Found at least one cabinet enabled. Exchanges can be listed saying they are enabled if 6 or more cabinets are done. I'm sure it's 6. Might be wrong though. Anyway, here's the one I found.

I know it can be frustrating. The same kind of thing has been done under the Blantyre exchange where only 6 cabinets have been enabled and I know there is like 50-ish cabinets in that area in total. All of the other cabinets are down for end of March next year.

Someone else will no doubt explain that Openreach give a placeholder date of end of March next year but you'll find that the cabinet will be enabled way before then. Sticking in a date thats so far ahead is so that people can't complain. Last year Openreach were trying to put in dates for works to be as accurate as possible, but sometimes the delays slipped by a month. So rather than be wrong, they just put the date as far forward as they could.

You're making several mistakes by the looks of it. The where and when website is often out of date, and entering just a post code into the wholesale checker will never give reliable information.

Ues the wholesale checker via the full address option, you can enter just a postcode and then from the next page select a full address.

You should see my area - constantly shifting activation dates (going to be at least four years late now), and something like eight cabinets sitting unactivated for 18 months and counting.

My own cabinet is even worse - they book roadworks every month for the last two years, and have never once done anything smile

With regret' that's bt and open reach and they will stay that way until a law is passed to get them to fall into line

Open reach particularly like to think themselves better then the rest of society as the public canít even speak to them they like to think of themselves as untouchable
However, like all groups of people who think like that there days are eventually numbered in one way or another

Count yourself lucky. It seems to take months before anything happens round my suburban Birmingham area. There's no roadworks notices and no signs of anything happening. While there may be trunking issues, I can't figure out the delay other than the fact they just don't have enough engineers in the area and are working elsewhere.

They're putting in 200 metres of trunking here, 200 metres of trunking there, yet my cab seems left behind. I can't work out why it's so far taken them four months to do nothing....

the isp's seem happy with the arrangement also.

eg. the isp can blame openreach for line related issues very conveniantly, saying its out of their control etc.
openreach compensate the isp for no shows etc. whilst this compensation isnt passed onto the end user, since a no show is profitable to the isp why would they want to stamp that kind of thing out?
a line stuck on adsl instead of fttc is cheaper for the isp to provide. so why would they complain about that?
