      Google Broadband not compatable with Sky Router

      I was planning to sign up for the new free broadband service from Google (Tisp) but find that it uses a direct fibre optic link and I can't find an optical port on my Sky router to enable me to connect to it.
      Is it possible to fit some kind of adapter, I realise I may have to flush the router to get rid of the Sky custom firmware.
      Please help as its a limited offer

      Don't worry, you don't need a Sky modem for the fibre service. Just stick the cable up your bum and think "internet".

      Let me remind you - the TiSP offer is a joke, But Google DO offer WiFi broadband in the USA only!
