      Re: how often does your connection drop

      well according to wheelie's links the best i can get on LLU with 47db is 4-8mbps - id be happy with 8 so as i before could get 8MB with bulldog on LLU i would assume i could with sky aswell. although exchange is abit longer so maybe virgin is the only way to get decent constant speeds

      but id rather spend that 447 a year on my motorhome
