      This really has thrown a spanner in the works ...

      Thought I was all set to order Sky Fibre but now the offer is looking poor in comparison to BT's latest Infinity offers. If Sky are going to charge 50 install fee then there really is no competition. The 2 Mbps upload is a bit pants too. I know that BT is traffic managed whereas Sky isn't but... still tempting

      However, let's see what they have up their sleeve for tomorrow

      Dunno, I'd take Sky @ 40 over BT @ 80 anyday of the week anyway!

      With how the economy is and how fierce competition is compared to 10 years ago - I'd say Sky have no choice but pick their game up; I'd also say 40/2 is their trialling profile. What's with this talk about a potential push back to the end of the month? BTO are offering 40/10.. and some ISPs have taken up that offer.

      BTO are offering 80/20 as of tomorrow to all current customers and new for no extra charge. The catch with existing customers is that they will be tied in for another 18 months.

      Well that's BT showing their true colours, and to think I was considering their fibre offerings!

      And what makes me laugh is that the people on the BT forum are like "Yeah well done BT" and "Sky are only doing 40/2, so yeah you carry on and go to them and enjoy slower speeds" (or words to that effect)

      Sky Fibre hasn't even launched... who actually knows what speeds will be offered, and I'm damn sure they'll be up there offering 80Mb when they feel they can do so.

      I believe the tie in is for another 12 months actually. Not that I've been looking
