I couldn't see much of an explanation of what they meant  - will they be accessing the net via the sat dish or still need plugging in?

Plugging in to the data outlet on the wall of your pre data cabled dwelling of course.




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

I think they are going to use the Ethernet port.  So I hope your modem/router is close by.

Why of course? You can get internet via satellite so logically you could get it via a My Sky.

Internet via sat is a two way thing. Sky dish can't transmit anything.

You probably need to specify what 'that' is...

This was signaled almost a year ago (I think with the annual results).

Here is another article which gives a bit more info:

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Is this upgrade done over the air, or do I know need to plug a ethernet cable in?

I believe the upgrade will be OTA - no need to plug anything in.
