It seems to me that the BT Wholesale checker
is very hit and miss, my brothers house shows as not having FTTC available, yet on the BT Infinity
site it shows that it is. Even BT told him he couldn't get it, but then when he said about the Ifinity site they checked another system and confirmed he could! This was a week or two ago and it's still the same now.
Anyway I've found that Openreach has a feed on Twitter
where each Monday the announce exchanges that have gone live.
Then it's just a matter of your cabinet being done, you can find your cabinet number here
. Filter by postcode, if it's not there then it was not scheduled when the spreadsheet became available.
I emailed Sam Knows about the Twitter feed and they said they are in talks with BT to try and improve the information available.
I'm also eagerly awaiting my exchange to go live, cabinets installed and RFS was 1-03-2012.
