I have recently received this reply about said cabinet
Thank you for your enquiry.
I have checked your details and can confirm you are connected to Slough exchange cabinet 117.
I am sorry to say there are no current plans to upgrade this cabinet.
I have checked with the planning team and they cannot give me any timescales for this work taking place.
I realise this is not the answer you were hoping for and for this I apologise.
I have posted this to help those in Slough.
I fully agree this wasn't the answer I was hoping for as my original enquiry was about cabinet 84 in Bridgwater
I then received another email from the sender saying they would like to recall the message.
Map was upside down......!!!!!!

ray - there was a land adoption issue running since the development was finished in 2006 but the land was officially adopted in March this year so my email to Openreach informed them of this fact with the wild hope of getting some timeframe as to when something might be done as well as pointing out the availability date of 30 Sept 2014 on the adsl checker was extremely optimistic. - which you have posted as I was slowly typing this.
I see what you mean
FTTC is currently not available on this cabinet due to following reasons:- We are in ongoing discussion with the relevant authority about the location of your cabinet.
It will be interesting as to how detailed a reply I will receive. Hopefully more than "ongoing discussions" which is what has appeared on the relevant sites for well over a year now.
