      As Scubbie said before, someone has got mixed up with the offers for ADSL. Funnily enough it does not even mention this under the Broadband Unlimited section where it should be, even though this page concerns that package. Other than under the ' Legal bit' there is no mention of Fibre on the page.

      Good spot.

      I've passed on the info to someone at Sky. It is an error though. Sky Fibre Unlimited is marketed as an 'up to 38mb' product.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      I have just done the BT fibre check and its says.

      75-80 Mbs down
      19-20 Mbs up.

      Just looked in my sky account and it says i can get fibre up to 40mbs down.

      20 Per month plus 50 activation fee. Has the activation fee always been that price?

      The Sky website only advertises the Sky Fibre Unlimited (SFU) product. This is the one limited to 40mb d/l and 10mb u/l.

      You will need to call Sky for the SFUP product if you are interested in the faster speeds as it isn't available through the website. SFUP cost 30 per month, plus Sky Talk Line Rental 15.40 per month.

      Yes, it now costs extra for an engineer attended install.

      Sky now advertise Pro on the website, but you still have to call 08442 410 802 to get it.

      An engineer install is not really necessary, self install is extremely easy. Unfortunately some people who have poor wiring and do not have a central filter, will suffer difficulties, the same as ADSL.
