Sky confirms 76Mbps is available to all
Sky has confirmed that its up to 76Mbps fibre optic broadband service is now available to all customers.
The satellite broadcaster launched the product in April, but it was initially available only to new subscribers who did not already have Sky Fibre or Sky Broadband.
However, the company has now revealed that everyone can sign up for its fastest connection. "All our broadband products are open to all customers covered by Sky's network," a Sky spokeswoman told ZDNet UK.
It is thought that Sky had not completed development work to transfer its existing customers from the old to the new system by the time it began selling the super-fast broadband service.
The up to 76Mbps proposition hit the market at the same time as Sky's up to 38Mbps product, with both of these packages supported by BT's fibre-to-the-cabinet infrastructure.
More than ten million homes and businesses across the UK are currently served by BT's fibre broadband networks.
The telecoms giant is aiming to increase this coverage to two-thirds of properties by the end of 2014 under its £2.5 billion national rollout.
