USO or FTTPoD?

A friend lives in a remote Somerset village. 1Mb broadband on FTTC, just so far from cab.
There is a fibre cable in an Openreach duct nearby and the caravan site next door has just installed "fibre" - not sure what but guess its a leased line.
If he requests FTTPoD is it likely to be cheap as there is fibre next door/nearby?
If he waits and requests USO will he likely get a better than 10Mb speed as they will deliver FTTP or FTTC via a new cab in the village/hamlet?
BTW, Openreach recently stated that all fibre is one network now, not separate fibre for FTTC and leased line.

Martin from Aquiss may know better but I think FTTPoD is priced from the nearest node not from where fibre passes at the closest point.

The USO is still a few years out iirc, some of the FTTC kit is able to do ADSL and ADSL2+ just needs different line cards which would give better speeds but BT are not interested in doing that

Methinks I would be round to the caravan site talking to the owners in a very polte manner! ;)
 
Yes, however that may not be possible for many complicated reasons.
I thought USO was going to be from 1Jan20?
Which is the best ISP to discuss FTTPoD?

Ofcom still say from the end of this year. Might be worth doing a desktop quote to see what the cost of fttpod would be but personally unless you have money to burn i'd wait for USO.
