      Re: Sky will be looking to run trials of fibre-optic broadband

      I tried calling Sky earlier to ask when they think I'll be able to get fibre but they seemed completely clueless and couldn't tell me if it will be April or the end of next year. All they could suggest was that I sign up at that page to register my interest. I also asked about the upload speeds and they didn't have a clue about that either so I basically wasted 15 minutes and came away with zero useful information.

      Just now I am in the process of backing up my computer to an offsite service called Crashplan and after running 24/7 for the last 9 days I've just reached 11%. Sometimes I get the odd slow down watching a video on YouTube with my current connection but the real issue for me is upload speed and as more people start storing files on the Cloud 2mbps will be exposed as a major limitation, so Sky is practically forcing me to think seriously about BT.

      Wow. Fml. Are you serious?

      Your either a troll or a really mean word I don't want to say.

      I tell you what. Go think about joining bt. During the 2.5 week deliberation of picking idle fluff from your naval, wait and see what sky are actually going to release as a product rather than wasting 4 mins of ur time typing that and two mins of my time writing this

      I really don't like BT as a company and I know their customer service can be appalling but everything I've seen so far says the maximum upload for Sky will be 2mbps, which seems to be confirmed by the speedtest graphic after your post. BT are supposed to delivering 20mbps upload speeds in April. I'm no fan boy for any company or a troll either. I just want the best service I can get and I'm disappointed by the lack of information both Sky and BT are offering at the moment on when I'll be able to get fibre.

      Re: Sky will be looking to run trials of fibre-optic broadband

      Sky have decided to publish that they would be offering 40/2 but no one believes that that will be the only speed offered by Sky.

      Sky do not have any official fibre packages yet, but they are expected to be for sale as from next month, which is only 18 days away.

      I would just hang on a little bit longer.

      However BT do seem to have the highest upload speed so far.

      But then again, Sky hammer them on download.

      Sky are in the midst of Trialing FTTC, hence why Sales and general CS have little knowledge of it, and the softly softly approach with 40/2 speeds. The product is expected to be officially launched in April.

      I have a inkling that in due course, Sky will be offering similar packages to BT.

      However, if you insist on getting the fastest possible sync speeds now, then go ahead and sign a 12 month contract with BT.

      I would suggest a moment of pause tho. Take a look at the 80/20 pricing. You'll be paying a lot more. Also a good idea to check the speedtest result for average download speeds, sync speed isn't everything!!

      Re: Sky will be looking to run trials of fibre-optic broadband

      Thanks NewsreadeR. I can't place an order with either company at the moment because neither one seems able to give me even a ballpark estimate of when it will go live here, which is frustrating to say the least when you are trying to upload roughly 400 gigs to a back up service and it's crawling along at about 0.5mbps. All things being equal I'd stay with Sky but if it transpires that BT will be 10x faster on uploads it makes sense for me to choose that over download speeds. I'm in an area that has been designated for FTTP so that is another consideration as well.

      More, delicately, put than my post NR

      Flashman. If you bother reading the posts here, namely on the fibre section, you will see every single New trial fibre customer had been told the speeds will be greater than 2mb upload.

      By all means, don't wait 18 days, sign the 18 month contract and prove me an Ass

      which is frustrating to say the least when you are trying to upload roughly 400 gigs to a back up service and it's crawling along at about 0.5mbps.
      Why not just get a backup drive?

      400gb is a lot of data.
