am I to take from this nobody has been connected yet?

I don't think so - it was only revealed a month ago and the website invites interested subscribers to register...:-)

i registerd last month and received an email saying they would contact me early august

still waiting though...........

I've been contacted via email, twice, one with a typo and a second apologising for the typo.

Basically they give details that September will be the start date of any communications from them but it'll be around a year before I can get broadband on their actual network, ie Free!

Before that, it's Sky Connect at £17.50 a month or something.

I also registered and still waiting for an email, but if it's going to be another year I'll just go on Connect as it's still cheaper than what I'm paying now and has more bandwidth.

i was also told that i would be contacted early august.i was under the impression that I would be connected sooner rather than later.perhaps not then!

I'll wait to see what people think of the service first I think, does sound good, but maybe too good to be true

Rememeber initially it will only be available in some parts of the country. If you are in one of those locations then you should have access fairly quickly, if not then it depends upon when Sky roll out the service to your area. As an existing Sky customer I'll wait until it comes to my area and then have it for 'free' - I'll save £20+ each month by not buying it elsewhere. That's a good enough reason for me.

Been contacted & told them i'm not interested.
Then the sales pitch came on how good the service is, sadly the sky worker had not read the bit about Sky taking up to 6 months before putting it in to the local BT exchanges.

I do wonder if it will have the same trouble as Talk-talk has had?
