Fibre and BB from Sky ?


[link to this post]
 
I have ordered Fibre to be installed on the 12th Nov, but reading some posts , people have a back up adsl line in case the fibre goes down. As I have now taken out my line rental with Sky would I also get their BB lite for free ? Does the new sky router do VDSL and ADSL ?
Im asking because the cabinet on the street has been placed in an accident blackspot ! and several cars have crashed there in the last few years, so im expecting the worst, lol
Thanks

2nd adsl lines need their own line rental as nothing to do with fibre line. Sky only does one line per home

Car taking out cabinet not seen one yet, but at 20 per month for rental and adsl you must like internet or work from home

I thought you got auto free BB lite when you took out a sky phone line with a 2GB usage allowance ? wouldnt it be a first adsl line ?

The fibre broadband is running across a telephone line which will have Sky line rental on it already....

So unless you can get sky to install a second telephone line to your property it wont work how you appear to think

I realised as soon after I wrote that, that I will have FTTC and it uses my phone line from the cabinet, thanks. I only have 1 line not 2.
They knocked my HD pack down to £2.50 a month, for 12 months, when I got it, so works out a bit cheaper for me smile and there is the £80 cashback for existing customers from "topcashback" if it ever turns up, lol

Zero problems with it here. Had it pre-launch too and everything happened seamlessly. Even Openreach were spot on with the engineer calling beforehand to warn of the ADSL switch off etc and accommodated my needs very well.
