      Short answer is no. The whole thing seems to have stalled as far as Sky are concerned. Many of us registered for the trial of fibre, but have heard nothing. Requests for information falls on deaf ears.

      Your best bet is to actually ask BT if they are laying fibre in your area.

      That page has been around for approx 12 months. When you phone Sky to see if there is any progress, the ones I have spoken to dont know anything about it. One bloke even told me , falsely it seems, that the page is a fake.

      I got fed up waiting for Sky and went to BT and their infinity product.

      The 3 exchanges shown on the page are the original exchanges trialled by BT, I don't think they were anything to do with Sky. Nobody has reported that they have been offered a trial. BT have now enabled dozens of exchanges with FTTC, with nothing further from Sky.

      Sky will no doubt just wait till BT are more advanced in their fibre installation and then lease bandwidth from them. A lot of people will end up disappointed if this ends in a fibre version of the "Sky Connect" farce.

      Sky have a wonderful opportunity to jump on the South Yorkshire Digital region FTTC. Yet no such news of them even looking at that.
