      But you said:

      Surely it would be nice and quiet there.

      It's available at my exchange, it,s available 30 seconds from my house, but it's not available to me. My cabinet has no plans to be upgraded, very depressing considering it's at arms length.

      OH HAPPY DAYS!! SFUB now available in Basingstoke. Having waited for 2 years (Basingstoke was in Phase 2 of Infinity rollout in May 2010) and after the gutted feeling of it not being available from the 13th April, but this morning I checked using "my sky" logged in and it said that it was available. I didn't trust it so called up and the sky contact centre said YES also. Now ordered with install date of 10 July at 2.80 router and 50 install, received confirmation emails etc. Having only had 480Kbps download, I have looked on with jealousy even those who have 4Mbps while reading this site every day. Counting the days down. ESPIO go check and order. Let us know if you are successful too!! Advised I will get 34.8Mbps, next door neighbours get 38Mbps from Infinity so that would be another cherry on top!!

      Congratulations! If your neighbours are getting 38Mbps then I expect you will receive a very similar speed to them. The speed estimator that Sky give is most of the time very inaccurate, I was quoted 30Mbps but when installed received the full 40 meg and was told by the engineer that the max attainable rate on my line was much greater so fingers crossed the same will be for you

      I got quoted 35.5 and achieve the full 40 with room to spare, so you look good for the full 40/2.

      You will love it

      Nope, still can't get it dammit. Logged in and checked. What are the first four digits of your postal code? I'm RG24. Just to see the distance difference between us. What a massive let down though =(.

      What a bugger. Can you get BT Infinity? Assume you've got the big green cabinets near you?
      I'm RG22 in Kempshott, Suggest you give Sky a call on 08442 411818 as I know of four other people to have signed up since this morning.
