IS this an actual thing? I only ask because in my new place there is BT internet access across phone wires strung from a pole to the house.
From what I have been told if there is more than 70 metres from the Virgin Media kerbside box then there is no chance of a connection.
I have however noticed in an adjacent street there are CATV manholes in the pavement. From the last manhole with minimal ducting across a communal garden, there is an approx 15m run to the telephone pole and from there a direct cable run to our house of approx 25 metres.
Virgin Media does not use telegraph poles or telephone wires ... their service is delivered via dedicated underground cables. I am located over 250 metres from the Virgin Media street cabinet and get perfect broadband speeds of 74mbps (I'm on the 70 mbps service). Virgin supplies its landline telephone service through a dedicated cable too ... absolutely nothing to do with BT/Openreach.
