Sky's broadband network architecture


[link to this post]
 
I'm curious - I'm sure I've read on TBB that Sky's broadband network architecture is somehow rather different to that of all the other ISPs, and I was just wondering if this was indeed the case, and if so how this manifests itself?

they bought the network from easynet, which UkOnline was run on for consumers/small business

There is more to it than this, but that is a major part.

Another way of looking at it ...

It's unlike the BTw network, used by many other ISPs, and more like TT's as they're both LLU.
