      Re: Sky Phase 1 Firmware upgrade confirmed!!!!

      I think the stories of the problems people have had with Phase 1 are legend. It is just that it makes me chuckle quietly to see this frenzy on here, and elsewhere, about getting the new firmware right now, this very minute, and not a moment longer.

      None of us know what Sky's capacity for delivery of the firmware is. I would hazard a guess that they have not built delivery capability for a bulk 100% drop. Simply because there is no need for it. I have run global nodal networks in my time and it would never have been right to deploy a whole-network firmware update in one hit. Phased deploy is best practise as you take the firmware out of the lab and into the real world. For an ISP to do any different with the sheer scale that Sky face would be incompetent.

      Given that people with Phase 1 routers have (or have not) been suffering with them up to this time a few more days or even weeks is neither here nor there. Nothing worth getting up in to a lather about

      Re: Sky Phase 1 Firmware upgrade confirmed!!!!

      We do know from unconfirmed reports that approx 100k of customers will receive the update per week until everyone has the new firmware. As for having it all in one go, that would be absolutely crazy. This way Sky can control and gain feedback as it is rolled out.

      Hi Ged

      We can confirm that we are upgrading the Phase 1 firmware as part of our general maintenance activities; this is being gradually deployed to the entire base through a remote upgrade process.

      Cheers

      Lol, and people questioned my sincerity.

      I can assure the good members of this forum, that as long as I am with Sky, I will try and give the most accurate and up-to-date information possible on any of the hot topics.

      Just hope I dont get found out, and kicked out the door
