      So this is nationwide and all new customers get the new router from day 1, rather than being phased in once all the v1 routers have been sent out?

      Re: New Router Now Being Despatched

      Everything we know is in this thread. They were despatched as from last week. Looking at posts on here, Sky are sending out refurbed V1 routers to those asking for replacements.

      The figure of 10k of V2's will actually be higher, but no one (quite rightly so) will give an exact number, so as not to risk being identified.

      Any ideas on how the new firmware will be distributed yet (download or auto update on Sky's part)?

      Yes, that is the idea. Just wondered if Sky are phasing in the new routers or not. Bit like the lottery of what version Sky+ box you got a while back.

      tbh There is no guarantee you would get the black one. Even if you get the white one, we believe that the new FW is not that far away at all.
