As Sky have LLU at that exchange, you should get 16Mb/s down and 1Mb/s up no problem.

Which is a bit less than 300Mb/s down and 20 Mb/s up you can get with BT smile

Your choice of course but remember that it is still BT that connects your home to the Sky DSLAM.

Many readers of this forum would give their eye teeth for an FTTP connection and that due to the individual cabling required this often takes more than three weeks to be installed.

You only need it if you download a lot which i never do. And you don't really notice the browsing any faster or gaming.

Fair comment although I'm surprised that you have already experienced FTTP. I was under the impression that latency and jitter on both FTTC and FTTP were better than that normally experienced on ADSL2+

TBH, openreach FTTP installation process is so full of holes, if there is any sort of difficulty or issue it's likely to take a considerable length of time to resolve.
If you don't need the bandwidth and can get a good enough connection, your probably 'safer' with a bog standard ADSL service.

You've never had an FTTP installation with Sky. They don't do it. For exactly the reasons Ribble just gave. It's difficult for the ISP.

But you're not listening.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 52.8 (interleaved)/15.0Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM
