Sky unbundles 2,000th UK broadband exchange
Sky has announced the unbundling of the 2,000th exchange in its broadband network, bringing total UK coverage of its Unlimited broadband service to 82 per cent.
The landmark exchange is located in Wraysbury, meaning residents of the Berkshire village will now be able to benefit from cheaper and more flexible internet services than can be delivered via the BT Wholesale network.
Having passed this mark, the internet service provider is aiming to expand its coverage to 90 per cent of British households by 2015.
The Sky Unlimited service is sold on the promise of providing internet browsing and downloading with no monthly usage cap, as well as no slowdown on average speeds during peak hours.
Sky Broadband representative Lyssa McGowan said: "We've invested more than £1 billion in our network over the past six years to enable us to provide our customers with the best possible broadband service and offer value that's second to none."
