      TV advert doesn't say that though?

      Pretty sure it says 4 times faster than Sky, although checking YouTube for the BT advert shows 4 x faster than average UK Broadband Speeds. Maybe they have redone them now?

      EDIT: They have obviously changed them already, it has just been on TV and it no longer says 4 times faster than Sky.

      It used to mention Sky, but I just saw the student one and is stated '4 times faster than the average UK connection'.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      At the moment, yes it's 4x and they specifically say than Sky but if BT had to change the ad they could make it 5x and cover it by the small print. I'd welcome such ads as they'd encourage Sky to raise the upload speed ;-)

      Don't want to tread on any anyone's toes but thought as a newbie on the forum I would use my first post to investigate and reply to Pazza's postcode query.

      Hi Pazza, looking at the table from the end of last year 100% of the lines from your postcode are connected to cabinet P140.

      Hope this helps
