      How to get it

      Hey I just wondered how people were getting into the fibre trial, I have a fair bit of broadband related knowhow etc..

      With 6 of us using this connection I'd rather get this sooner rather than later. Any specific team or anything?

      it apears a sky fiber team are contacting those ppl who registered their details on the trial site and have the FTTC access enabled on their exchange/cab so if your cab is good to go and you would be able to put in an order for bt infinity/plus net fiber broadband then reg on the sky site and cross your fingers for a call

      I think that rather wisely direct contact details are hard to come by at this stage. If they were available then effectively the small team would become swamped with calls at this stage.

      Not sure to be honest, registered my interest on the old website over a year ago and the new one a few months ago (I believe, I can't find the confirmation email)
