      It's just nice to see positive comments and stable connections on such a new service (SBUF). It gives hope to all of us who have had to live with such slow speeds for so long.

      Connected on the 28th of February



      Was lucky to see 3Mb before.

      Hasn't been 100% reliable so far, disconnected for half an hour on the first night and two other occasions. Seems to be the BT modem losing sync. Overheating the first time but repositioned and shouldn't be an issue now.

      I'm also approx 700m from my cab, out of interest, what was your speed estimate when you ordered / in your confirmation letter?

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      Apparently my post code can now have fibre, as of 3rd of March, bt infinity or plusnet fibre... but there are around 6 cabinets near me, none of which have a fibre cabinet next to them, I've walked up and down and around and haven't seen one. Closest fibre cabinet is way past the end of my street on the other side of the main road, just one amongst 6 standard cabinets.

      Do they not have a fibre cabinet for every standard cabinet? Or does one fibre cabinet cover a few standard ones?

      I can't wait to get sky fibre, just want to be sure I can when it launches in a month

      Anyone?

      Have you checked the PCP cabinet list from the end of last year to see what cabinet number your post code is connected to?
