When is Fibre Available?

If I put my postcode into Kitz, it says that I should connect at around 4.5 Mb on ADSL2+ and fibre is available.
If I enter my phone number as well, it says 2 Mb and no fibre.
If I enter the postcode of the people on the other side of the road, it again says that fibre is available.
I am currently connected at 5.7Mb on ADSL2+.
Can fibre be available on one side of the road, but not the other?
If it isn't available, then is there somewhere where I can see when it is?

It looks like there's quite a few cabinets in your post code.
Your on cabinet 102 which has no plans for fibre just yet I'm afraid

That would explain why the phone number makes the difference. I suppose it identifies the actual cabinet. but ...

Yes as the fibre only goes to the phone cabinet (in reality it goes to a FTTC cabinet which is within a couple of metres of your phone cabinet)
So it depends on which cabinet your phone line is connected to, not which side of a road you are on.

Welcome to my predicament. Don't worry though, wait 5 years and check again </sarcasm>
