      Not as yet. Work in progress but hopefully DMT tool will be VDSL compatible in the not-so-distant future.

      Line length from exchange

      while its a nice ring 80 Meg I would be more than happy to just have 40 Meg and have the upload increased to 10 Meg

      Just got off the phone with a nice chap at the Fibre Team, as I had a few queries that needed answering.

      Towards the end of the call, thought I'd steer the conversation onto the topic of upstream speeds, The guy was pretty helpful and didn't mind answering this.

      Whilst this isn't official, or guaranteed, I don't want to build you hopes up. It's just what I was told off the record.
      Current state of play, as I was informed, is that the 10mbps upstream is in discussion as we speak. They are looking to get Sky employees to test/trial this in the immidiate future. Then possibly invite some Sky Fibre customers to further assist in these trials at a later date.
      When I asked about the 80/20 product, he wouldn't ellaborate, but didn't deny either.

      Finger's crossed eh? It would appear that the 10mpbs upstream will become a reality in the future.

      Too much chatter about this unoffcially for it not to happen imo

      It wouldn't surprise me if 40/10 was the package that Sky go for, either on launch or not far off from it. If Sky were going to do this, I would have thought that staff would be first, then maybe those already being preselected, it would make perfect sense to me.

      Indeed.

      There is already Sky staff connected on a 40/10 profile in a variety of areas in the country, So I do fully expect that to be in use for the launch or not far after. Especially with other operators giving boosts and launching 80/20 products in April Sky will not want to be seen already behind the times with a new product launch.

      The other main advantage of being on a 80/20 profile is the guaranteed local bandwith in event of cabinet or exchange congestion at present it is 15mb but if you are on 80/20 that rises to 33mb obviously this only comes into places in the event of local congestion.

      I have to say I find it hard to really trust anything a BTO engineer has to say
      about what sky may or may not do considering most seem to say they didn't even know sky were doing fibre.

      I also heard that some staff are already testing 40/10 and 80/20 like it has been said in previous post I would be surprised if sky don't launch 40/10. Not long to go before we all find out any how ....

      No specific dates are available for publication. Best guess at the mo is mid-April.
