They're already all in bed together.
sky+BT    talktalk+BT
The fights only over who gets the biggest share of profits, not who gives the best service.

Re: sky+talktalk

the 10million there putting together to launch the venture with wont even cover the cost of digging up the road's to lay the fibre across York never mind buying all the actual hardware .....(NTL reportedly spent 10 million laying cables across 1/3 of Southampton and that's a much smaller job than digging up around listed buildings )
sounds more like a poorly thought out plan to scare monger against BT than an actual threat to them ....
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

The basic fibre infrastructure is already there http://www.digitaltveurope.net/171602/sky-talktalk-and-cityfibre-partner-on-ultra-fast-broadband/ ;

The network will use CityFibre’s existing metro fibre infrastructure in York, and, once complete, Sky and TalkTalk will sell competing broadband services over the
new infrastructure.

The FibreCity project in York was in April 2013 said to be aiming to roll-out to 80,000 homes, which with a population estimated at 200,000 people equates to almost the whole city, and given the rules around EU state aid this obviously would have to be accomplished by CityFibre without recourse to any council funds. As things stand the City Council has been told that the roll-out of FTTH is due to start in Autumn 2013, and this is included in a Super-Connected Cities report of June 2013

I'll wonder if it will come to Newcastle upon Tyne, we could do with 1GB broadband.
