      It's on the call centre's ordering systems, so not on the website for Joe Public to order yet!

      I was hoping that the launch may have been this month, but there is nothing stopping Sky from launching in December.

      Hopefully Sky will offer a good product range which will reflect high end & low end users in areas with and without their equipment. More importantly I hope that there won't be an equivalent 'Connect' product in respect of being throttled to the Stone Age.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      I haven't heard any information at all about a launch or pricing. The fibre products showing in the systems at the moment might be just for the trial which is still ongoing, so don't get your hopes up yet.

      surly it would be cheaper for sky to release a fttc only product instead of ffth or fttp. surely that would be cheaper cause all they would need to change is the socket and router
