      Just took the plunge

      Hi all, ive just signed up to Sky Broadband on monday and was wondering what kind of speed amI likely to get. From the BT checker i get 4.5MB from ADSL max, I live (as the crow flies) 2.28Km from the exchange, is the Sky internet faster than normal ADSL?

      thanks in advance

      It's very much a case of suck it and see, Sky can give very good speeds depending on quality of line and distance from exchange etc. Wouldn't worry about different ADSL's etc, you will probably be connected on the best protocol for your line, It's all well and good trying to drive the line flat out but if you have a poor quality line etc you will suffer with drop outs and problems. Sky should select the best option for your line and distance.
