      If you were on LLU then they would probably ask you to go to a higher package but no sure what they can do if you are on Connect, perhaps they will charge you for the extra you use ??

      2 big guys with axes will pay you a visit and chop off 1 of your fingers every week you exceed the limit ...

      Nah seriously SKY will not charge you any extra but may cap you bandwidth eventually.

      Keep your eye on your SKY email account as you will receive a polite warning if it becomes a monthly regular but nothing to worry about just now

      LLU Local Loop unbundling.

      Its where an ISP has their own equipment in BT's exchange, and your internet service is routed over their network.

      In Sky's case the network and equipment is operated by Easynet, which Sky own.

      Local loop unbundling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      See how the network is holding up here
