I've got it in Egremont. Steady 35MbPS

http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/products/broadband/infinity#services-checker

Use that link to check on the availability of Infinity in your area. If it's not available yet, it'll link you to an agenda of the surrounding areas and exchanges and give you an approximate date.

I'm in Leasowe and get Sky Fibre. Its only fttc at the moment, but its still much faster than adsl. I'm on the Wallasey exchange by the way, i dont know if the other end of the estate uses an exchange in moreton or upton or something. The cabinet is by our ladys church gardenside.

Looks like Fibre Optic is about to be layed/installed in my road as openreach have dug up the pavement by the junction box, cabinet. I will be upgrading once its up and running properly if its worth it. Is it as good as they it is?? What kid of speeds are people getting? I live in leasowe, (frobisher road). Sky are rolling fibre optic out atm, is sky better then BT???

I've got Sky Fibre. I find it much better than standard broadband and its about 15 times faster than my old ADSL. I have no problem with Sky, it does what its supposed to and is very rarely down. I got it as part of my Sky TV package, so its a bit cheaper than BT and unlike some providers, it's truly unlimited. I get about 30 meg at the minute but apparently I could get up to 40 meg with Sky Fibre Pro. I have no experience with BT Infinity so someone else will have to clue you in on that.

The new cab went in the end of my road end of May. The projected availability date on the BT Wholesale website is December 2013.

The SamKnows website says you're connected to the Wallasey exchange. So it should just be a matter of however long it takes Openreach to outfit the cab.

On the off chance SamKnows is wrong, and you're connected to Arrowebrook (Upton) or Hoylake exchanges instead; the forecast go live at both those exchanges is December 2013.
