      While it's free I will stay but to retain my custom they will need to improve.The offer of free will be limited as they will creep in a payment for this on the same basis as they did with Sky TV.
      Take advantage while we can and suffer the failures with as little grumbles as possible,if they fix it then it's a bonus.
      IT IS FREE UNTILL THEY SLICKEN UP THE NUMBERS ON LINE then watch your mail box or letter box, the charges will come.

      Freeloader for now

      You have "MAX" package under your name obviously a typo or you work for SKY hence the free part.

      As for you scepticism about the free package it WILL always be free so long as you have a SKY subscription now I am not sure if you are always the life and soul of the party but enjoy your free broadband and more importantly enjoy your free skyuser forum

      I also noticed on your other post that you were going along the same line, if I were recieving something free I would be more than pleased as opposed to being grumpy about it, have a beer big guy and chill out.

      If Sky put forward charges for this site at any time in the future, which they will.If you remember how they crept in the charges for Sky TV it will come for this FREE BROADBAND service,then they will have to improve for me to stay.

      PS. Most people have a backup or primary email from HERE

      Not really correct, you pay the same for Sky TV whether you take the Broadband option or not

      If you were already a SKY subscriber and then opted for BB then it is free and damn good at that.

      Broadband prices have been coming down for a lonth time So why on earth would they suddenly start going up? and as for Sky prices always going up haven't they just dropped the 10 Sky+ subscription.
      My Aunt recently changed from NTL/Virgin to Sky for phone, tele and broadband she has the same TV package the same 2mb broadband and the same anytime phone package for 40 a month less! Thats 480 a year saving!
