This doesn't help, but my clarifying what you are thinking about might.
At any given fibre-enabled cabinet the people connected to it will only be offered FTTC or FTTP. They cannot choose. FTTC and FTTP are the same retail price
However, there is also FTTPoD, which is only available to people connected to an FTTC-enabled cabinet. And even then, it is subject to survey, not a given that any particular premises can have it.
If you cannot get FTTC then you cannot get FTTPoD. The checker to use (assuming your Sky connection is LLU) is this one
. Unless you are in a BDUK, B4RN or similar deployment area, in which case that tends to be updated at the last minute.
As you say, your colleague must be getting FTTPoD, but that means his cabinet is FTTC-enabled already.
