Hmmm. I thought the Sky was colder in winter?

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 53.5/15.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Re: why change to fibre?

That is an interesting question. I currently have Be* at a relatively stable 19mb/down 2mb/up and that allows me to do more or less everything at the speed I require. I want FTTC because, well, I'm a geeky person and if I can have 80mb/20mb then why not smile I doubt it'll change my usage at all.

For the future, things like iPlayer and Sky Anytime+ the quality will be higher with the appropriate bandwidth/speed needed increased accordingly.

The biggest advantage is just those who live relatively far away from the exchange but close to a cabinet and will see their speed jump significantly.

A mate of mine is in the same sort of situation, at the moment via cable and wireless LLU ADSL, he can get 16Mb/s and it is stable and the price is fine, but he is wondering if it is worth going to fibre when he is able to get it. He is a games player.

He may just wait until he moves out and have fibre at the new place where ever he moves to, that will not be until the middle of next year
