Hi guys. Not sure if this is the best place to post this question but here goes.
We have had terribly slow broadband for as long as i can remember, done pretty much all we can our side of things (router wiring etc). We heard our exchange was getting fibre so we got our hopes up in finally getting some better internet.
Our exchange recently went into the 'accepting offers' stage and we tried our provider talktalk and we cant get it. Now from what i understand its probably our cabinet causing the issue? There has been openreach vans around our local csbinets for a while.
After some digging on the interent i found the bt wholesale checker and thats where i got lost.
Was hoping someone could tell me what our situation is and if we will ever get fibre broadband?
I posted what i found on wholesale checker below

For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage.
Throughput/download speeds will be less than line rates and can be affected by a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.
