      I thought they installed another cabinet next to the existing one?, or is it a new one that exists near you already (ready to be enabled)?..

      Sorry, you are correct. BTO install a new cabinet to house the FTTC or FTTP hardware. The new cabinet may be next to one particular existing cabinet or between two cabinets.

      Whilst they are old stories, it does show a history of what they can and are likely to do again in the future.

      They are not the only ISP to have done this though.

      I have not heard of Sky doing this to date.

      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

      well lets hope not as if sky do anything like snooping I wont be very happy but I am happy with sky at the minute. in terms of fibre well it would be nice to have it as a option on the sky package page. but all we can do is be patient and see what they can do.

      You asked for this thread to be closed before as you stated there is no sky fibre planned. Unfortunately we didn't close it as your information couldn't be further from the truth. Please do not make posts like this again.
