      Sky also have what can be called a gaming mode which involves reducing the Max Delay. This is done on request. They do not use FastPath officially, only Interleave.

      Sky will not turn off interleaving, they will however as already mentioned reduce the max delays. This wii be fine for gaming and give a ping of around 30.

      I dont know why you would move from the best broadband provider in the UK to possibly the worst, but hey, good luck.

      As long as the OP gets Sky LLU and not the Sky Connect they will be on one of the best ISP's and the only one with a true unlimited download allowance.
