      Gutted.

      As there has been some confusion over when my exchange is to be unbundled i emailed Sky sales.
      I received a reply today and am still non the wiser.
      If this is a typo then i will not get Sky for at least 12 months
      Or could it be a double negative "not unavailable" meaning "Available

      I have checked your local telephone exchange Ulverston with the details you have provided. Sky Broadband Base, Mid and Max are not unavailable until the next 12 months. You can choose to take Sky Connect now or wait for Sky Broadband Base, Mid and Max.

      Does Sky Connect not float your boat then, have you tried the Sky site to see if it will let you have it for a fiver ?

      I would go for connect but i would end up paying 17 for connect + 21 for the 6 channel packages,instead of 26 for the lot if my exchange was unbundled.

      Looks like i will have to wait and sign up for the lot when my exchange finally gets unbundled,I'm hoping its not going to be 12 months from now.

      I did try the checker and it offered me connect @ 17

      Looks like you are just going to have to wait then. Still as the old saying goes, "All good things come to those that wait".

      you will only get the connect package for 5 quid if your exchange is to be unbundled before a date in mid summer.
