      Re: About the new router Sky is testing

      V3 was only ever issued to James Murdoch after he complained that his home broadband connection didn't work very well. Alledgedly, the V3 router is the only one which works properly on Sky's broadband service, but the custom-designed chipset gives the router a price of $500 per unit when bought singly, falling to $300 per unit for batches of 10,000 or more. Obviously, it's not economic for Sky to release such an expensive router to ordinary subscribers.
