This is a grey area. To be eligible for permanent residency, your EEA partner must have been a qualified person for 5 continuous years. So during the time you spent under EEA family permit, your partner may not have been a qualified person, such as a worker. So unless you can show that your partner has been a qualified person since October/November 2012, with documentary evidence, it may be safer to apply in March 2018.
