The BT Wholesale checker (here
) would normally tell you that FTTC was available for your line, but add a prefix (with a date) to say that it wasn't there yet. Its important to use a phone number rather than postcode or address, to get the best information.
The date would (likely) have been a placeholder, specifying end-March, June, September, or December - in this case it would have read end-Sept last week, and recently changed to end-December.
Neither would have been true, as the date would normally then change again, around a week before it actually went live. However, some places just change from a placeholder to a "live now" indication (ie no date at all).
If the fibre connection is the last step, then it might go live within 2 weeks or so of the end of the roadworks - assuming the subsequent fibre pull/blow happens quickly.
Or there might still be other issues, such as power, delaying things further.
Best case: Another 2 weeks
Bad case: Another 3-6 months
Really terrible case: Another year.
