      New IPv6 Trial for Sky Broadband & Sky Fibre

      Hi folks,

      A new invite has been posted for anyone interested in getting involved with Sky's Beta Trials. This is further extending the IPv6 trials.

      New IPv6 Beta Trial - Sky Community
      We're currently in the process of upgrading our network so that it's compatible with the next generation of Internet Protocol.

      If you are enthusiastic about helping us test this then please complete the form here.

      We need 2-3 weeks of your time where you will be required to participate in a closed area of the community to discuss feedback as well as complete some questionairres on your experience using IPv6.
      If you are interested, please do get involved.

      For those who don't already know, and I'm sure that a lot don't, IPv6 relates to the way that the computers communicate across the Internet. Currently Sky uses the IPv4 system, but this is no longer suitable as it doesn't have enough unique addresses. IPv6 will resolve this issue for a long time.

      Sky have been testing the Sagem routers on their ADSL lines, with a few Sky Hub routers too. This invite is extending these trials further and bringing in the Fibre customers.

      Don't worry if you don't want to get involved. The transition from IPv4 to IPv6 will happen anyway and Sky are working hard to ensure that it goes quietly for everyone.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      applied.

      Interesting they state 3rd party routers may be eligible on fibre, so I was honest with my answer and selected "other router" lets see if I get selected

      The sagem 2504n was sky's latest router at the time fibre was first launched.
      Some people are still using it on fibre.

      You are away of the mark I'm afraid. The Sagem 2504n preceded the SR models. It was probably the most widely used router on Sky, being used for ADSL and fibre through a BTO modem. It was replaced with the SR101 and then the SR102. The IPv6 tests on it have completed. They actually supplied me with one to take part in the Test, temporarily replacing my SR102.
