Well, the Kellys engineer has left and I now have a nice, spanking fast FTTC install through Zen.
I don't know if ours is the first cabinet live in Forres (NSFRS), but I'm the second user live on our cabinet (the first person was the appointment before me). The engineer even moved the master socket and put the modem where I wanted. It's amazing what an offer of a real coffee can do...
Currently getting results on the TBB speed tester of 61.17Mbps which I'm very happy with - will see how it goes over the next few days.
