      Zednet printed yesterday with the words " from Friday"

      What a day to launch.. Friday the 13th lol

      Sky set to launch cap-free fibre broadband | Networking | ZDNet UK
      They were quick off the mark then, published at 4:02pm 12th April. Even Sky had it on their site that it launched 13th early morning.

      For people like me, the increase in download speed to 40Mbps is massive.

      Personally I don't care about the upload speed (as I don't do P2P or Usenet or torrents) and at present I'm not bothered that BT have doubled their download speed (apparently my max will be 57Mbps anyway).

      Launch today (or yesterday) was pretty much drop-dead for me - if it hadn't happened, I was prepared to get my MAC today and order FTTC from another provider (and take my voice service with me too). I felt that I had waited long enough whilst living in area where fibre has been available for the past year.

      Usenet doesn't rely on upload (unless of course you are uploading to usenet)

      If you have multiple people using the your connection at the same time say all streaming a slow upload can affect your download. But like any package it's down to personal use.
