      Why I wanted to chip in is because of a simple procedure that many people across the country has: Safe drop spots.

      Many households across the country ask the Royal Mail to leave packages in a specific place where they will be safe during the day. Sometimes the routers have needed to be signed for in the past, is this the case at the moment?

      If you are expecting something, see if you can grab your friendly postie a few days beforehand and ask if they are prepared to do this and if they need something in writing to confirm it.

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      Sky informed me that the package needs to be signed for. Failing tht it will go back to the local depot with a form in my letter box for personal collection.
      I will need to check back through posts to see how long before installation people have been receiving their router.

      No problem. I wasn't sure which service Sky are currently using.

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      i didn't have to sign for mine, the postie left it outside my front door (which is inside as i live in a flat) as i didn't get there in time to answer it.

      my router arrived a few days before the installation date

      In which case, given that my installation is on Monday, I wonder if I should contact the fibre team and ensure mine is on way. The last thing I want now is for the BTO engineer to arrive on Monday morning only to find I don't have the router and thus put me back in a queue for install !
