      See the Sky forum: Sky Help Forum - Update

      I don't know if applications are closed now. I really can't be bothered to read through the 10 pages of "I want it" when the instructions were quite clear : Send a PM to the support staff with the requested details.

      Remember Samsung, Pace, DRX780 boxes will follow later. Notice the absence of the Thomson Sky+ HD STB.

      All these added features will be gradually made available one the new EPG has been rolled out.

      Not 100% true.

      As with ADSL & ADSL2+, not everyone will get the maximum connection speeds.

      It has also been suggested that as more people become activated in an individual FTTC cabinet, I understand that there can be interference between the connections, reducing the connection a little further.

      Of course the other factor is that not everyone can get FTTC or FTTP at present.

      I am waiting for my exchange to be upgraded.

      I'm thinking of maybe hiding my fibre cabinet, or at the very least using some sort of camouflage so bto can't find it anymore. Is this feasible

      Someone on another forum is saying that they phoned Sky and was told that an upload increase will be taking place from 1st May. Does anyone have any further information on this?

      We MAY have been hinting at this ages ago, we will have to wait and see, but that was the impression we were given.
