The (maybe) good news here is that the local drab olive box is only about 80 metres down the road.
Mine's across the road and one house down. Still drops 4Mb on that epic journey. ;p
Doesn't mean the copper runs direct to you. Could run up one side of the street then back down your side before going to your premises. This is one of the many problems with FTTN, the copper paths where laid out for ease of installation and to meet voice only requirements, not to bee useful for a data system that suffers major speed reductions with increased length.
In worst cases some people can see a node over the road or just around the corner, but their premises connects to a different node a km away. They lost the node lotto, big time.
