says very little about the speeds that they will supply or the price that they intend on charging,

Speeds - same as the other Openreach based suppliers.

Price, TalkTalk another LLU provider charge a £10 premium so would expect around £7.50 to £12.50 extra.

Old form


[re: epyon] [link to this post]
 
Isn't that just an old form on an updated web page?

I registered my interest for Sky Fibre over 18 months ago using a similar looking form on their website.

Edit - It is indeed the same form that Sky used on - http://skyhispeedbb.com/ - which is now down.

Edit 2 - http://web.archive.org/web/20100125182409/http://www...

Registered my interest but it's a badly designed form page.

It wouldn't accept my street address as St., so had to enter Saint, which is not what the street is called.

[re: mil1401] [link to this post]
 
This is really old news. Sky launched a site to register people's interest in a Fibre trial 2 years ago. Since then the site was closed and no news was initially available.

However, staff members have been using Sky FTTC trial connection for some time now and last summer a trial was set up in South Harrow for Sky FTTP.

There is a lot of speculation as to whether or not Sky are taking FTTC & FTTP seriously, but no news is currently available as to when a fibre product will be made available, how much it will cost or whether it will be using BTO's FTTC network or Sky's own Fibre network.

What's the deal with the way BT runs FTTC? I've not looked into it that much, do BT Retail own the VDSL Concentrator in the cab or is it Openreach equipment?

Will Sky be able to just use the fibre to the exchange and then, at that point, jump onto their LLU network or would they have to use BT 21CN to transit their data?

If the latter, are we not going to see almost as poor service as Connect from their FTTC service if an when it ever arrives?

The service guarantees a minimum of around.. Uh.. 16mbit (right?) From your cabinet to the headend exchange. At the exchange the isp can then either opt to use 21cn, or can be provided with an ethernet handover, which they them need to be able to connect to their own llu equipment (this subsequently then gives them the full responsibility for their backhaul)
