Yes Sky has it's own network topolgy , and routes it's transit data over its own core network,So no BTWolesale backhaul /routing to worry about , that's true,
As for ISP's that opt for the GEA speed DLM profile there are 2 i know of who's support staff have provided that info in their answer when questioned by customers on this and other forums, At first due to Zen having it's own network /POP 's in some exchanges , there was origianaly some confusion as to which profile they chose for their FTTC products because of the way the BT ordering systems work,
which resulted in a bit of a mix up at first due to this below
BTW "Standard" = Openreach "Speed"
BTW "Stable" = Openreach "Standard"
BTW "Superstable" = Openreach "Stable"
confirmation that zen use the speed profile
more if needed
for the doubters, So for orders that use BTW backhaul they choose the BTW standard profile which maps to the GEA speed profile , and for some reason i can't quite figure out where they can utilize their own network transit via one of their POP's they place a GEA order using the GEA Standard profile by default, but they from what their support have said are willing to change the dlm profile at anytime, they i would imagine would do it from the get go if they where asked when at the time of order
it would'nt come as a suprise if other's order using the speed option too
