      As its 9cmx5.5cmx2cm in size,that's about the size of a 20 pack of cigarettes, it should go through a letter box. It will depend on how it is packed.

      I can confirm that the adaptor will go through the majority of letter boxes without any issues.

      Re: New Mini WiFi adaptor from Sky

      I took up one of the free wifi adapter offers they were sending out to customers a few months ago and today it finally came! I was hoping it would be the USB one in this thread, alas I was presented with the older one which uses a power cable + ethernet.

      It does the job, but would have been nice to free up a plug socket and make things neater.

      My dad entered the raffle for a free wireless connector on 8th july.

      He hasn't heard anything yet, but if one does arrive, he's hopig it'll be the old style as it can be used for other things like smart tv's.
      The new type only works with sky boxes.

      He probably needs to reapply.

      Lots of customers details were lost (system glitch in early July) and they need to re-do the registration. There will be a note on the account but most customers won't find out until months later - yes, I know, great communication from Sky, yet again!
