Just signed up, can't get Virgin phone due to lack of copper, does that mean I have FTTH?
Virgin cabled my street back in the summer, but was in contract with another provider so only had a salesman around today to sign up.
I signed up for the 200MBs service, but when I asked about the home phone number transfer he said that the couldn't do phone lines in my area. This actually isn't a big deal as I just assumed the phone line was part of the package, quite happy to dump the landline now as I never use it.
Just curious why though, the Virgin website mentions that in my area there is no copper lines for phone support, bearing in mind my street was cabled for the first time last summer so it's new cable, does this mean I am getting FTTH instead of FTTC?

Thanks for your reply.
I suspect I probably won't be better off from someone still on FTTC because of DOCSIS but was curious from a geeky point of view. Although one advantage is I guess I am pretty good support wise for big speed bumps in the future?
