      Re: Recommend yes/no

      Ooo!... that's a difficult one.

      I've had an excellent stable connection since the day I started. On time with no problems at all. For me it has been a joy, cheap, reliable, fast, always on, never failed. Best thing since sliced bread!

      Would I recommend sky to others.......?

      Ah.........

      You've put me on the spot with that one......!

      Ummm.........

      Pass

      I think this needs a little more thought. Could you ask me again later. Say in a year or two?

      Re: Recommend yes/no

      On Connect so I really have the same as what I had before I moved so my view is:

      Connection speed = the same as before
      Cost = was 15 now 5
      Transfer = Painful, was lied to, lost connection for a week, not impressed.

      All in all if you can put up with bad Customer Service, possible loss of Broadband for a week, but will save 10 a month then do it.

      Totally agree with you there wireless-andy. I've just reconsidered and believe that I would recommend sky to people but, I would make sure they know about this site at the same time.

      I wouldn't recommend Sky to anyone until I've tried it out for myself.

      Agree 100% (except I was without BB for 12 days)

      I would reccomend to people but make them fully aware how painful it can be to get working if you get problems.

      Once it is up and running your ok.
