      Getting fibre installed today, can't wait so long 1.5mb hello 40.

      Can anyone tell me if my laptop WLAN 801.11g will handle the speeds ok or would I need to get a n USB card?

      Re: Fibre getting installed today

      Could you try a speed test by connecting your Laptop via the Ethernet cable. Disable the WiFi on the Laptop whilst doing this too.

      If the result still comes back at under 30mb, then I found some relevant comments on the BT Infinity forums which indicated that there is a cap put in before the Installation. This should be automatically lifted but it appears that it isn't always happening. You may have to give Sky a call to chase this.
