Why are Sky the only ones doing self-install FTTC?


[link to this post]
 
Pretty much as it says really - if Sky can do it presumably that means there's no reason other ISPs couldn't?

It isn't so much the engineer visit but the fact that the Sky solution is single box vs. separate modem and router.

BT do self-install on Infinity 1.

It is, as you surmise, all about the combined VDSL modem/router.

Do they do it on the 76/19 service? Or, like BT, do they still do engineer installs on that?

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Haven't a clue smile My Sky is ADSL but when the hub arrived I noticed it's VDSL as well, then read about self-installs.

I've been debating getting FTTC on the main line coming into the house, but have been put off by the thought of needing to have two boxes in the lounge permanently connected.
