4G wifi to fibre

I took out 4G router wifi contract with EE as broadband speeds were so rubbish.  When I took the contract out I was told by EE customer services that when BT Open Reach have installed fibre on the housing estate I could simply switch from 4G to fibre with EE.  Good, I thought, I'm loyal, have had problems with BT in the past and have a mobile with EE.  Win win!  However, fibre is now in and EE150 tell me that I can't move to fibre with EE but that I have to go with the small list of providers on the BT fibre website because the fibre is ultrafast.  So my only choice now is to pay off the 12 months of remaining 4G contract!!  Spitting feathers does not get anywhere near explaining my frustration!  I would not have taken out the 4G router contract if I couldn't have simply switched to fibre during the contract!   I was about to upgrade my mobile with EE but if EE can't help me out on this I'm off and they'll lose a customer for life (I bear grudges!).  Any solutions out there anyone?  Thanks.

What does BT Broadband Availability Checker estimate for your phone number? Post just the whole table and the line above it, blanking out your phone number. If it doesn't recognise your phone number, use the Address Checker, not the Postcode Checker.

Thanks for replying.  Here it is.  I don't have a landline phone number.  This reply window wouldn't let me post a snapshot of the table and it has removed some of the HTML in the reproduced version below but hopefully you get the gist.

Re: 4G wifi to fibre

EE told you correctly. The only Fibre there is FTTP (Premises). EE only sell FTTC (Cab) .

 

You might get FTTP from BT. Try filling out Broadband Availability | BT - BT.com .
