      Pete.
      I don't no why it say's 40.0-40.0 mbps but that is your estimated speed. Mine came back 35.3-35.3 mbps when I went to order.

      Hmmm ... no traffic management I can understand but how does BT suffer contention and Sky don't ?

      Switching to BT would be pain and is 6pm more expensive. Do I really need the extra 30Mbps at the moment ??

      Also, the mate at work who got BT Infinity yesterday - was told he'd get 76Mbps but speed tests last night were only showing 30-35Mbps.

      make sure you all update the "Who got sky fibre thread" you can always go back in and edit your post once you go live!

      Step 1. Get Sky to launch fibre
      Step 2. Get Sky to increase upload speeds
      Step 3. Get Sky to offer better routers or allow customers to use thier own!

      I'm Birds Estate, just down the hill from you. I phoned 08442 411 818 and tried that way but "computer says no". So if you can't order on line there's no point in phoning as they basically see the same system -the first-line call-centre folk can't do anything.

      ordered sky fibre 27th april 8-12pm estimated speed is 40mb but i expected that as the cabinet is very close ;-)
      and its free installation i'v had to give up my free broadband for 6 months but that was coming to an end. My current speed is about 3mb so a huge speed bump which i'm looking forward to using roll on the 27th !
