Great. Well done the jobs-worths at the ASA crazy frown.
They were probably driven to it by the moaning minnies and whingers, no doubt including many of those posting to these forums/fora.

Exactly. A response to the whingers many of whom seem to inhabit these forums few of whom seem to understand the potential problems that might be encountered when rolling out such a massive project.

So far no planning application and the FTTC date has been removed from the checker. So for me and ~400 properties FTTC isn't happening any more.

My exchange is quite bizarre. It also got pushed back from March 2013 to June 2013. When I rang BT up in the middle of April about another issue with my broadband I asked the guy about the date and he said that the exchange has actually been enabled (It also says this on samknows, it also says its available in some areas but it isn't) also that the cabinet that will be serving myself work was completed on this in 2012 but said it should be available soon.

So I am not holding out hope for it anytime soon, I will continue in the slow lane (2.70 down and 0.28 up) and use my 3g dongle which is three times faster than my home broadband to download anything I need quickly.

Done give up just yet. The openreach checker has never given an FTTC date for my phone number but a cabinet has been Installed over the past 2 weeks. Various other cabinets have been installed around town as well but when I check phone numbers of friends and relatives it also says no date

After I finally worked out how to navigate the new Canterbury Council web site I have found that the location of the cabinet has been approved the second time with a 'better' location.

Approval

Plans

So I don't understand why my line/address has gone from the checker but it might only be a few months before the cabinet goes in which would be more in-line with estimates I've been given from OR.

The bit that confuses me more is how the council was able to refuse it previously but has decided it doesn't require prior approval now. Prior approval would be required in conservation areas only so unless the conservation area changed it should still need prior approval.

Given the Growth and Infrastructure Act, which took away the council's ability to reject cabinets in conservation areas, didn't come into law until 25th April it seems odd.

Oh well, hope it gets built sooner rather than later for you.

Another database change for Oakham but no new information. Previously postcodes would bring up an availability date of March 2014 whereas phone numbers didn't mention fibre. Now neither mention fibre. The cabinets are in. (Not all cabinets but there is one for my area). I saw last week the one round the corner was connected to power. I don't know if the fibre itself has been blown through yet. Can't hear any fans running inside it.

Can't check my number now as I've moved to Sky and the BT checker no longer recognises it.

On checking my address the March 2014 date has returned.

If the cabinet has been installed then it can't be long before they get it on line. Thing is BT are in no hurry and neither is the Government. The date for ~90% coverage has been put back another 2 years to 2017.
