      Re: Bad Ping On Sky!

      no my line got sorted and i questioned them. i spoke to there manager to make sure i get the full whack or near. as ive had 2 isp AOL and SKY and i perfer AOL so far. sky are useless. i donr my research and BE allways came in top2 with BT and i hardly seen any bad feedback. unlike on here there's LOADS skys good for surfing the net but not good gaming. i get around 145ping every day. i gave my line stats and both BE and there forums say ill get around 17-21meg and i could get more if i sort the internal wiring. so dont get me wrong sky are good for value but not for gaming. and im in a very competitve clan on ps3 and we enter tourneys for money. and sky let me down. its been an ok 11months with sky but BE win
