Sky and TalkTalk promote 1000Mb fibre

Sky Broadband and TalkTalk have launched the new UFO website, showcasing the upcoming Ultra Fibre Optic connection due to be switched on in York this year. With over 1,200 premises already covered in the area and 20,000 soon to be connected, the first customers are expected to go live around autumn this year.

The two networks joined forces with Cityfibre last year to install a 1000Mb fibre work across the city. The network will be completely fibre to the home, which means no copper wire is used between the green cabinet out on the street and the house. The result is a much faster and more reliable service.

Speaking about the UFO project, Dido Harding, CEO of TalkTalk Group, said:

TalkTalk has a long history and proven track record of disrupting new markets, and this is the next step in that journey. We are excited to be working in partnership with Sky and CityFibre to build this new network that will offer significantly higher speeds at much better value than is currently available. This marks TalkTalk taking its first steps into investing in building infrastructure as part of our mission to make British homes and businesses better off.

The new website allows customers to check their home will be covered by UFO and pre-register for inclusion in the connection. Unfortunately no details of prices or packages are currently available.
