You don't get a choice between FTTC and FTTP. Your cabinet doesn't in fact get upgraded, but is just labelled as FTTP to designate the lines connected to it.
FTTC involves a second cabinet being installed close to, and connected to, the existing one. That second cabinet merges the fibre feed from the exchange onto the copper feed from the exchange to the original cabinet and on to the premises. See my fuller explanation
During next year there will be a new product, "Fibre on Demand". That will allow people on FTTC enabled cabinets to get a direct fibre feed, (so FTTP), from that cabinet's fibre partner. It is expected to have a rather high installation cost.
In your case it's irrelevant as your cabinet will not have a fibre partner.
You will only get a move to FTTP if you upgrade your package with your ISP, or migrate to another ISP on theirs. See my earlier link.
