So I might not be getting Infinity yet.

The BT checker thingy said I could get it from March 30th.
Just checked it tonight and it now says 30th June!

Anyone else in this position?

Quarter end dates like that are just placeholders. It jiust means "not before". It's very common for such a slip to happen late in the third month.

I'm afraid you will find literally hundreds of such reports on here over the last couple of years if you have a week to spare looking for them.

Really?

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 30th June 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 40Mbps and upstream line speed of 10Mbps.


Interesting turn of phrase for 'not before'. Plans are of course subject to change but to say 'not before' isn't accurate. If FTTC is late BT are not enabling according to original plans but have had to amend them.
