Cabinet full! Fastest way to check when fibre available

Recently moved home and signed up for BT broadband and phone.
Very prompt service and delivery.
However the speed is shocking which is what we expected but was told fibre could not be offered to us.
I checked Openreach and get:
Your area is enabled for Superfast Fibre but demand is high on your cabinet right now.
This means you may not be able to order fibre today but we're working to increase capacity. Please check back for an update.
So basically there is no room in the cabinet currently.
What is the fastest way to know when one becomes available so we can upgrade to fibre straightaway.

You just need to keep checking. If you have not been using this estimate checker you can use it and it will show what services it can receive.

Do I need to keep checking on the Openreach website?
Will the message change when it’s available?
Thank you
Rosie

Just check on the link that @gg30340 and I posted. The text will change from waiting list to available.

Ok thank you for your help.
My phone line connected but must not have updated yet as not recognising it. I’ll try again in a couple of days.

You could try with your address or postcode, the speed prediction won''t be as accurate but it will at least show the status of the cabinet.

Sounds like your phoneline has missed the Friday database update. Try next Friday evening and daily thereafter.
