Anyone has got BT Infinity (up to 40Mbps Fibre Optic) broadband?

I can get one as of 31 December, and BT says I can get a speed of 29 Mbps! Currently I can only get 2-2.5 Mbps ...

One question is, when BT rolls out the Fibre-To-The-Cabinet cables, will my existing ADSL automatically picks up? In other words, how this would affect the existing ADSL broadband connections?

when infinity becomes available it wont affect your existing connection at all. If your already on BT BB you can upgrade to infinity at no extra cost

Aren't the copper wires from exchange to street cabinets REPLACED with fibre optics? If so, I would expect the line signal quality would not be degraded as much as normal copper wires.

FTTC - Fibre to the cabinet, so yes they will replace the copper with fibre, however from the cabinet to the home will still be copper,

I had a call from BT last night offering this as they've just done our street.

Good, so if this happens, my speed of up-to-8Mbps package will automatically increase from 2 Mbps to, say, 6 Mbps; correct?

Expect those nice high speeds to be throttled to hell during peak times

The copper on the E-Side (exchange side) remains in place, as your pstn/phone line will still be delivered over this. The fibre will replace the copper to the PCP/Cabinet (BT Green box). The speed you will be able to receive will be dependent on the distance from your house to the PCP, as well as cable poundage, cable type (may be aluminium), also just because the cabinet may be a 100m walk from your house the cable may take a totally different route, adding some distance. You won't automatically be moved to fibre as like I said the copper remains in place.
