Sky LLU when area is BT FTTC...


[link to this post]
 
I am currently on the Sky LLU package, which i am pretty happy about.
My exchange (Folkestone) has just been put on BT's list for FTTC in 2012, will this affect me in any way i.e will Sky be able to provide me a FTTC service as a result, or would i have to either stay with sky on far slower speeds but unlimited useage, or go to BT and have fantastic speed but not be able to make the most of it due to useage caps?

Sky could offer a FTTC product, but nothing has been announced yet. BT Infinity has unlimited usage.

But, if you use P2P be aware that at peak times this IS throttled.

That is Infinity Option 1, Option 2 is unlimited.

BT -> Zen -> F2S -> Bulldog -> Be* -> BT Infinity

unless i'm wrong, that would be over 12TB a month if i could get max speed right?

no way BT is allowing that. got to be a FUP that comes along with it to prevent that.

It's unlimited, subject to traffic management: http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10495...

hate how they're allowed to lie like that.

why not allow them to advertise it as free - apart from the monthly fee [censored]

ta for the info though

I was under the impression that there was also a 300gb FUP. Although I could be wrong. Have read this on the BT forums I think.

EDIT: THIS FUP WAS REMOVED IN APRIL. IT IS UNLIMITED, yes with traffic management but this doesn't stop you downloading several TB a month,
