Actually large parts of Birkenhead/Birkdale/Beach Haven can't get UFB. I'm lucky where I am that I can get it - 100m up the road, the rollout stops abruptly (for now).
Yeh I lived in Beach Haven till March this year before I sold my place to move to a street in Torbay which will not get UFB till 2019 . Rollout is 2017-2018 for BeachHaven/Birdake/Birkenhead. But quite a lot of UFB has been rolled out from the New World/Chatswood area, back down Onewa Road towards the motorway I have seen them installing it digging up the streets. Birkdale and Beach Haven only have small patches available. The OP said they were in Birkenhead which is better covered so it can't hurt to inquire.
