      Re: Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro about to be launched?

      Just called to get a MAC as was going to move to BT Infinity 2, was told about Sky Fibre Pro and it should be available to me (with no installation fee).

      As my exchange has only just been enabled (Aberdeen Ashgrove - 2 weeks ahead of delayed schedule), my line doesn't show any fibre is available but this will change around June 7th when the Sky Fibre product is due to go live on my exchange.

      Nice one. I hope that this will be the case as many people are waiting for SFUP.

      Many are also hoping for the current 40/2 package to be changed to 40/10. Perhaps Sky will do both together?

      I have also been told that I can have (order) pro next week, still not sure if its "new customers only" or everyone.

      I've just ordered Pro over the phone, to be installed on the 8th June. I already have Sky TV but no broadband with them.

      Re: Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro about to be launched?

      I've just spoken to Sky tonight on a different matter, and asked the guy as an aside about fibre - he told me about the two packages, 20 per month for 40/10 and 30 per month for 80/20. He said the pro is only available to order via phone, but he didn't suggest it was only for new customers. Interesting to note that he said the lower package was a 10Mb upload speed - I didn't query it at the time because I just didn't think about it, but he definately said 10.

      He also said that there were no special offers on at the moment, but it might be worth waiting a couple of months to see what turned up.

      It certainly is available now.

      However you will need to telephone Sky and ask for the upgrade to it. There also appear to be a few exchanges that aren't able to support the higher speeds at present.

      You will be advised of the speed estimate BEFORE the order is confirmed.

      Question Re: Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro about to be launched?

      have now phoned 4 times & spoken to 4 people who haven't a clue.

      from what i can gather Sky haven't installed fiber equipment in Aberdeen Ashgrove exchange yet, and noone knows when it will be.

      should i keep tryin to get a date for this (like i said the 4 i've spoken to have been clueless), or go with BT who'll install Infinity 2 next week if i wanted?
