      How many times do they need to push the fact that the FTTC speed is increasing to 80mb/s in one document?

      Great news.

      Keen about pricing, availability and offerings from other ISPs.

      very true lol but the bit i wanted to point out was the fiber on demand (i was totaly knackered after a 14 hour shift so could have posted more clear, sorry all) where anyone in a FTTC area can have FTTP/H as long as they will the install costs (other forums have this at around 1 to 2k altho this is pure guessing)

      heres a link to the site i saw it on first and i appologise if it breaks any unwritten rules about linking to other BB sites

      Sorry, I wasn't having a dig at yourself. In the statement it was repeated a few times.

      As for linking to other forums, members do this all the time. The only thing that is asked is when someone quotes from another source that the source is credited.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but this will only be available from Sky as and when BT upgrade the infrastructure from their exchanges to the cabinets.
      For the majarity of us this could still be a long way off yet.
      Happily mine is ready end of March. Watched the cabinet installed.
      Will be 200mtrs instead of 3.5 Miles.

      Also, they are going to up the FTTC speed from 40 to 80 Mb from April. Spoilt for choice

      Will Sky be able to offer the same 80 Mb, as they use the infrastructure of BTO ?
      They could, but rental charges are higher so that would probably end up being another fibre product rather than upgrading existing users to 80Mb.

      well when sky release it in April they will start off with 40mb but they may test 80mb to see if it can cope.

      Of course it'll be able to cope. BT will be offering it and their backhaul from what I can tell isn't as large as Sky's, so it's a moot point. It seems to be down to rental costs at the end of the day which is why I can see two fibre packages being offered.

      Re: Sky - new fibre launch

      Shortly after Infinity was launched, a lot of customers were complaining about the capped speeds in the evenings and weekends.

      I can only guess that Sky wants to roll out Sky Broadband Unlimited Fibre (SBUF) and increase the speed once they have established that the backhaul can cope without any performance issues.

      It isn't just the backhaul that will need to be improved, but also the servers. I am guessing that all this equipment will need more than a little trial testing to put it through it's paces.

      With the gradual increase now in SBUF customers over the next couple of months, I expect that this equipment will be pushed more. If all the stats keep to what has been predicted, then the next step will hopefully be to increase the speeds.
