      Provided that Sky has the necessary equipment at your exchange, or in some cases a neighbouring exchange, then Sky fibre should be available at the same time or shortly after BT Infinity broadband becomes available.

      Sky tend to turn a blind eye to existing contracts when a new contract would mean more money for them.

      Also Sky will supply you with a new router which will work with the Fibre connection.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      I had 6 months left on my Sky Broadband (ADSL) contract when I upgraded to fiber and Sky didn't have a problem with it.

      It's actually one of the reasons I went for FTTC with Sky and not someone else.

      Similarly here. I moved house within the first 12 months, realised the ADSL connection was shocking so phoned up and ordered fibre. They just restarted the 12 month contract.
