Re: Currently have Sky FTTC, Now TV unavailable

Seems a good price to be honest, £29 with no contract and now TV entertainment pass. ok there is a £44 set up fee.
At the moment i am paying £32 for plusnet and then £6.99 on top for my now Tv in just over 6 months i would have paid for the connection fee.

Maybe time to have a think about it.

If you have fttc with sky you dont need to obtain login details anymore. Provided its in the right format. I run a vdsl modem and pfsense. Ipv4 and ipv6 work just fine. 3rd party modem/routers need to support skys dhcp requirements or they wont connect. There are requirements for ipv6 too if you want to be fullly compatiable.

My connection has been very good with low latency.

Have a look at skyuser.co.uk - plenty of info or just ask.

Cheers

Sky Fibre Pro - Zyxel vmg8324 (v14 bridge mode) + PFSENSE 2.4.0 with ipv6 - ECI cab, G.INP disabled as of 8th April 2016

Just make sure you have a decent router - the one they supply is horrible, has green wording on it and works like a sweaty sock!

Okay thanks, I will try my Billion on it and see what happens. I think it can do it.

wi-fi is not that important to me as long as it picks up the chromecasts in the same room.
this computer is on wired.
I did hear that the sky router do not have gigabit Ethernet, which is a bit strange. i am using the older hub zero at the moment, it is ok, but i doubt it would work with sky/now

If plusnet wants to knock a few quid off my broadband that would be fine as well.

Dosen't need it while we are rocking 80/20 lines - well unless you do internet transfers.
