Sky Fibre to Infinity - Problems?


[link to this post]
 
I currently have Sky Fibre Pro Unlimited and I'm thinking about migrating away to BT Infinity or Plusnet Fibre, here's a couple of questions for those of you who are on infinity, I'd really appreciate if you answered them.

1) Are the slowdowns through the day (there isn't on Sky)
2) Could you please post a trace route to bbc.net.uk?
3) If you posted a trace route, are you in London? (I'm not, I'm in the North West)

I'm also wondering if there will be problems migrating from Sky Fibre to Infinity or Plusnet Fibre.

Here's a trace route to bbc.net.uk for comparison.

Some Plusnet customers are having problems migrating from full LLU which Sky use to the Plusnet fibre product, and should be the same for Infinity, apparently down to an Openreach issue. Not sure, but think the currently work around is to migrate people back to ADSL2+ and once that is working migrate them internally while on the ISP to the fibre product.
