Re: Sky Ultrafast

Wonderful Brian... for the those that can get it - "Ultrafast available in Ultrafast Areas only (approx. 10% of UK properties). Speeds vary by location..."

Still better than a poke in the eye, or not. Wink

Re: Sky Ultrafast

As I understand it the 10% is the area covered by OpenReach.

Yourself included of course (as it applies to BTOR FTTP-coverage areas as stated by bmc)    Wink

 

PS It'll be interesting to see how prices move with a bit more competition entering the market.

Which goes to show what a good deal we're getting by staying where we are!  Wink

 

PS @Minivanman 

Cheap even with the extra £2.50 pm for not having a PN phone line (sorry couldn't resist)  Wink

Re: Sky Ultrafast

So, I was just about to post that FTTP was not showing up on Sky for my post code when I checked the ISPReview article again.

 

Turns out (apparently) that only g.Fast has launched today with FTTP due later in the year.
