      Installed

      Well, up and running

      Really not a fan of the openreach modem but it will do for now until Sky get a proper solution sorted.

      Not sure if i'm going to unlock the BTO modem, might put some effort in trying to get a non Sky router working though.

      Did you ask the engineer to get Sky to ring me so I can get some shiny Fibre too?

      Well done

      Have you rung them yourself? Some have managed to get it through ringing up. It may depend on whether the agent you get has been trained on Fibre, but it is worth a try.

      Loving all these speeds, how far away are your cabinets? Ping is a little high compared to other installs but still great speeds.

      Not bad for 20 and don't forget you get free use of "The Cloud -wifi" when your away from home!
