Sky now offering FTTP but only 145Mbps?

So Sky have started selling their "Ultrafast" broadband but it's only capable of 145Mbps. Why is this? Why aren't they offering speeds more in line with Virgin? Why no 500Mbps or even 1Gbps? Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought FTTP meant they could do speeds such as that?

I can't speak with confidence to the reason why they haven't yet launched faster packages, although the need to ensure adequate capacity and negotiations to use rival networks (e.g. Cityfibre, Virgin Media), may be playing a role. But I was told just before the 145Mbps FTTP launch that faster plans would follow later, so we'll see.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the reply.
Let's hope they manage to offer higher speeds by the end of this year, since that's when Virgin are saying they'll complete their Gigabit rollout. Wouldn't want Sky, and other ISPs, to get left behind so drastically.

Other ISPs on Openreach's FTTP do offer faster speeds, so Sky isn't the only choice on that front.
