      No virgin option for those of us in Horsham. I think the council didn't want them digging up all the roads.

      Easy tiger, the 15meg Moxey was refering to, was the minimum guaranteed speed you will get on FTTC. But infact, it's not actually as cut and dry as over 15meg, or nothing. If you get FTTC installed and it's under this, you have the option to cancel without incurring any penalty. Or, you can stick with it, if you wish.

      It has nothing to do with what you currently sync with ADSL. There are quite a few member on this forum with sub 5meg ADSL who are going to benefit greatly from VDSL2 speeds.

      I think it means you need a minimum of 15Mb FTTC.

      Doesn't matter if you have 9/10 ADSL now........................ Think you might have mis-understood?

      You'd have to be a bloody long way out to only get 9/10 on FTTC...........

      From 19 down to 15 for example. As opposed to a maximum of 2 from Sky. I don't think I'll loose sleep over that one - now that I've gone over to the other side.

      Me included. I get 5 today. Should get 55 once Infinity 2 kicks in. 1100% improvement will be nice. (for now!)

      Thanks. Yeh. I guess there's the principle still.
      Lets face it. Sky / BT; I think everyone will have a much better experience once their onto some kind of FTTC product. This week is a very significant week for the rollout of Fibre in the UK. I'd love to get figures on the user adoption from Sky, BT, Virgin and Talk Talk. Be very interesting to see how this is all playing out

      I do sympathise though with those that still have to wait.

      Actually, in the grand scheme of things, this week isn't as monumental as you might think, certainly not passing any major milestones.

      BTO Have been re-selling their FTTC offerings to around half a dozen ISP's for quite a while now.
      The fact that today, Sky have finally launched their underpowered VDSL2 product, is a drop in the ocean.

      It's just another ISP re-selling a partially unbundled BTO product. I'm sure i read that SBUF will be available to 30% of Sky BB customers, and only a small percentage will opt for it.

      EDIT: Still think you jumped ship a little too soon, I'm certain Sky will catch up, they always do. I'll never move away from Sky unless another ISP offers a truel unlimited package to match Sky, at a cheaper price. Or Sky move the goal posts.

      Apparently Sky will also not be allowing Fibre transfers either at the moment.

      In the very small print of the legal section of the Sky.com/broadband webpage is says:

      Sky Fibre Unlimited: Availability subject to location and survey. 50 standard set-up. Not available to existing fibre customers except cable.


      So they don't even want migrations at the moment, it really seems that Sky are trying to put road blocks in on this package.

      I think that's just because the systems can't support some of the transfers. Some people have been told to buy Sky Unlimited first, so that they can then upgrade to Sky Fibre.
