      I seem to remember doing this a long time ago.

      Rather strange they do not have Sky as one of the existing broadband ISPs, only BT, Virgin TalkTalk and Other. Don't tell me this is another case where new signups will get the best deal

      It can be done fortunately. The fibre feed (well, ethernet in the exchange) can be split off and feed into the Sky ISAMs to control their customer's lines. VULA is what the process is known as I believe.

      How do you know that someone from Sky has not already posted something in this thread?

      Shame the FTTP will be small scale (I assume). I'll be happy with FTTC though, cabs been enabled for over a year and half now and I've been waiting patiently

      I've bitten the bullet now and ordered the BT product - so you guys should be able to get the SKY Fibe product really soon now;-) It's always the same, supermarket queues, road lanes - Im alwyas in the wrong one at the wrong time....

      Cheers

      ^ If it's just an order could you not cancel it?

      Your post made me laugh though. I often feel the same about myself.

      I could - but OTOH if SKY take as long to enable my exchange for FTTC as they did for LLU - I could be out of contract with BT before it happens. Mind you, I also get Openzone Wifi and a far better router, and I can use my BT credit card to offset the price... so perhaps I won't change lanes again (for the moment!).

      Cheers
