      Can't get sky fibre in Basingstoke (exchange THBZ) it seems.

      Exchange enabled for FTTC? yes
      connected to fibre enabled cabinet? yes (and BT wholesale checker says yes)
      sky LLU? yes
      correct kind of sky LLU? apparently not, sky web site says no

      I'm disappointed but I'm sure it'll be worth the wait.

      I cannot get it at this moment in time, but I can wait for now as I already get 18/1.2 on unlimited. Hopefully good things come to those who wait.

      A wait of a couple more months doesn't really seem so bad. Who knows there might be cashback offers by then (I can dream can't I?!)

      We can't get it .

      The streets in Lancaster were dug up a few years ago ready for FTTP to be laid only for the company to go bust so we have the ducting ready but no fibre run in it. Some cabs have been done for FTTC so I hope it's just a case of waiting patiently for it to arrive to my area.

      On a positive note, think of it this way... this give sky time to look at how many have taken their current offer hey by the time you guys get it they may have laaunched faster speeds

      Exactly; it'll be like upgrading from dial-up to 1Mb ADSL rather than dial-up to 512kb, so much more satisfying. If we knew what speedy internet goodness we'd be getting a decade later...

      I think sky, even though late to the game are in a very strong position for the future. Being able to see how other companies have dealt with there fibre product, maybe the good things they have achieved and the mistakes they may have made means sky could be a market leader for superfast broadband in the not to distant future.
