    Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro Rumour

    This is a discussion on Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro Rumour within the Sky Broadband (Fibre) Help forums, part of the Sky Broadband help and support category; So just to confirm - people have got 80/20 out of the speed checker, but never took a screenshot? :banghead:...

      All cabinets were upgraded to the 17a profile at the end of January. While it isn't outside the realms of possibility that your cab was missed, chances are the speeds you're being quoted now are all you will be able to achieve.

      There appear to be no signs of SBUF Pro being available to order on the Sky website at the moment. I guess until then the highest you will get from the Sky checker is 40 down (it isn't showing the up speed).

      For anyone who wishes to see what their potential speed could be, either use the BTO Modem hack to check the stats, ask your BTO Engineer when your SBUF is installed or use the BT Infinity Checker.

      Yep, Mr BT modem will be hacked as soon as Mr BT man has delivered it.

      That or I might fill him with tea and biccies and see if he'll tell me

      He might be stuffed from all the mugs of Tea and biccies already, so you might want to give him a bottle of your home made wine to take home instead

      Perhaps there will be an announcement and/or more information (maybe even the start of some advertising?) on 2 May when BSkyB announces Q3 results.
