      Thought I should share this. I signed up for sky fibre, got a connection date for 3rd March. Although I am on skytalk, sky cancelled because I have an old eurobell phone number. Sky are hoping to get this resolved sometime mid to end of March. To be fair with Sky, they did pre-warn me this could happen.

      I have some old Cisco 2504 routers that I could use, trouble is they are Ethernet only, not "FastEthernet"...
