Re: I assume Thinkbroadband are using the "can pay extra for fibre" definition of ("has access to"?

Here's an explanation from one very decent ISP:
"Note that there is an option of FTTP on demand shown on availability checkers. This is a service which we are not selling because of the unreasonable costs and terms."
Specifically, the FTTPoD product charges a monthly wholesale rental of £99+VAT - for a service which costs OpenReach *less* to maintain than a copper pair. This means that the retail price of any service based on FTTPoD would need to be at least £150 per month.
This is on top of the high initial connection cost, which means you've already paid for the cost of pulling or digging the fibre into your building.
