Twickenham FTTC Status - Any ideas?

Having just moved to the area, there's no FTTC service available to be bought. I am, however on an exchange with it enabled in some areas:
https://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/LWTWI
It turns out that my roadside cabinet hasn't been wired up for it. I can't find any detail anywhere of if/when that cabinet work will be done.
Does anyone have any information of when this is likely to be done? Just thought I'd ask Wink

That would probably be a good start, see if the wholesale checker has any dates listed on it for your postcode/phone number.
There are a few users on here who have access to the "insider" information that might be able to help you out Tongue

There's no details showing for your cabinet I'm afraid.
The best place to keep checking is here https://www.dslchecker.bt.com/
Once that shows FTTC as available you can order it from us.

Thanks for the responses.
Telephone Number 0208xxxxxxx on Exchange TWICKENHAM is served by Cabinet 30
FTTC is currently not available on this cabinet due to following reasons:- At this time we cant provide a delivery date for this cabinet..
Glorious.
Anyone know something about cab 30 in Twickenham? Not expecting miracles, so no worries if not Smiley

Doesn't look like P30 has any sort of plans by Openreach Sad

Thanks a lot for the information. Seems a little crazy...
Is there anyone bar my MP I can ask about any developments? I'm guessing Openreach themselves are intentionally obfuscated. Many thanks for the help.

Unfortunately, we are a little limited when it comes to pushing Openreach to release a product in a specific locality. We've occasionally had movement, or at least a little more information following MP involvement.
