From personal experience, they're the most honest and accurate version of the truth that's available.
Things can still be delayed, but this will be what OR is expecting to happen.

Well there you go then! There's hope for me! On the dates it shows the roadworks will last a long time but I highly doubt that, I assume it is between the two dates, so maybe infinity will be earlier than I expected!

Unless it means they'll start the roadworks, pack up, and finish another time.

Here is a photo of the cabinet where it clearly shows they've dug up the road and routed it somewhere, I would've thought this would be the power. Someone let me know why they needed to dig up the road.

I also spoke to a person on the BT Live chat in a few months ago who told me there was a snag with the cable on my cabinet and that I could get Infinity now if it wasn't for it, she was obviously lying because Live Chat employees always tell me they know nothing, she was just trying to be helpful.

Thanks for your help so far guys!

I don't think either of those two roadworks you posted are related to your cabinet, they make no mention of nga or bt works, one looks like it could be a high voltage cable.

It looks like that picture is going to have that trench dug out again, hence the paint.

You could have it dug up for the following.

Fibre optic cable
Tie cables to PCP
Power connection
They've made a mistake with any of the above - it happened to one of ours.

Lol, I doubt it. They aren't even be accurate when you're ordering a leased line. Throw BTw into the mix and it's not going to improve in accuracy.

I was wondering about the paint, that probably explains why the person on the BT Live chat told me about the the snag with the cable, maybe she was legit. If they'd installed it correctly I would've got fibre optic now, grr.

There is a cabinet much closer to my house which has been enabled for infinity, does anybody know any cases of people being able to swap cabinets? The telephone pole is on my driveway if that helps my chances in any way.

I think that in my case it is possible seeing as a house down the road from me is connected to the same pole but is on a different cabinet which is enabled, I'm not too sure how the phone lines work but I just want to know if It's possible, and even if It's expensive I want to know!

A "network rearrangement" to provide you line from an alternative would be very, very expensive.

The provision of two lines from the same pole from different PCPs seems odd but I am sure it will have happened before. It is possible that one PCP became full and a new one was provided (probably some years ago).

If you ordered a new line it "may" be provided from the closer PCP but wouldnt like to say whether there is a process to order?

Is this the link for network rearrangement? Doesn't seem too expensive: http://www.bt.com/pricing/current/Exch_Lines_boo/2-1...

That is the cost for moving just the final drop wire from last pole to the property.

You need to look at http://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/home/products/pricin...

This list may make you reconsider the not too expensive comment.
