      My exchange won't be changing to fibre until September, so I've got plenty of time to get Sky up and running as my supplier - I've decided to switch to them as they're considerably cheaper than BT. Presumably switching then shouldn't be a problem?

      Remember that Sky may take a few months to install the correct equipment once the exchange has gone live.

      On top of this, BTO has delayed the 'Going live' date on many exchanges recently and many have had their installation dates delayed previously.

      As Gorebrush has stated though, switching from Sky Broadband Unlimited to SBUF will be relatively easy. Currently Sky are shipping two versions of the Sagem 2504N router. They each have a slightly different firmware installed. This situation may change nearer the time when you can order SBUF.
