      Discussion on Tie Pairs

      We are doing our best to try to bring you some more information on Tie Pairs.

      I have opened this thread to keep all the discussion in one place, and will add more info as and when I get hold of it.

      In the meantime, here is a great PDF you can read until my findings are published on SkyUser.

      Re: Discussion on Tie Pairs

      Although Im not technical, makes interesting reading. Which again highlights the unpreparedness of SKy to address the minimum specs. provided by BT for the tie pairs. The technical requirements of tie pairs are well known since 2001 and therefore follows that whatever quality tie pairs SKy is using should have been compatible with the BT equipments specs anyways.

      Tie pairs compatibility should not have been an issue at all with Sky or their purchase of Easynet or any other LLU operator for that matter. I still think it is a big lie dished out to unsuspecting and gullible customers.

      I would tend to agree with you on that point

      Re: Discussion on Tie Pairs

      From my understanding, it is BT that install the Tie Pairs into the LLU operators HDF and not the LLU Operator.

      BT do not like anyone touching their kit at all.

      The only way Sky woul dbe at fault is for not ordering them. If they have ordered them, then surely it is BT that have not installed them.

      Things will become clearer once I can get my head around the process.

      Re: Discussion on Tie Pairs

      Fair point NR. If it is BT only installing them , then the question of "FAULTY" tie pairs shud never have arisen and Joe public should not be misinformed. Self contradictory! Sky shud have known what to order correctly.

      It is more like they never placed an order for provisioning, given that BT informed me many times they are awaiting further orders/instructions from SKY and/or Easynet.

      Something about SKy fobbing off people (with tie Pairs) still stinks.

      @NR
      The tie pairs as I understand them are the wires from the old style BT racks of equipment to the LLU (eg Sky/Easynet etc) new equipment?
      In the Guardian article you posted as a separatel item on Thursday (your red letter day!) there is a description of the work. In the paper itself were pictures of people doing it!

      The whole process is so complicated to put into words, hence the delay. As I find relevant links I am adding them to here.

      I think once people see the complexity of what is involved, maybe we can realise it is not a 2 minute job to implement.

      Hi,

      While I can fully appreciate that this is indeed NOT a 2 minute job, I have now been waiting 8 weeks for this "problem" to be resolved.

      Is this a record, and do I win 5?

      Joking apart, what really annoys me, more than the fact that I've been waiting 8 weeks since switching from Bulldog, is the absolute lack of communication from Sky. I can only assume that there are so many others in the same boat as me that it wouldn't be feasible to contact us all!

      Matt.
