      It's 2Gb cap and always has been. Most people would struggle to keep within this in a day never mind a month.

      Openreach has extended this trial which was due to end on 14th December 2016 to 31st March 2017 and also relaxed the ADSL minimum speed requirement from 3Mb/s to 10Mb/s.

      NGA032/16 GEA-FTTC 18/2 Mbps speed tier special offer update

      11/10/2016 For Information

      NGA Communications Providers (CPs).


      This briefing provides an update to our existing special offer on GEA-FTTC 18/2 Mbps for slow speed ADSL Lines.

      GEA-FTTC 18/2 Mbps speed tier special offer

      This briefing acts as an update to the special offer we’re currently running on GEA-FTTC 18/2 Mbps for slow speed ADSL lines. (Previous briefing ref: NGA012/16 GEA - FTTC - 18/2 Mbps SPECIAL OFFER, can be accessed on our Portal.)

      Highlights of current special offer

      • 18/2 speed tier available at £4 per line, per month. Lower than standard GEA speed tiers enabling CPs to create options to uplift end customers experiencing poor ADSL speeds.
      • Available from 15 June 2016 until 14 December 2016.
      • Special offer is subject to standard GEA-FTTC terms, conditions and prices subject to change.

      Future special offer enhancements

      From 7 November 2016, we’re enhancing the existing special offer by:


      • Adding additional qualifying cabinets.
      • Increasing the availability of the offer to apply to qualifying ADSL lines speed criteria <10Mbps. This is an uplift from our current <3Mbps speed criteria.
      • Extension of the special offer duration to run until 31 March 2017.

      Terms of the offer including duration, service level agreements, and price remain the same.

      If you have any questions, please get in touch with your Openreach sales and relationships manager who’ll be happy to help.

      For me what made me join sky was.

      static ip (they dropped this now for new customers tho) - BT you need to be on business to get static ip
      inclusive call rental
      and what I think is a better performing network, certianly in my own case sky have a POP in my city so I get excellent latency to london.

      Sky have only ever offered a static IP addresses with their Pro products.

      As for Ping values, this should not change with this product being trialled as Sky would still be using the same backhaul systems.

      It is annoying that Sky no longer sell SFUP to new customers. It was never promoted by Sky and you had to telephone them to be able to order it. SFUP is also not the cheapest 80/20 based product. As a direct resukt the numbers who have SFUP are very low. SFM should be available to order online for new customers.

      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
