Which ones? The only change I've seen is Midland getting pushed back from the end of June to December.

Also Springfield (Hall Green).

It appears outside Springfield they were blowing some cable already! Barely two weeks since they started installing the cabinets.

Acocks Green, looks like they were doing some stuff up near the Swan

After asking for details on a few addresses/what's going on in the city centre, I just got an email back from Openreach saying rather uselessly:
I am sorry but as we are Openreach we only have access to our systems and they work on an individual exchange/cabinet, the info you can see on the Broadband checker will show you if Fibre is going to be available this fiscal year end of 2014 which will cover 60% of the UK the next phase if funded will cover up to 90% of the UK.

If on the Broadband checker you do not see FTTC or FTTP then the chances are that it is not in the current phase.

It looks like they've fitted cabinets to

Petersfield Road
Stratford Road (opposite Fox Hollies Road)
Hamlet Road
Lakey Lane
School Road (Junction of Fox Hollies)
School ROad (Junction of Finmere)
Springfield Road
Brook Lane (by Wake Green Road)

New cabinets appear to be being installed
Highfield Road/Robin Hood Lane
Cole Bank Road

There's a few other cabinets that haven't been touched yet including top end of Highfield Road, Green Road, and Stratford Road opposite Doctors Surgery.

I can't find any more cabinets though.

Cabinet Numbering system seems to go up to 27 for CMSPR.

Cabinets completed so far appear to be connected to power and the holes being filled in quite nicely. Can't hear any hum so don't appear to be live for fibre yet. It's only been a couple of weeks since I noticed this. And we've got all this spring up in no time.

Hopefully they're a bit quicker fitting the fibre.
