Can't say what the hold up is but I am over in Bolton on Dearne, near you. We run off the Goldthorpe exchange. The ECI Fibre cabinet was installed before we moved in to our house and we moved in October 2012. Fibre wasn't enabled until April this year. This was after the availability estimate we changed from July 13 to October 13 then Feb 14 then March 14 before eventually just getting enabled in April out of the blue. The enabling coincided with Barnsly council digging the pavement up to install new street light right where the cab was. So Openreach did some work while the street lights were being installed. (maybe it costs them less)
Anyway, while none of that is relevent to your situation, Cabs can be installed years before eventual turn on. A cab nearer to the center of Goldthorpe which has had a cab the same length of time is still waiting with an estimation of September 2014.
It's just sit and pray
EDIT: Probably going to take longer around here as there was no rush with the Digital Region SLU project already here.
