      Just phoned sky again and they had confirmed now that FTTC not available in my area and no date is given yet by BT. And Sky FTTC will be ready in April and it totally unlimited no restriction no usage allowance and no slowdown to enjoy your SkyGo and Anytime+ with no speed reduced or any capped on it.

      So look like there is no 15 Meg capped afterall. They even say to me my Sky LLU unlimited up to 16 Meg is now ready if I wish to switch to Sky Broadband but I say no thanks, I stayed with Plusnet.

      Not a happy one then....

      But, hold on Sky, my Sky+ HD box is belong to me, and Anytime + feature should never disabled for any free to air channels such as BBCi player / ITV player and yet again, Sky is conned and rip off. Glad I have Freesat box to access ITV Player and BBCi Player for free of charge, not 20 a month like Sky does!

      The possible misinformation from Sky maybe because Openreach guarantee a minimum of 15Mb on a FTTC line (save for the ones that have an estimate of <15Mb on the BTW checker), so the operator may have interpreted this as a cap in the evening. Stab in the dark, I know but that's my take on the matter.
