Absolute noob to all this networking business, been lurking on here for a while picking up knowledge from all over the place.
I live in Rotherhithe which is in the London Borough of Southwark and although i'm within half a mile of Canary Wharf, 3 miles from the City and 4 from the West End, we live in a total 'not-spot' when it comes to broadband.
Here's our story as a local community - http://broadbandse16.co.uk/
OpenReach doesn't want to entertain us, Hyperoptic only go for the big wins (Tower blocks and Apartments), Virgin don't answer our calls.. Even Relish have been refused an antenna.
Things are looking up though. I'll carry on if anyone is listening.
