      It isn't long now.

      Besides, you will probably be having such fun on Christmas day and Boxing day that it will seem like no time at all.

      Just don't let the BTO Engineer see your portable breathalyser if you want the job completed. I might look a little worried or quickly get called away somewhere else .

      Re: fibre optic is finely live after a year of being pushed back :D

      My sky hub has finally arrived.

      however unlike other unboxing's this one did not include micro filters or adsl cable.

      it included;
      • sky hub
      • power cable
      • black ethernet cable
      • white ethernet cable



      i assumed it was supposed to come with filters and an adsl cable? has this changed?

      ok thats kool, its just weird seeing how all other unboxing's/sites show it as having the filters and cable, so its weird not having it included.

      Whilst there is one Sky Hub SR101 and one firmware for both ADSL and VDSL (Sky Fibre), there are two types of packaging.

      The microfilters are supplied with the ADSL packaging, with one Ethernet cable.

      For the Sky Fibre packaging, no filters are supplied and two Ethernet cables are supplied. One of the Ethernet cables will be required to connect the router to the BTO Modem, the other is to allow someone to connect their PC to the router.

      When you have Fibre installed, the BTO Engineer will install the VDSL Filtered Faceplate. This provides superior filtering to what the microfilters could ever achieve and is needed with FTTC.

      Please take a look at the Fibre FAQ for more information: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...dband-faq.html
