      Sky's new wireless N ADSL router is due to launch in August and existing customers will be able to pay 35 to upgrade to the new one if they wish.

      Part of the product spec is that it will support VDSL . I believe this is what openreach use for their FTTC product so I guess a product launch will be along in due course.

      At Work.

      It's in MOJO so other Sky staff will be able to concur.


      ...See someone else posted in other thread.
      Though they joined just to post it. And missed the VDSL bit.

      No its not, it will be similar to the current Phase 2 and Refresh routers, it has a button on the side for WPS

      From the Information Tab
      Sky N Router will be trialed from now to the end of July.
      On the 1st August it will be available to new broadband customers and for existing customer with a cost of 35.00

      I assume that it will be like the Home Hub 3 from BT or the Billion 7800n as a combined ADSL2+ router and cable router.

      I doubt it will have a VDSL modem built in as the few that are on the market are very expensive.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      I was thinking the same. It's probably got a spare EWAN port. I think all ISPs will be using the Openreach VDSL Modem.
