 Superfast Broadband:

The BT website at www.dslchecker.bt.com now indicates that the fibre connection has been made and superfast broadband is available. Enter your telephone number in this site to see the status for your line.
The ADSL speed shown is what is available for your existing connection and the FTTC speed is the speed available for superfast broadband on your line - this max speed varies depends on the specific condition of your line eg. distance from the cabinet.
If only the ADSL speed is shown and nothing for FTTC, this indicates that your line is one that does not benefit fron the fibre upgrade either because it has a direct connection to the exchange or is too far away from the cabinet. OCC have advised that there are 13 lines affected in this way.
Oxfordshire CC have a website at www.betterbroadbandoxfordshire.org.uk/broadband-providers that gives links to possible suppliers of superfast broadband. There is also a useful FAQ section which should answer any questions you have.
