Why is BT the only provider that will give me Fiber broadband

Go to solution

Hello all.

We have been using BT fiber broadband for a few years now, with no issues. We have Fiber to our house and loving the good speeds. However, we are thinking of getting a deal with Sky for TV and Broadband. However, Sky does not recognise that we have Fiber broadband in our house and will only offer us non-fibre broadband.

So, my question is, why is BT the only provider that recognises that we have Fiber?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You would need to ask the other providers why they don't offer FTTP. It is available to all ISPs.

I have been trying to find a way to get hold of Sky to ask.

So, can the FFTP only be available to BT?

Sky don’t sell BT’s WBC FTTP at the minute. They were supposed to start selling it in June but have had to push the date back as they haven’t got their Back Haul Equipment ready yet.

There are other Providers that sell FTTP. If you look on the Openreach web site it has a list of the Providers who sell it. Some only sell it certain areas though.
