      Sky fibre only uses your BT Line and the BTO fibre cabinet once its reaches the exchange it flips on to sky's equipment and backhaul which is how it works now with normal ADSL2 connection does it not?

      To get sky fibre you need to have and be connected to a fully working Fibre Cabinet,
      Your exchange needs to be accepting orders
      Your telephone and Talk service needs to be with Sky on SVBN via a sky enabled LLU exchange

      FTTC is the method in which you can get access to a fibre product, Infinity and SBUF are products that run on the FTTC service. As long as your fibre cabinet is enabled you can choose which ever ISP you want as long as they supply a FTTC product

      If Infinity is not available, no you wouldn't be able to get SBUF - However if Infinity is available, and you don't have Sky Kit in the exchange, then you still wouldn't get SBUF

      There are other conditions as well, ie you have to have Sky Talk

      Re: Sky fibre optic on non LLU?

      From the information currently available, of which there is a great deal leaking out now, there appears to be no Sky Fibre product based in an exchange without Sky's LLU Equipment.

      There is nothing technically preventing Sky from changing this stance and they may well launch a Fibre product at a later date.

      It has however been pointed out that after how badly many people view the Sky Broadband Connect package, it is unlikely that Sky will walk blindly into using the BTW backhaul for a Fibre product. There are stories filtering through that the Connect package is being improved. This should be reflected in some revised T&Cs.

      I guess the headline information thus far has been to do with Sky using Fibre and their own equipment to pass the data back to their own servers. All the required testing appears to be to confirm that every exchange with both Sky's LLU and FTTC is able to be used for SBUF.

      From next month Sky will be launching SBUF. We may see other products launching at the same time.
