      Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre Is Here

      If we believe Sky's website, then their new Unlimited Fibre broadband package has now launched.

      This should now mean, that anyone who is on a Sky Unbundled (LLU) Exchange, that has been fitted with Sky's kit and also has BT's FTTC technology, should now hopefully enjoy superfast Fibre Optic Broadband from Sky.

      The only package that we are currently aware of is;

      • Speeds of upto 40Mbps down
      • Speeds of upto 2Mbps up
      • Truly Unlimited Usage
      • 50 one-off setup fee
      • 12 Month Contract


      The cost for Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre is 20 Per Month

      However, you must take Sky Talk, (0 or 5 a month) and Sky Line Rental (12.25 a month)

      Also it is worth remembering, that FTTC is currently only available to approx 30% of UK homes. This should rise to approx 40% of UK homes by the end of 2012

      For further information, please visit the official webpage, or keep on an eye on Sky's Broadband Order webpage, during today, to see if the checker appears.

      Although, there has been no official news so far received, that the service has actually launched, Sky's website definitely states, Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre will be on sale on sky.com/broadband from 12 April.

      The general feedback given on our forums, is that 20th April is more likely, and that faster speeds may be offered, in the future, as this is being trialled by Sky employees. As always, time will tell.

      We genuinely hope that Sky do offer more than the standard package listed above, as BT have recently upped the Ante by announcing that everyone on Infinity can have faster speeds for free (although you do have to commit to a further 18 months contract) and it would be a shame to lose so much custom on launch.

      For further information, please see our comprehensive Sky Fibre Broadband - FAQ section.

      As from 13th April, you can now order SBUF

      Been using Sky FTC @ 40Mb for a couple of weeks. I was approached by Sky because I had pre-registered. The service is synced at 39998 kbps / 1999 kbps.

      However... BT in response to Virgin has just announced they are increasing their fibre speeds to 76 mbps from today, and some customers are in-line for a free upgrade. Will Sky follow suit and provide this benefit......?

      Sky have now changed the small print to 13th April, so it's another little wait, and one more sleep.

      Shame about the Sky Talk & Line Rental restriction though. I'm on BT for both & prefer to keep it that way.

      Many members reporting that they have successfully signed up to SBUF - Hopefully faster speeds will be available in the near future.
