      I wouldn't be surprised to see Sky announce they have x thousands of miles of fibre, they invest, for the future.

      Then we can expect VM and BT to moan their backsides off as it is 'so unfair' and they should be able to use Sky's technology. It's really quite simple. Spend the money, give a good service (for the majority) and then sit and wait for the rewards.

      Last time we were at Sky Towers, they were building a complete tower block of new studios etc and a service contract alone on one Sony server was 500k per year.

      Well i've registered to hear the latest information about fibre-optic broadband and i hope it comes to my area of Gateshead on Tyneside just beside Newcastle and i bet it will be cheaper than Virgin's or BT when it launches and then we'll hear those company's complaining like mad.

      No - We removed 'several of the same links' that you have posted all over these forums. If you carry on posting the 'same copy and paste' as from now we reserve the right to put any further posts of yours into moderation. That way they will have to be approved by a moderator or an admin, before they are available to view.
