      UPDATE 11:27am

      Sky have confirmed to ISPreview.co.uk that their new IPTV service will use their own technology and not the YouView platform. Sky also told us that they have "no other plans to announce" in regards to whether or not they will upgrade their 40Mbps fibre service to 80Mbps as BT deploys a similar change.

      The FTTC service will use the Sky hardware and backhaul network hence how they can manage to offer unlimited.

      Or to say that another way, IT WILL NOT USE BT WHOLESALE WBC NETWORK.

      Noticed they only mention no usage caps/unlimited, but dont mention traffic shaping at peak times(?).

      What does this mean? That the speed will be restricted to 15Mb during peak times?

      Hmmm, looks like I'll be going with Origin (South Yorkshire), No caps, no throttling and confirmed no DLM (my pet hate). It also means I could finish with Sky tv in August (after the price freeze ends), if I so wish, and still only have to pay 22.50 for my fttc broadband. Also the very real prospect of even higher speed from them this year (currently being tested).

      no disrespect meant but i will not believe sky are going to cap speed to 15mb during peak times without some official confirmation of this, in the news announcement on the corporate site about the broadband growth it has a section that says:-

      Better experience: thanks to a state-of-the-art all-fibre core network, Sky is the only ISP to guarantee not to manage the speeds of any customer on its network. Sky’s totally unlimited service is free from the fair use policies that other broadband providers use to slow speeds down at peak times to alleviate contention in their networks. This makes it ideal for those homes that use their broadband to access video and other high bandwidth services, such as Sky Anytime+ and Sky Go.

      how could they say this if they intend to slow the speeds down at peak times!
