broadband now (at least in a rural area), then your internet will go through BT lines, whether you're a BT customer (telephone or internet) or not, it makes no difference who your ISP is?!?

I live in big city, and I have access to cable internet but I find it to be VERY unreliable and I cannot get good ADSL speed because I live very far from exchange (How strange if I live in inner part of city), even if I do, I'll get less than 1Mbps, proved by estimates from BT and neighbours have same low speed. What BT doing is focusing all of their operations on rural and ignoring the urban customers which make up most of their customers. What I am saying is that BT should have their focus on both rural and urban, I would have been happier if they were to make 3 FOX exchanges in rural and one in urban, seems like they don't.

You're one who is very naive thinking anyone who lives in urban city can get whatever one's wants.

I dont think that the block effects people with a LLU connection. I might be wrong though.
