Bt get the first orders when the FTTC is live, more of a wait if your with other providers.No chance! That's you just thinking they probably can. OfCom would go sky-high if that could be shown to happen as a BT Wholesale or Openreach policy.
Moving my line from sky on the 15th december to BT this should speed up the transfer when infinity is live.Infinity is only available from BT, so that's fairly obvious. FTTC is available from all other major suppliers at exactly the same time as Infinity is available, barring Sky and TalkTalk who occasionally lag by a few days. Or very occasionally a long time. It's the luck of the draw where you can order from first, but for all the BTW based ones it's usually the same time. There have been cases reported here where BT were well behind the others.
On the other hand, IIRC it is one of the posters in this thread that recently ordered Infinity before any indicator showed the cabinet as live.
I don't think that is a major way to decide when looking at a price difference of £72 a year , allied to broadband support you can actually get sense out of as opposed to BT's apparently often incomprehensible and unhelpful Indian call centres.
I do have my line rental with BT, but not my broadband. I agree moving that early is a good idea, if you don't want Sky FTTC.
I've just noticed this is all academic at the moment. Your exchange isn't scheduled till March 2013, and that's a highly unreliable date anyway. Will Sky let you stay on SMPF, (partial LLU), that long or probably longer? Or is it a Sky line with something like O2/Be broadband where I agree there is no problem.

Was told by this lady at TALKTALK head office BT have every right to not offer service to non bt customers for x number of weeks, and if cab reaches capacity so be it.????
