Sky Fibre


[link to this post]
 
Hi folks.

I'm currently with BT Infinity and am looking to change to Sky Fibre.
I currently get the 80/20 Mbps unlimited and normally get speeds of 75/15 Mbps

When I put my details in the Sky line checker they say I can only get the up to 38 Mbps fibre. How come BT can give me the higher speeds but not Sky? Is the Sky product I want the Unlimited Fibre Pro?

Sorry for the ramble,

Thanks,

Adam

Thanks for the quick reply. Any reason why The Sky checker won't offer it to me, as I'm getting the equivalent from BT?

Thanks

Just ordered Sky Fibre Pro myself. Sky do themselves no favours hiding it, I know a few people who went with other providers because they thought SKY only offered 40/10.

I don't understand it either. When they first started offering it via phone orders only I thought it was while they were configuring their ordering systems or something, but it has stayed phone only, and on a premium rate phone number no less (probably free for Sky Talk users, but still chargeable for people yet to join).

Maybe they don't want to attract the really heavy users that are likely to go for 80/20? It's the only reason I can think of.

At £30/m (without phone) the Sky Fibre Pro service seems a tad more expensive than the competition for the same speeds. The standard service is a lot better priced.
