There's been a lot of activity over the past few months on the local cabinets in my village and I've been keeping a regular eye on the BT Wholesale checker. I got quite excited today when I saw that fibre products are now showing as being available.
Until I spotted the date -- 31 March 2014! This seems like an awful long way off, given that there have been promises from local politicians of "by September 2013", and the Openreach website is still showing "end of 2013" for availability.
Yeah, happens. Mine has been "3 months away" for the last 3 years, although I was are that was a load of nonsense, as for most of that time they had never even applied for planning permission.
Cabinets started to go up early/middle of last year, but none are active yet - they haven't run the fibre out of the exchange yet (although didn't stop them marking the exchange is active).
