      I wonder if this is just going out to Sky Talk customers, with the increased speed announcement a sop to lessen complaints about increases.

      Re: Sky Broadband Max - New Faster Speeds?

      Thinking about it, it would only [the letter] get sent out to those with Sky Talk, notifying them that the cost of calls is to rise - a bit of good news for those, to bury the bad news perhaps?

      So statistically, all Sky Talk customers would actually have the new price rises for the calls. But only about approx. 10% of those customers, if they were all on Max, and they all lived next or near to the exchange, could actually benefit from the newer faster download speeds. Unless of course its different technology.

      I don't think 21CN will have any effect on unbundled lines. Connect customers may benefit, but those on LLU will not, unless they leave and join a BT reseller.

      Yes and No, 21CN when you get right down to it, is BT catching up with Sky and other LLU providers who use ADSL2+.

      FTTC has nothing to do with 21CN, apart from a few experimental exchanges this is far in the future.

      Re: Sky Broadband Max - New Faster Speeds?

      BT has released new details of its fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) rollout, including a list of the first 29 exchanges to be upgraded to offer faster broadband in early 2010.

      BT names first 29 exchanges for fibre rollout ? The Register

      So would rule out FTTC via BT I guess.
