My mate just told me about it last night. Those are some FANTASTIC prices!! I hope Sky do this properly and dont have lots of problems and bad publicity, because if their broadband is good at those prices, might start a price war!!
News in the City last night was whether Sky would be able to get all their equipment needed into the local telephone exchanges to make this work and that would they be able to offer a service with few problems.
Also possibilies of having to wait a few months to get on to the service.
8MB is the max you will get, if your in an area with a lot of other customers your speed could go down.
I'm holding fast for a few months to see how thing pan out. It could all go like talk talk, were in some areas customers have to wait 3 months & then their speed is slower. You also have a 1 year contract as well.
I would get Broadband for half of what I'm paying now with Tiscali, got the letter from Sky this morning. Unfortunately it is not available in this area and as has been stated they have to get their gear into BT exchanges.
My mate has signed up for it. He was pretty impressed with them, after dealing with talk talk. He says they guy was pretty honest with them, said it will be 6 months before the area he is in is able to get their broadband. In the mean time they are going to put him on a slower one, but as soon as it's available they will automatically switch him over.
