Check your address in the Address checker http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/ADSLChecker.addres... to see what's available. You will need an engineer to install fibre.

Ouch. Does the results page just say you're connected to the exchange?
If you have no cabinet, FTTC isn't possible.

It's possible. My area is showing as CS but it went live Yesterday (Sunday)

My cab is not on the upgrade list right now but others are done. Do you know which cab you are on?

I got beat by 2 mins to the local letting office on a flat that would get 80/20 yes I am sad I would move to get FTTC! ( and it's only a few hundred meters away!
