      This is the trouble with rumours.

      Sometimes they are true, other times they are false. This is why I put this thread in the 'Rumour Mill' section.

      The fact that Reuters had posted something tends to lead people to believe that there may well be some truth behind this rumour.

      There are many other rumours that the moderators on this forum pick up on and we often have to be careful about what we post. Whilst always hopeful for a price reduction, this is one I still hope will be true. Sadly no one has provided any specific detail about what will actually happen and when.

      Now where are my thumb screws...

      You never know, it might still happen.
      After all, Reuters is generally considered to be a reliable source.

      I was caught out once with a rumour suggesting that sky would be changing to 18 month contracts for their broadband.
      This came from a very well respected member of another forum, yet ultimately it turned out to be untrue.
      Ofcourse, that doesn't mean sky didn't think about it, or even get very close to doing it.

      It's still worth posting news like that, if or when you come across it Deadman.

      ...

      It's still worth posting news like that, if or when you come across it Deadman.
      Could not have said it all better.

      The sources I tend to get supplying information need to have their identity protected. If the information is from one source only then we won't post anything which will identify it. As DM doesn't work for Sky (or does he now ) as he was just cross-posting the Reuters story, there was no danger in us putting someone's job at risk as the information was already out there.

      Of course specific details about new products which are in beta testing with suitable NDAs do require us to respect that. However there is nothing stopping those in the beta testing from composing a set of documents like we did for the new EPGs and Sky Hub SR101 for publication when the products are made available.

      So if anyone knows of something happening that we should know...

      I dont think anyone is to blame, or wrong, to quote the article. It was in a supposedly reputable newspaper.
      The lesson for me is to take these rumours with a pinch of salt in future. Or ignore them completely.
      If you are interested in Apple products, following rumours can be a full-time occupation.

      Promoting SFU or SFUP in these exchanges IMHO is excellent news if it is true. At the current pricing, SFU would be a far better product than Sky Connect for a few additional ús each month. However i recall a member who posted recently where his exchange has FTTC, but not at his cabinet yet. He was stuck on Connect.

      Probably find the FTTC cabs connect back to a larger exchange which may have the Sky equipment even if the local exchange does not ;-)

      After all Fibre links can go 10's if not 100's of miles before the signal degrades to the point it needs regenerating.

      Someone who works in the media industry on Digital Spy says possibly expect an announcement tommorow. Hopefully it will be true.
