      V1 Router FW Rollouts?

      We have reason to believe that this is about to start. Although totally unconfirmed officially, we have had information forwarded to us via a minimum of 2 different sources.

      If this is true, 4k of customers should be done today, and then the remaining customers will be completed at a rate of over 100k customers per week until all of them have been updated.

      I must stress that this information has not been given to us in an official capacity and may or not be true.

      Unofficially, this info has since been denied and that the rollout is for a staff trial only.

      ^^

      I think that might be true. My router does seem to be getting any tasty FW yet..

      I force the router to search for the FW it found the update sever BUT didnt get the file.

      This is a multi stage roll out, first is the sky staff group trial, if that goes without hitch a further block of general customers will be done, if that goes without issues then they will roll it out across the board in groups of a set number each night until completion.
      Obviously any issues that occur may cause the roll out to be paused temporarily so a definate date will not be announced publicly.

      That's about the seventh notification / confirmation now. Although another source is adamant it ain't happening.

      Cannot comment on that as due to the nature of the roll out any timescale/ target date is likely to slip if there is any hint of an issue even if it only affects a small numbers of customers. Hopefully this is Skys way of making sure we don't see another "skoogle email" debacle

      I must be the only one that doesn't want this update, I have a rock solid connection and don't see the point of it. My router has been reliable since day one as I have never had an issue with it.
