      In a word no! Sky could allow a 40/10 or 80/20 profile at any time depending on what agreement and prices has been arranged with BTO. The only way it could benefit you if by making sky push to match speeds that other ISP's are offering

      so surely there must be something in the works regarding the new BT speeds going "live" on the same day as sky officially launching sky fibre optic?

      If there is, it has been closely guarded.

      There are rumours of faster speeds being trialled, but no one will put their necks on the line and say when it will actually launch.

      Saying that, Sky could surprise everyone tomorrow, if it does launch with different packages etc
