Interesting - there's a cabinet shown at our  postcode and provisional date is 31st December 2010 Smiley
I noticed a new cabinet beside the old cabinet we're connected to so assume that would be the No: 23 referred to.

Cabinet is a few doors down the road from us.  Exchange has RFS date of 31/12, but Dave's said that we're taking orders on it already.
Although there's no date currently on our cab.

Obviously I'd like to get on the trial so hopefully it'll still be running when cabinet activated.

Important to note that a postcode can be served by more than 1 cab so the data isn't a guarantee of availability.

From what I read elsewhere the site shows a cabinet for your postcode, and gives the number of the cabinet that serves many code. You need to find the cab that has that number on it..
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I've just noticed that half my street aren't just on a different cabinet, they are on a different exchange.  My end of the street is Bristol West, other end is Bristol North.

I can confirm that – not from any technical knowledge, but from the fact that the cabinet images for my local area line up to postcodes rather than the actual physical cabinets, and also that several different cabinet images all bear the same number (as multiple postcodes are served by one cab).
