      Fibre optic question

      I've registered my interest in Sky's upcoming fibre optic service since our internet is dreadfully slow with ADSL, we're getting like 1mb with the unlimited package.

      Anyway I checked to see if my exchange was on the list to be upgraded and it was but it said 'Accepting CP orders now' could anyone tell me what that means?

      thanks

      I would think it means that it is completed and BT are accepting orders from Call Providers. Whether Sky will be interested is another matter, I suppose it will depend on the amount of interest registered at a particular exchange.

      I see, well thanks for your help then.

      I've already registered my interest and depending on who offers it first (BT or Sky) then I'll go with either.

      ID net are also offering FFTC services, (once your exchange offers it)

      If O2 aren't offering FFTC when my exchange is done next year I'll be off to them.

      Like everything new, it is expensive. BT Infinity are offering Up to 40Mb with a 20Gb download for 20 a month + 50 activation. The better deal looks like Option 2 which is still up to 40Mb with unlimited download and no activation fee for 25 a month. Both 18 month contracts.
      Details here - BT Infinity – How to get fibre optic broadband


      PS. Note the Up to which means you probably will not get 40Mb.

      PPS - Still only 10 exchanges in Scotland

      BT infinty's FUP on the "unlimited" package is supposedly 100 gig.

      Hopefully with the ASA doing an investigation on the use of unlimited with FUP in the small print we should get a clearer picture of what packages actually mean in the future.
