      New Sky user over from Virgin cable

      Hello

      As stated in the title, I have just signed up to Sky broadband (max). I have recieved my router and awaiting activation. Can you tell me is it worth using the sky CD that came with the package or is it full of bloat as was the case with NTL (virgin). I also wonderd what speeds I can expect, I live about 300 meters from the exchange.

      Regards..

      Good luck mate, I went from Cable NTL to Sky Max and I've never looked forward since.
