Yup mine changed from 31st March 2011 (after previously changing to that from the 31st Dec 2010) to the 26th Jan 2011 ... so good to see they shaved a couple of months off their revised date after putting it back 3 months.

Just to forewarn you though, your installation date could be a couple of weeks after that based on my experience.

I ordered mine the morning of the very first day it was available on the 26th Jan and the first available install date was the 10th Feb, so expect to wait a couple of extra weeks for a working connection after the RFS date if that's the norm, which it seemed to be for my cabinet from what others posted. Maybe install dates have shorter lead times in other areas but best to be prepared for a wait and hopefully have a nice surprise.

My mate had his order processed in Leam on Friday past (4th) and has an install date of the 14th, so less time than ours (maybe because we ordered on the busiest day??)..

The date will be the earliest a technician is available. They have plenty of other work to do and that will be scheduled in already plus time has to be allocated for business repairs (same day, next day, next working day &c) so you will be added to the queue which could be 10 days long. It is unlikely that anyone will get an install date less than a week - especially as BT (or teh ISP) has to order and ship teh router direct to you which can take 2 or 3 days.

Yep, it's true, the first 12 cabs in Chesterfield go live on 16th February, sadly my cab isn't getting FTTC at all. I'd expect to see more cabs going live in Chez over the next few weeks, same as Mosborough, that went live last week. Expecting to see Dronfield get the first dates in the next few weeks.

Only 12 going live next week? It seems a strange way of doing things, from a few post-codes I've checked there is no order or pattern to it, a cabinet just up the road from me is live on the 16th February, but mine is still 31st March. I'm pretty sure all of them near me are finished.

Seems strange just 12, but I know ours hasn't been touched for over a month now, so it's definitely ready, where as one in Calow (near work) was only put in last week and still has a big hole round it.

I'm not on the Chesterfield exchange but the same happened to me. Date changed from 30th September 2010, to 31st December 2010, to 15th January 2011 and then to 31st March 2011. People I know at work who live very close to me and are on the same exchange as me got connected on 17th January. Mine still said 31st March.

Then one day at the end of January mine changed to 3rd February 2011.

I just *happened* to be online at midnight as the clock ticked over to 3rd, checked my number on the BT site at about 5 seconds passed midnight and my availability date had changed to "Now" so I ordered Infinity.

Its being fitted next Thursday, 17th

I just hope it turns out to have been worth the wait !!

I didn't think they would fit anything under 15Mbs?
