      Certainly there are a variety of different options available. Whether it is an all-in-one device such as that D-Link DVG-N5402GF or a separate Modem/Router combination.

      If the firmware is going to be locked down like the current Sky routers, then I can't see many liking the all-in-one option unless it has a 'Modem' or 'Bridge' mode.

      My phone line and ADSL2+ service comes to my home via a telegraph pole, so it's no different to what people have now in many areas.

      Mine too, I have about 1 kilometre of overhead line back to the cabinet. I have read that it would be much cheaper to supply FTTH using the existing overhead poles, than to excavate all over the place for underground supplies. Many of the existing BT UG Ducts are over-crowded as it is and may not have space for quite 'fat' fibre cables.

      Re: Sky in Gigabit trials in Hampshire

      Here's a question for you all...

      Would it be technically possible for Sky to place a WIFi AP on top of the telegraph poles that wouldn't interfere with the Fibre cables?

      Power could be generated by using solar panels, or fed alongside them.

      Yep BTO had been ongoing trials of vectoring for cabinet (FTTC) I believe it trialing on large huawei cabinets at present (with 288 on it) including my cabinet which are huawei 288. I can see max speed on my line is 145Mbps but BTO limit at 79.9Mbps

      That sounds good.

      I guess that only selected people have been offered the higher connection speeds to play with. Such a shame as to really test things, you should push the whole product towards getting most people on it.

      Scubbie..I got email from BT PD Wales & The Marches NGA that coming soon it will be FTTC 120/30 as BT are pushing the speed sometimes next year which it good news as the trial are going very well with vectoring and G.Fast. BT want the new product 120/30 when BT Sports take over Sky as a new Champion League for 2015/16 season. But, BT say it will be available around 25% who got the higher speed 80/20 will getting 120/30 next year. For those who live much closer to the cabinet up to 100m away.

      So it is only going to benefit those who already have a very high speed. Those on the periphery who have a poor speed will be no better off. Pity, its only going to increase the gap between the haves and have nots.
