      You're in a plan to get Superfast fibre but we haven't started work yet. It'll be built either as part of our fibre programme or through a partnership with your local authority.

      The speed you get on ADSL has no bearing on what you would get with Fibre. Speed on Fibre depends on how far you are from the fibre cabinet, not the exchange. So looking at your ADSL speed does not help, you are obviously a fair way from the exchange, but you may be close to the cabinet.

      Go to https://www.homeandwork.openreach.co...get-fibre.aspx

      Put in your address details. This will indicate the cabinet you are connected through. You can then find where your actual cabinet is and keep an eye out for work near that to see when the service will become available.

      The included on a plan message means it could be ages away yet.
      My parents had this about a year ago.
      Then about 6 months ago it said within 6 months, now it says within 2 months, so it's not certain.
