role out of sky broadband
Is there a list anywhere detailing sky's timetable for rolling out llu?
I might consider switching once llu is rolled out, and once i have info about traffic shaping, fup, and port blocking etc.
Also I was wondering what the experience of users who have switched is? good speed and reliable connections all round?
EDIT: corrected typo

hello and welcome jonnywombat
a list of easynet enabled exchanges can be found here Sky acquired easynet a few months back so they could launch sky broadband,
as to the best of my knowledge no one has been switched to sky broadband yet till the end of this month Sky is only taking details of people who are interested that should change the end of this month (August).
hope this helps

Thanks for that.
unfortunatly the link only showed me what i knew already.. that my exchange is not yet unbundled. So is there no information on timetables for unbundling more?
Also if you can point me to info on traffic shaping, port blocking, and fup (i have read info in t+c) i would apprciate this.
Thanks againWOMBAT Waste Of Money Brains And Time

well my exchange marshalls cross is not scheduled til December 06, you are probably better wombat doing a line check on Skys signup page and see when they say its available.
We have emailed Sky Broadband, asking them to be forthcoming and unofficially use our site to help their users, still waiting tho :-(

"Thanks for registering for Sky Broadband, we've checked the phone number and you won't be in a Sky Broadband area within the next 12 months."
The connect product is priced similarly to my current isp, and i would consider switching apart from the lack of information available on skys website. It says that product is subject to FUP, but i can't find any info on exactly what the FUP is, or info on other the other issues i have previously mentioned.
I got bit in the bum by tiscali, who when i was with them were equally vague regarding these issues. Not gonna make that mistake again
Most good isps now have all this info easily accessible on their websites, and I for one would not migrate until I had this information.
EDIT: just noticed the interesting wording "you won't be in a Sky Broadband area within the next 12 months."... Surely this should be "sky broadband will not be in your area........"

100gb of data a month? it would cost too much in buying tissues!

I know SatDish rang Easynet tonite and the most important thing to come out of the experience, was answered in seconds, knowledgeable and most of all very very helpful. In fact Glenns words on msn to me was fook me that was helpful.
Easynet in case you did not know are gonna be frontline support for sky broadband and on first impressions, are spot on.
Hopefully over the next few weeks, we are gonna do a survey and ring various ISP's etc to get an understanding of:
1) Support answering times
4) Understanding what they are offering
watch this space!
