I was originally planning pfSense however plans are subject to change and I have a better solution.

I was originally going to have an EC-V behind the pfSense however this way around I've another masterplan I can complete - hosting another instance in the cloud and having my own on-demand VPN service plus a subnet of public IPv4 address space I may consume as I see fit in a DMZ.

A provider is happy to host a VM for me in their Geneva DC and will mostly charge me a base VPS fee alongside bandwidth charges at cost.

It's simpler to configure it via the EC-V and have it doing everything.

Well, it's simpler for me - YMMV.

As the Wiki article states twisted pair was invented by Alexander Graham Bell. Specifically it appears in his telephone circuit patent of July 19 1881, which shows two wires twisted together and labelled 'a' and 'b'. Sounds vaguely familiar...

Thank you muchly kind sir!   Yes that is my cab. 
They put one on the cab a couple of streets up too.  Openreach seem very active in this area atm. 
As to the cab being busy...  that could well be why my sync speeds have been so drastically affected by cross-talk.   
Hope they move over to FTTP asap so at least some move off the cab  (Not sure yet if I will be getting fttp due to budget and priorities)

Yeah .... 1400 cross-connections in your Cab, kitz.  :'(

I wonder if you applied a bit of 'spin' with the ISP(s) or even Openreach themselves, regarding a FTTP connection once the roll-out finishes ??

I'm sure a well-read site like this could be seen as a plus, with regard to advertisement/feedback from the site owner ?? My old man always used to say ... "If tha' dunt ask, tha' dunt get' ....  ;D

Sorry if wrong forum guys.
I've just learnt what latency means etc etc. :-[
And wondered how to do the test for my Talk Talk BB, so I can enter it into Kitz's thread, to make me look intelligent?  :D

Yes that's the right number.

Is it a fibre only property or is there a copper line also?

AIUI by default the copper pair is used for voice if 1 exists.
FVA is only needed in fibre only properties (new builds).

Many of BT's FTTP customers use neither FVA via the ONT's telephone port or digital voice via the hubs telephone port. They use PSTN via the master socket.

Digital Voice via the hub might still be in the trial stage?
They don't seem to be accepting signups to the beta at present.

Openreach have announced a stop-sell of FVA products from March 2020.

1 of the most recently announced OpenReach ONTs doesn't even have an ATA port.
