Cabinet not being upgraded, anything that can be done?

Further down my road there have been new Infinity cabinets plastered with 'Infinity is here!' stickers for the past 4-5 months yet the checker said it wasn't available in my area. Cabinets near my property are still the old style. After a recent conversation with the (very helpful and prompt) Twitter staff I was told "this cab is not currently in the announced phases of the roll-out. This phase extends to September 2013".

 

Gutted, obviously. I was curious if anyone has been successful in convincing BT to upgrade a particular cabinet (doubtful)? 

 

The email also suggested;

 

"Sometimes local councils/local government make funding available so this might be a good place to start. You could petition your local councillor or MP and see if this is available in your area."

 

Anyone tried something similar?

I'm guessing without an Openreach fibre cabinet my only other option for fibre is Virgin?
