yeah communication hasn't been there best suit.
I've been constantly monitoring the ADSL Checker ever since the FTTC box appeared next to the cabinet that the BT Checker says my line is connected to.
Last December it said available in March.
In March it changed to September
In September, the FTTC stats vanished completely and was replaced with "We can't provide a delivery date"
It was at this point I discovered there were two cabinets marked with the number my line is connected to. So it looks like BT has difficulty communicating with itself let alone us peons.
