I'm on the Gourock exchange (01475 63****) which has been pegged as "Accepting Orders" for Fibre with BT's postcode checker Hooray !
However it talks about the first 10 cabinets activated, but guess which one I am ?
Correct. Number 11, and the place holder has now slipped from 31 May to 30 September.
I know the feeling. I was exciting last year but it wasn't my cabinet but just across the road had it. I been wait for a year before my cabinet finally accepted order when I saw they start work on new fibre cabinet last September roll down the fibre cable under footpath, then December, a new cabinet stood up and then February it went LIVE and accepted order. Another wait for 8 working days for FTTC activated on my line with an openreach engineer installed.
You were probably one of the first or there was not much work going on. I've had to wait 14 working days so far (that's without any time when I ordered BT on the 1st and cancelled on the 8th) and I chose last Friday (23rd) but as you know the PN system didn't process the order so I had to take the next one.
