      I think time passes more slowly for those of us with a slow connection. I wouldn't be as "excited" if I had a decent ADSL connection.
      As for "some areas at least", I was told if B.T. offer it in an area, you can get it from Sky also.

      Until around an hour ago I was under the impression that you had to have Sky's LLU equipment and FTTC in the local area. However it now appears that Sky are also using Virgin's cable.

      No one has yet confirmed whether you can have Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre on an exchange that doesn't have Sky's LLU equipment.

      Maybe there aren't any and that is why it was said. Logically if there are any they must be few and far between. I have only noticed unbundled and no fibre, somebody say where some are the other way around ?
