We've now been in our current address for going on 4, 1/2 years and that illusive fibre availability date has always managed to stay a little bit ahead of us.
The current "due" date is 31 March 2017 for VDSL and more worrying the old fibre estimates bit has gone entirely.
Could any kind soul perhaps explain what VDSL is in layman's terms and if different, if it has any bearing on us ever actually being able to get fibre to our home?
I'll C&P the blurb i get on DSL checker if that may give ny extra information...apologies as the formatting will no doubt be stuffed.
