      Compared to my distance, that is a stones throw (add another 1000 meters or so).

      We called BT and they said it wasn't available. So I have registered my interest in Infinity and Sky Fibre Optics so I get notified when it is available.

      I'm sure they will get round to you eventually. BTO seem to be gradually filling the gaps in fibre coverage in and around Basingstoke.

      Re: Sky Fibre connection

      Just checked with bt infinity and last time is was 36mb down 8.2 up, but now it says 40mb down 10mb up, a bit better than my present stats of 3mb down 796 up.

      The green cabinet is about 70 yards away.

      B J I could probably walk faster than my Sky unlimited BB so having fibre optic installed on 27 or 28th March will be like owning a Ferrari F12

      Yes make sure your keyboard or mouse does not catch fire, more chance of mine freezing.
