Author Topic: Sky Broadband UK Seek Full Fibre ISP Alliance with Openreach Rivals  (Read 327 times)

The CEO of Sky UK (Sky Broadband), Stephen van Rooyen, has written a letter to the heads of several alternative “full fibre” (FTTP) network ISPs, seemingly in the hope of opening talks that could result in new wholesale or other agreement to help “increase investment” and “bring ultrafast broadband to more homes.”

What do people think of this?

From my view I'm not sure how successful they are going to be. Why should FTTP network providers be signing any general agreement with Sky. What would be the benefit? Sky are going to probably use their network anyway. For such a big company Sky are showing how greedy it is by not investing in full fibre themselves, or at the very least picking a network provider already and investing in them.
