      Could anyone who has signed up online answer my query about the preferred install date? Maybe I should just phone up instead.

      Thanks all.
      You can select a date if you want or take the first one the system offers you. Once an order is placed, you can reschedule the installation through Sky's online order tracker.

      Any idea for going from BT Infinity to Sky Fibre ? I was told I would need to go back to ADSL , wait and then upgrade to Sky. Seems a bit convoluted ?

      Convoluted it may be, but sadly that is how it will work =/

      Just been on to BT to confirm my contract for Infinity had expired and they have offered me a whopping discount on a 12 month contract and a speed increase, so thats me sorted til Sky get organised in my area. Now paying significantly less for 80/20 than if I had gone to Sky. Not gloating just pleased to have a "win" for once over the "Man"

      I dont think anyone can promise they never will. You can say its unlikely, doesnt fit with their current marketing strategy etc but no one can say definitively what the future holds, as no one really knows (not even Sky themselves).

      For what its worth I dont think they will introduce shaping/capping any time soon, and I certainly hope they never will but thats different from making an outright statement of fact that they never will.

      NO, sky will not traffic shape...i know this...as they advertise as unlimited, and if they so start, then it can be classed as a misleading advertisement....

      other providers, say unlimited, but they do trafffic shaping...someone tells OFCOM that, and they will be told off. But then they can say..."it is written in our T&C's" and OFCOM will back off, which I think is wrong, OFCOM should stop them from doing traffic shaping...

      But huge companies, like MPAA, RIAA, say this is a good idea, to discourage illegal P2P.....shame on them money stealing, rip-off companies. P2P has a legitimate usage...as an alternative to downloading stuff...

      What about legal P2P? Tarring with same brush.

      Just join a network that can handle it...
