The new Sky fibre guarantee is only to the hub, does not even include tests over Ethernet
The Sky Q WiFi certainly cannot guarantee it, where each Sky Box is a booster...

They are on rather sticky ground with the whole claim don't you think?

As always if you stop and digest wording its fine, so all down to how ASA/CAP interpret things and that is highly variable

Fair enough - but the average consumer won't want to/wont think to do that - they will just see Guarantee of 55mbps and go order it. When they can't get that, it'll be a battle with Sky.

How far does this go? If my router is 3 rooms away through solid brick walls then who's to blame for not getting the guaranteed speed?

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk

That's a very good question. If it's not even based on Ethernet speed then (to me) it seems pointless

I agree that distance and walls etc are going to be a factor in what wi-fi speed you get but getting just over half the guaranteed speed sat 3 feet away from the router is not acceptable, my argument is not so much about the speed i am getting its that many are saying it is the router that is limiting it, time will of course tell when i get the HG635.

Based on connection speed and point is if thats below 55 Mbps you can opt to drop to a 55/10 product and pay a little less each month and get the setup fee refunded, or go elsewhere.

Alas what will encourage more onto a faster service is what Vodafone have done i.e. up to 76 Mbps that is cheaper now than many providers up to 38 Mbps

Here are the head to head results -

Both router stats for line quality were nearly identical at 39997 down and 9995 up and both test results over Ethernet were also very close.

HG633 - https://eigde79682.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage...

HG635 - https://eigde79682.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage...

A 6Mbps increase over the HG633 is not to be sniffed at and as i don't have any devices that will work on 802.11ac and don't intend to upgrade any time soon it'll do for me, i also prefer the design and smaller size.
