Confusion as to when my exchange will actually become live for FTTC/P

Hi All,
Does anyone know how to checkf or certain when my exchange will be activated for FTTC/P - according to the spreadsheets on http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/ NESAC exchange is taking orders however when i cheched last month it was on "Comming Soon List for september with SamKnows now showing "Enabled in Some Areas".
It is a bit confusing especially as i live a stones throw away from the exchange.

Well this would explain why no green cabinet on the street however we never had one assuming possably due to the exhange being on the 5 mins walk away!
Any way of finding for sure if there's any forcast date?

Re: Confusion as to when my exchange will actually become live for FTTC/P

Hi guys,
Just to clarify, there's no cabinet information at all based on OP's number.
@StormWarden - It's not looking great. Usually on the rare occasion that there is a forecasted date, the information would be there on the DSL checker.
Whilst SamKnows is useful, BT Wholesale's DSL checker is the only true system that will dictate whether we (or any other ISP) can proceed with an order.
Sorry that it's bad news  Sad

Re: Confusion as to when my exchange will actually become live for FTTC/P

Thanks All.
Thought that was the case, on the off chance i have had a word to some our broadband support guys and they are comming up with different stories as to why this is the case one of them being is that they will ONLY roll out FTTC/P to peoble who connect to green boxes as the DSLAM's cause interference to the exchange equipment...
Not sure how true that is but i have emailed Digital Durham for advice as they are sponsoring the rollout.
If this pans true then they have rulled out a good 3rd of my village.
