On OpenReach's roll-out document, our exchange (Brookwood, Surrey, THBO) was down for Sept 2010 and changed in last month's to "accepting CP orders now" (and is still that status in yesterday's updated document).
The local cabinets are in, and have had power since mid-October.
Until last week, the availability checker had reported a cabinet date of March 2011 (and ADSL2+ of May 2011). Last week those 2 dates were brought foward to Dec 2010 and Jan 2011 respectively (and all dates from the "phone-number" variant of the checker).
Today, I seem to have drawn the short straw. The FTTC date has now gone back to June 2011, and the ADSL2+ speed has dropped down to 9MB. Hardly worth getting excited about...
Some phone numbers have gone one step worse... they were reported to actually have FTTC availability last week, and they too have gone back to June 2011.
The real question is... are these real dates that have been put back? Or where they placeholder dates because they didn't know... and now the default placeholder has changed from Dec 2010 to Jun 2011?
Frustrating though, to not have one reasonable straight story.
