I've used the checker. It says:
Available ProductsDownstream Line Rate(Mbps)Upstream Line Rate(Mbps)Downstream Range(Mbps)Availability Date
For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage. Throughput/download speeds will be less than line rates and can be affected by a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.
The Stop Sale date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2012; the Formal Retirement date for Datastream is from 31-Mar-2014.
If the End User wishes to migrate from their current Broadband supplier they will need to contact them in the first instance to obtain a MAC (Migrations Authorisation) Code, and then contact their new Broadband supplier to arrange for the service to be migrated.

Thank you for your interest.
But that exchange AND the cabinet for my post code has got Infinity. See: http://www.fasterbroadbandni.com/checkcabinet.php?exchange_id=70
If there are not many house where you are it will not be that financially viable to Openreach to put another cabinet in so your complaints or requests will fall on deaf ears. I will probably get done at sometime in the future but only after more profitable areas are done.
Contacting your local councillor & MP never goes amiss however being connected direct to the exchange is the problem.
I believe BT will address those connections at the end of the FTTC roll-out.
