Sky offering wires only FTTC???


[link to this post]
 
A work colleague was able to finally get FTTC yesterday. He placed the order and was told 2-3 days no engineer visit. I told him that was a little odd beens the Openreach modem needs to be installed as well as maybe a new faceplate and testing.

he was told Sky have made an all in one router that does the VDSL work as well.

Is this correct?

To Sky having an all in one device on the way, yes and wires-only is on its way.

But no official launch from Openreach yet, it may be they have put them onto the trial, rather than the full launch.

We (on Sky) currently have the Sky Hub which is the SR101 and I've seen people saying this one - or a new one is able to do the VDSL as well.

The new black Sky hub which I think is now in the late stages of beta testing is a combined VDSL modem/router.

the SR101 dose support both ADSL and VDSL, But the built in modem is only ADSL if you look on the back of the hub there is a green bar on the bottom port this doubles as the WAN port if you put the hub into VDSL mode

So, no VDSL modem. Thus it does NOT support VDSL. IT is a router with an ADSL modem, that is all.

A router with ADSL modem, and an Ethernet switch where one port can be reconfigured to operate as an Ethernet WAN port to be precise, and thus interoperate with Openreach GEA FTTC and FTTP products.

But yes people need to be clear when saying a device supports VDSL, as can see lots of people moaning that the plug fits but nothing works.

All FTTC order must be installed by BT Openreach, without it, it won't work!
