The build date for me changed 3 times before it finally went live. Just decide what ISP you want to use for fibre and then order ADSL/VDSL from them while you are waiting for fibre. They should allow you to cancel your contract part way through. So you can sign a fibre contract with them.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. Will sit tight and keep an eye on the dates. Probably a good idea above to sign with the 'ultimate' fibre provider so switching will be easier than breaking contract and going elsewhere.

astrae: Fibre went into our street in Feb 2014.  It still isn't live.  The date said June 2015.  I see now mine has changed to July 2014.

I checked my isp's website on the 31st July and mine is now live.

Will sort out my house lan wiring before requesting it.
