      Am I close to getting FTTC?

      Workers installed an FTTC cabinet (for my cabinet) 3 weeks ago.Today, Bt were working on "excavating blockage in existing duct", then on Monday, the Roadworks site says that BT will carry out"power connection following street cabinet installation-excavate to expose low voltage power cables for power connection and lay duct.Power engineer to carry out inspection prior to jointing,power jointing team to insert cable and execute jointing works, reinstate, check and clear work."

      Finally, on the 29th of October, the Roadworks site says that there is to be"remedial work"at the same destination.

      Does all this mean I could be very close to being able to get FTTC at last?

      I'm moving shortly and the cab that my new place is connected to was installed back in June but the BT checker doesn't even list a date for FTTC availability. Guess I should have checked first before deciding to move.
