      Have a look at the first post of this thread.

      Is This The New Sky Wireless N Router / Hub?

      Although obviously it is a little more nicer looking now that they have refined it.

      Yes;-)) Nicer box now, but a shame about the contents - think I would be waiting for the one that will be needed to cope with 200mbs fibre!! This looks like the SKY equivalent of Vista!!

      You can have it in any colour, as long as it is white.
      No Gb ports.
      Any router can do VoD.

      So what do you guys think SKY will charge for this router then to existing Sky Broadband customers that want to upgrade to this from the F@ST2540N Router ?

      while it would be nice for sky having more customers than BT virgin etc i wouldn't like it if they brought all there customer service over to as sky customers would get annoyed dealing with them.

      Re: Rumour - Sky to buy TalkTalk?

      Why would Sky Customer become annoyed?

      We have many members who have switched to and from TalkTalk on this forum alone.

      The fun bit IMHO would be when Sky starts migrating those on the TalkTalk network across to Sky's network. A lot of Tiscalli customers left when TalkTalk messed up their migration to TalkTalk. Many where left with no service at all. A huge number had incorrect bills. It was a nightmare.

      I believe that Sky did manage to do a lot better when it bought out another ISP a few years ago. The Tiscalli setup was very poor though.

      I had no problems when i was with tiscalli in fact I think they were very good. Sky should do something about there appalling customer care service before purchasing talktalk.

      The problems will come when a company decides not to recrute and adequatelyl train new staff to deal with the invariable plethora of problems associated with an assimilation process. They will be unlikely to invest in new staff for a short-term issue
