      The answer would have to be Yes guys maybe i am just lucky but i have had none of the problems at all mentioned above.

      Been a great service for almost 3 months now so i cant complain.

      I have a couple of friends at work who also migrated around the same time as me and they are very happy to.

      However i would NEVER recommend BT but SKY yes.
      hAS ANYONE SEEN MY cAPSLOCK KEY?

      I would also have to say YES. I was acativated on the day promised and have good speeds and steady connection for 10 days now. If all continues like this I am well chuffed as I am saving 180 a year over orange. Di.

      There are many variables which might determine the best ISP for you. For example:
      Location. How near you are to the exchange. Your computer set up. What you use the Internet for.

      I only use Sky Broadband Max to access the Internet. Nothing else.
      My service is fast and reliable. I have had one disconnection when there was a fault at my exchange. Sky had a technical guy (Tier3) called me within a few hours, although I was warned it might be 5 days before they called. I said if that is the case they should change there name to Tear3.

      Justin was expert and helpful and even made a follow up call to check if everything was okay. He tweaked my line because of noise or some such thing, that is beyond me. The service went back to normal next day.

      Would I recommend Sky? No. There are too many variables.

      But for me Sky Broadband is Fast, and Reliable at any price. That it costs 10 is a bargain.

      Maybe I had better service because I am a long standing subscriber to Sky TV. Who knows. Anyway, they have me hooked and Freeview is now just a distant memory.

      definitely not...

      I wouldn't recommend Sky to my worst enemy.

      If you are currently working reasonably well on Sky, don't think you are out of the woods yet.
      Sky ordered a line cease on me with BT due to : {and I quote} "we're not sure, proabably an administrative error".
      It's taken nearly 2 weeks for me to get it through to them that I do NOT have a service, and now they've realised their error, it will take another 10 days to get the line reactivated with BT. Nearly a month with nothing due to an accidental cancellation.
      If you are currently working quite nicely, this could happen to you at any time, make the most of what you have while you have it....!

      I've recommended to all my family and friends to go with anyone but Sky, it's not worth the hassle just to save a couple of quid.

      I nearly signed up to the connect package but Skyuser saved me from making a huge mistake.

      Thanks Skyuser
