      You need to on an exchange enabled with sky's LLU, and have your telephone line and call package with sky.

      If you read the small print on the register an interest page it has the basic info there.

      If you dont have your phone line with Sky then you would need to get that switched over then you can have Sky Fiber installed.

      I think you will find that prety standard nowadays that any ISP's broadband comes as packages with various call options and advertised as + line rental, also i think you will find most ppl on here would recomend Sky Fiber over BT Infinity everytime so its well worth getting the line switched over to Sky and you must be on a Sky LLU exchange if you are currently on Sky Broadband Unlimited as your profile says so shouldnt be a problem

      Re: Sky fibre broadband

      Just as a point of interest, BT have launched a new web page for 80/20 speeds that indicates that an increase in speed will mean an increase in price. Various rumours had mentioned (hoped) of a free speed bump to compete with VM.

      BT's new web page can be found HERE

      I spoke to the guys at BT the other day about this. He said there would be no price increase when they up the speeds to 80/20. He may have been wanting me to sign up tho so don't no how accurate this is.

      The Sky fibre guy that phoned me told me that Sky 40Mbps down/2Mbps up was probably for the trial and that he wouldn't be surprised if speed went up when Sky went live with the roll out, to compete with other suppliers. He wouldn't give any more away than that.

      The page refers to a new price for the new speeds and don't forget the lease from BTO is more too, so I think it's likely that it will have some sort of increase.

      Just like most companies contact centre staff/agents are normally last to no know when things change and more often than not the public no more lol

      That's true for sure lol. If BT do increase the price of 80/20 they would be shooting themselves in the foot. Like you said, with Virgin doubling there speeds at no extra cost, and SUFB coming on to the market I don't no how they will compete.

      If Openreach increase the price of the FTTC 80/20 product, it will affect all ISP's who resell the FTTC product, including BT Retail and Sky.

      BTO will charge the ISP's the increase for this product, it is then upto the ISP's whether they absorb this cost and continue to offer the faster FTTC product at the same price, or charge their customers a little more.

      My gut feeling, is that most ISP's will have a tiered pricing structure, with a small premium being attatched to the faster product.

      Keep in mind also, that not every VDSL2 customer, has a line capable of utilising the full 80/20 product.


      "...We're through the looking-glass here people, none of us have ever done anything like this before... except Mike, who as we all know, once stole a Tank and tried to invade Paris!"
