FTTC availability - frustration!

Wiltshire Online postcode lookup says that our cabinet is accepting orders and on the same site the exchange area update says
Quote
Mere
Survey work is due to start in early/mid 2015 and work in this exchange area is due to finish in early 2016.
**NEWS**
Survey work in this exchange area has begun.
** NEWS **
Work is progressing well and we anticipate Cabinet 5 to be ready for service by Spring 2015.
** BREAKING NEWS **
We have made excellent progress and now have Cabinet 3, Cabinet 4, Cabinet 5 and Cabinet 6 all live and ready for service.  Please check the Wiltshire Online postcode checker here to see if your postcode is now live.

I'm on cabinet 3.
However the BT availability checker has no mention of FTTC for Mere postcodes or phone numbers (I've checked a couple). Sad

Hi Jelv,
From my experience of handling FTTC orders I'd imagine BT's records should update over the coming few weeks.

I thought when I saw your post you were being overly pessimistic - it's come up as available overnight which is what I half expected (the other possibility was next working day - Tuesday).
