It can be along process. Look around your streets for the BT green cabinets. You are looking for new buddy cabinets appearing next to or near them. Once that happens it takes about a month for the checkers to update and you can then order. You may be lucky and get FTTC for end OCT or if not you will just have to wait.
I got my neighbors to use the BB checkers to drum up business. Do not know if that made any difference or not. Its just gone live on my estate in Sep when the Exchange went live in Mar/April.
