      My sky fibre optic update

      I had mine installed exactly 2 weeks ago today. Thankfully all still going well and just did another speedtest:

      Looking at the http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...re-thread.html not one person is disappointed that already has it.

      Which imo is a very good sign.

      There are very little signs of any problems whatsoever, with the fibre speed side of things.

      Which ever ISP people take, its nice to see that fibre offers a consistent speed. This is great news for those who in the past have had to live with slow speeds and poor connections.

      indeed. its great. thankfully it was just at the time I was signing up with BT Infinity....then got told by sky "we have it".... and switched.

      so yeh, getting great speeds. its been 2 weeks and they said it takes 2 weeks for the line to stablise. all seems fine...we will see what happens in the next few days for sure.

      what ever happens with the new speed increases, you have much better speeds than you did.
