How can I fnd out when my exchange will be enabled?

I'd love broadband, however as yet my exchange isn't enabled. The BT lady was very helpful but, couldn't shed any light on it at all. She recommended I go to the BT corporate website, but it wasn't much help either.
I've heard there's a site where I can register my interest, anybody know of it?

http://www.samknows.com/broadband/checker2.php is best. Simply enter your postcode and phone number.

If you look down to "BT Wholesale ADSL/SDSL information" and look at "ADSL enable date:", it should tell you when your exchange is gonna be enabled. If not, post back here and we will tell you how to register your interest.

Thanks for your reply. I went to th ebroadband resource and got this result.
"Congratulations, you are in a broadband enabled area.
The following services are available in your location:
Telewest Blueyonder cable"

However that's wrong.. There's no cable in this area. Never has been and probably never will be. I live in the country, there are three houses here and the nearest town is 7 miles away.
But all's not lost, I delved deeper and saw this
"Your exchange is not yet enabled for ADSL, but a 'Ready For Service' date has been set for it. You will be able to receive ADSL broadband by the 7th of July 2005"
I'll have to get in touch with BT I suppose?

You have to wait a couple of days I think til BT actually update the info on their wholesale checker.

Ok, my exchange has now been enabled. The BT ADSL checker says this,

"Your exchange has ADSL broadband.
Our initial test on your line indicates that you may be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides 512Kbps or 256Kbps download speed. However, due to the length of your line, an engineer visit may be required, who will, where possible, supply the broadband service. "

What's my next step please?

place an order for broadband with someone like plusnet then ^^ doesnt look like you will be able to get 1 or 2mbit but hey even 512k is SO much better than dial up.
