      FIRST of all, MAY 1 say that 1 is a little disappointed but not surprised that the much rumoured fibre product updates have not yet happened.

      SECONDly, MAY I post a reminder that BSkyB Q3 Results are due out tomorrow. No doubt there will be some announcements and press releases to go with it. Maybe some new and/or updated products and services info perhaps? A bit like what happened when Q2 results were out on 31 January - along came fibre broadband!

      Until tomorrow then...

      I understand that Sky will actually be getting free line regrades to 40/10 profiles from Openreach after some recent meetings Sky used their bargaining power to get this as doesnt actually really cost any money to do and will not be that many lines at present that need to be done.

      What Sky actually decide to do with pricing is anybodys guess at the min keep hearing various things one min confirmed free upgrades then told extra 5 a month

      Another way to look at the prices:

      Max Connection Speed Connection price Annual Rental Monthly Rental
      40 / 2 80 82.80 6.90
      40 / 10 80 88.80 7.40
      80 / 20 80 119.40 9.95


      Sure we do need to include costs such as Modem (or is this included in the 80?), router, infrastructure, support and a % for profit. However, there is still room for a decrease is the overall pricing.

      not too sure if u need to include extra prices, as in the modem. There is much more to the price list i'll post the link for price list which has current prices from 10/04/2012 so u can look into that a bit more. pls remove it if it's not allowed .

      It'd make sense they'd launch it with Q3 figures.

      I hope so, but then again, we were tipped off it was 1st - But it never happened, by the looks of it.

      Still talk of Sky offering 40/10 at some point though, just no definitive date.

      Lets see what tomorrow brings.

      Less rain for starters would be nice! lol

      I think its more when their systems are set up to be able to order things rather than a certain date..

      wasn't a bad day here yesterday but then again I didn't get up till 3pm. anyway back on topic, no changes so far that I can see when I checked 20 mins ago. Still doesn't like my phone number and address is only reporting 40-40 download.

      Not complaining, a free upgrade to 10Mb upload would be nice though...but as they say ''good things come to those who wait''

      Stop the madness, start the 80/20...

      I noticed this page is looking shiny and new, I think the mice have gotten into their wheels at Sky HQ.
