      AIUI, DLM will run constantly on the line but will kick off at full speed and drop down the profiles if problems are detected. So there's no training period as line conditions are constantly monitored by the system.

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      I do hope all goes well for you andrewjr. You could be #1 in the country for fibre. Well at least to us on here lol.
      I just wished now that when the sky fibre team called me the other day I had simply said "yes do it now", as opposed to "can you call me back in a couple of days while I do some research" !! What a prat I feel now!
      I take it you do realise that as of 1pm today every member here is going to be logged on here awaiting news from you lol.

      Good Luck... By the way once it's all installed can you post some photos of the Faceplate along with the New Sky FTTC Router if possible... I will be calling Sky Today & making further enquiries....

      Hi.

      You may want to have a read of the FAQ thread which gives you all the info that has been released so far. Andrewjr has already uploaded photos of the router and at the moment the fibre trial is by invite only. As suggested on your other post register your interest and see if you get a call back.
