Any ideas why I can't get FTTC?

Hello,
I'm a bit confused.
My exchange (Stockton Heath) was enabled for FTTC sometime ago (September 2010)
Since then, the village is full of new cabinets with "Fibre broadband here now" stickers emblazoned on them.
However when I use the checker tool, it doesn't give FTTC as an option - which is confusing. Our neighbours, about 10 doors down have FTTC installed.
We live relatively close to the exchange, about 300 metres or so away.
Any ideas?
Thanks
Andy

It's possible that you're connected straight to the exchange rather than a street cabinet, if so that unfortunately means that FTTC isn't going to be available at the moment for you.

Sad
Thanks Chris.
So being close to the exchange seems to be a disadvantage this time around  Undecided
Any ideas what the solution is - or is it that FTTC will happen at some point for people connected directly to the exchange?

Little bit of news on Exchange Only lines here, not looking too promising I'm afraid
