The 3 month slots are holding dates only, they are not go live service dates.
Openreach works in 3 month slots for their year, any work not completed in the first 3 month slot moves into the second and so on.
Their are a few nearby exchanges in your area with a go live date of September on the Openreach where and when site, your cabinet is very likely one of the first to be installed, just a case of waiting till September and seeing if the exchange does go live along with your cabinet.
Only Openreach will know when orders will be able to be placed and that information is not shared with the public.
I would check the BT wholeslae asdl checker once the exchange has gone live, as it will tell you if your cabinet is live and taking orders.
The other way to know if a cabinet is live, is listen to the vents to hear the fan's moving.
