      Voted 'Yes' - I will be signing up as soon as my exchange/cabinet is enabled

      Think I will be waiting a while yet though, as my exchange is listed by Openreach as a 'Future Exchange' with an RFS date of 2012. I'm looking around everyday for signs of Openreach starting work, but I've not seen anything happening

      voted no , I barely upload /download anything now and I have a 10 meg connection anyway. My ping is reasonable for gaming and can happily run 2 pc's a laptop and 3 iphones with no lag/stutter on any of them . for the extra 15 a month it isn't worth my money tbh.

      would take any fibre atm, or atleast movement towards it, seems roadworks for my cabinet was put off for some reason .(have a feeling somebody complained it was gonna be right next to a drive way, doesn't "have" tobe plenty of space the other side of the cabinet but BT will be BT.. )

      Yes. Can't wait.

      I've just saved 250 on my car insurance today which equals 12 month's Sky Fibre. It's an omen!

      Im already walking past my soon to be fibre cabinet giving it a pat on the head when walking the dog lol. I voted yes but of course its a better offering for those of us who have had slow speeds, I can understand why people with 10+meg connection may think twice.

      having read the results, I am very tempted to go for it. What really puts me off is giving my line to Sky. As well as the extra 7.50 a month extra.

      The snag is though like I keep preaching, I would probably never ever use it to its full potential anyway.

      Re: Would you take Sky Fibre?

      Just waiting on the phone call from Sky (fingers crossed) to order. My non fibre connection would be 1 Meg. I'm on BT Infinity and Sky Fibre will work out cheaper with Sky Talk as well.
      Having said that, if my non fire connection was around 10 Meg I wouldn't upgrade.

      Not interested the upstream is far to low

      22mbit down 1.2mbit up for 7.50
      or 40mbit down 2mbit up for 20

      upstream needs to be atleast 5mbit before im interested

      I can see why people far from the exchange would take it though
      but in my case its a no go
