      BT confirm Fibre is ready in my area

      Hello All

      Sorry but i am new to this and was wondering if someone can give me some help. I have just agreed to switch from UKonline to Sky and my line is due to activated on the 22nd Nov. However i have just had a mail from an old contactin the HLC dept at BT confirming my line is now active for FTTP. The customer service desk at BT has told me they only have a trial in place on three exchanges which are no mine but i was wondering if anyone knew of a dept at Sky i could contact to try and get something moving on this?

      It's nothing to do with Sky, only BT - the trials for Sky are staff only

      They must be as bad as Sky for giving out duff information. BT have dozens of exchanges enabled with FTTC and already have many users receiving the service. A couple of them post on this forum. The exchanges undergoing trials are for 100Mb, not the standard 40Mb, delivered by FTTC.

      There is nothing to stop you cancelling your contract with Sky, especially if the line is not yet active. FTTP will give you 100Mb with a 20 Mb minimum guarantee I believe.

      but being on a FTTP trial for 25 per month is going to be the steal of the century, nowhere else would you be able to get that.

      Heck even after the trial BT may leave it all connected.
