      You'll find that a lot with Sky. They are told not to say anything so much that when the truth is available, they will still deny it.

      I guess it would be nice to roll SBUF out sooner, but Sky has to train all theiadvisersrs first.

      Re: Sky Fibre hopeful

      Is there any kind of "maximum capacity" to a fibre cabinet?

      I doubt the uptake of Fibre would be very high in my area, but I'd hate to think 100's of BT Infinity subscribers will swamp my cabinet before I have a chance to order Sky.

      No phone call yet and someone has been at home constantly (and I am now in recovery after my operation so i'll be at home for the next few weeks)

      I don't want to miss my chance at Fibre!

      BTO are only connecting 100 per cabinet at the moment from what engineers are telling people

      I dreamt last night that Sky phoned me up to offer me SBUF. Then I woke up...

      Just be grateful that it wasn't something along the line of getting TalkTalk to pipe it through Virgin's cable, with BT's capping during peak times.
