      Its a tenner currently, you need 24 of TV as well to get it for 7.50

      Given the cost of the infrastructure Sky will surely have to use BTO fibre and therefore be tied in to their costs so i would expect its going to be a tenner more at least.

      You dont even need to change the socket, its only a filtered faceplate they fit and a few people have taken them off and shoved their ADSL Nation ones back on.

      You do need a new modem and router though (unless you have a cable router then that will do)

      Sky only just started an FTTP trial last Summer, so I can't see them jumping in with a full FTTP product range as well initially.

      However it is important to remember that some exchanges have not had FTTC installed, but they have got FTTP. If Sky were not to offer an FTTP product range, then they wouldn't be able to supply a broadband product to these exchanges at some stage in the future.

      seen a few fibre box's being installed in the main roads (one box was like 5feet tall and taller than the original green box), around me.... just not on my road yet

      common get you act together sky and let us in on that glass wire!!

      and it does seem bt are speeding up but they will soon slow down, they are not even having to pay for the installation, they are getting a free network upgrade by the uk government....
      yet they insist on increasing prices for an over inflated price plan.

      I live in a right dead end place, I honestly thought I would be the only person with it. On the day I haas it installed I was the 4th person that day and the engineer had more instals after me and that was 2 weeks after it went live
