      Thanks for the reply,tener. Can you explain "mesh"? Is it possible to use my sky equipment with another provider?

      You may get poorer wi-fi coverage with Plusnet as currently your Sky Q boxes act as wireless access points but will not do so if you change to a different internet service provider.
