Does the local authority have you in an area where their BDUK project is going to help?

Commercially unviable cabs will remain until some public money, or some of your own is spent to enable it.

If the OP lives as close to the exchange as they say - they will be getting a jolly good ADSL2+ service anyway one that many in the UK would die for.
When it comes to being in receipt of BDUK (ie taxpayers money) to improve broadband I doubt they will top of the priority list to be done "tomorrow".

Small PCP cabinets tend to be less viable to convert to FTTC because there won't be enough people taking it up.

Anecdotal evidence shows that cabinets of > 300 lines can get upgraded in the commercial leg of the rollout, while cabinets in the mid-200's are ignored.

BDUK subsidies usually allow the viability criteria to change, making small cabinets much more likely to be included - but there's still no guarantee: There are many other factors involved in the decision, presumably including the speeds you can already get.

Anecdotal evidence here has seen a cabinet of ~100 get upgraded.

How many properties does your cab serve?
