BT Infinity or Sky fibre?


[link to this post]
 
Right Virgin media in my area have gone right [censored] with a minimum 3 week lead on fixing a major issue.

Basically I am paying for 100mb and getting about 0.5mb for about 14 hours. I normally get 100mb at 1am.

Anyway. I can get about 76/18mb on BT Infinity. And 40/10 or so on Sky.

I used to have Sky at a older house closer to the exchange and I liked it. Well more then I like Virgin atm.

So any opinions?

Cheers.

This decision is all based on whether you use peer-to-peer. If you do use P2P then Sky is probably your best option as there is no traffic management, however the sheer speed of BT's offering might well weigh it out.

Compare each policy
BT: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10495...
Sky: http://www.sky.com/shop/terms-conditions/broadband/n...

If you do not use P2P then there's no reason to choose Sky because the product is slower, so go for BT Infinity.

Sky do offer a Sky Unlimited Fibre Pro service, which should give the 76/18 that BT quote.

Good idea, then the OP can get un-restricted P2P at them speeds too.

Sky Unlimited Fibre Pro is an 80/20 product so is a tad faster than BT's 76/19 offering if your line will support it although it is £4 more expensive than Infinity Option 2.

I thought 40 was the highest with Sky for now. When I put my details in it just says 40mb.

Then that's probably your lot from Sky.

Edit: It says you need to call them for Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro

Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro
If you have even higher internet demands, you should try Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro. It costs £30 a month with Sky Talk Freetime and Sky Line Rental (£12.25 a month), and is available to new Sky Broadband customers in selected Sky Fibre areas.

Simply call 08442 410 602 to check availability and speed.

Does it not run down the same line as BT?

So why the massive difference?
