Originally, all the exchanges I checked randomly had an RFS (Ready For Service) on the 1st March 2012.
I've just checked a load of them on samknows, and all the exchanges I checked previously now all say RFS 31st December 2012.
Funny thing is, I also had a 21CN RFS date for 2010 which also slipped back. It eventually turned into no plans to upgrade.
Check your exchange RFS for FTTC guys, see if it's also slipped for you.
