Sky 80/20 Service


[link to this post]
 
Just called Sky to apply for 80/20 service. Was told that it is not available until June. I am not a current Sky BB customer. Rumours were that this product is now available to new users? Thoughts?

Some Sky LLU exchanges don't have the pre-requisite hardware/capacity/links to do 80/20 yet, or even 40/2

Also Sky LLU footprint does not totally match the Openreach FTTC footprint

I was considering both Sky and BT for 80/20.
I was concerned when I spoke to Sky and they asked whether I really needed the extra speed.
It appears to be more expensive than BT too if available.

I bet your excited about that, especially if you're coming from a slow ADSL line.
