      Sky will be looking to run trials of fibre-optic broadband

      Sky TV customers could experience super-fast broadband speeds of up to 40Meg. This will give enough speed to run multiple bandwidth heavy applications. A family could be watching different HD movies while others were gaming or working on complex graphics or video projects.

      It will also provide faster upstream speeds of up to 10Mb, enabling Sky TV customers to post videos, experience high definition video conferencing and enjoy interactive high definition gaming.

      Throughout 2010 BT Openreach will be opening up exchanges to test this new technology. If the trial proves to be successful Sky will be rolling this new technology across their network.

      Simply register your interest and Sky will contact you when this service will be available in your area. Customers taking part in the trial will receive a new router and modem. An engineer on behalf of Sky will also visit your home to upgrade your phone socket, set up your modem/router and check your internet connection.

      Just registered too, but the chances of me seeing fibre in the next 5 years unless I move house are probably zero!
