I placed an order with cerebrus like many here and just had this back.:
Openreach advised that your address is covered by ongoing scheme PH3.1 East Sussex which is scheduled for delivery in June 2019.
Therefore Openreach recommendation is for this order to be cancelled, as FTTP will be available on completion of Ph3 build.
Please advise if you would like to cancel this FTTP On Demand order. You will be able to resubmit it in June as standard FTTP.
I donít really understand what this means. I have found no record or announcements of openreach laying or planing to lay fibre to my road.
It means exactly what is says - by June 2019 you'll have FTTP available for free.
The same thing happened to another forum user here ("boxst") - desktop FTTPoD quote was £18K+, but after paying for survey they told him FTTPoD was coming in March and they would not progress his FTTPoD order. And he's just got connected - yay
Since FTTPoD would take a minimum of 4 months anyway, you should do what Openreach recommend - cancel and wait.
Have you checked your postcode on roadworks.org? Even then, the lack of planned works doesn't mean nothing is happening - things often appear on here a week or less before they take place. Just keep checking it from time to time.
