      Re: Oh Come on!?

      After reading Sky's little Readme on their boradband website it says, and i quote,
      "As Sky Connect customers are not on the Sky network we are unable to extend this promise to them, and in order to provide a sustainable quality broadband service to our Connect customers, we may slow down the speed that all Sky Broadband Connect customers can get on certain applications which may have a negative effect on other customers. There are no restrictions in place for applications such as browsing, email, streaming, instant messaging and VOIP during peak times, and we do not put restrictions on our Connect network outside of peak times."

      As you can see, i noted out the point I'm trying to make in bold, i cannot connect to Xfire, Ventrilo, Steam Friends, all of which are said here, not restricted.
      I can't watch youtube videos which i assume come under Streaming.

      O2 if it is LLU although they seem to be buying more capacity for their rebaged BT product but I have no idea where they are at with that.

      I looked at O2, but i noticed how their packages seem to be similar to Sky, there were 4 and "access" being what seems to be the O2 version of Connect for people outside their area's

      Yeah but O2 admitted they had a problem with access and went and bought more capacity.
