Its usually a few months before its ready as it all needs to be provisioned in the back end.

 

A pamphlet usually goes out to the mailboxes when Fibre is ready to be ordered.

Or in my case, a small box of weetbix.

Fibre went in street in August, and they said fibre would be available by Christmas. Then January. Then March. Latest in April. So 7 months?

All depends if it wasn't a straight forward provisioning, back log etc

 

Can be anything that causes it to be delayed

I'd love to see a pic of what they send out. Weetbix sounds pretty creative.
