I've only had Sky 4 days and every day I have had a loss of Internet at about 7:30 about 30minutes before the street lights come on.
I can usually reboot the router in the morning to up the sync speed slightly then 7:30ish down it goes. I'm still waiting for my tier 3 call back that I was promissed I would get today (I'll not hold my breath).

Well I shall look out for any obvious electrical activity when it dies again tonight. However, as I mentined before, the ADSL signal seems fine: it's the PPP connection that goes, so I suspect that it's a problem at Sky.

I'm in exactly the same boat - max speed is less that 8MB even though I was told at the time of sale the line would take 13MB and I'm paying for the 8MB to 16MB service. I'll probably drop to the 2MB to 8MB service if they can't nail this one and save myself a fiver a month to spend on, let's see, a journey on the London Underground?

It is weird that we all have exactly the same problem. PPP connection lost but router stays sync'd very weird... I would say it's a problem with sky config, but surely more people would be complaining?
IS THERE ANYONE ELSE READING THIS FORUM like MOSSYWELL?
If so sign up and let us know, I guess it would be helpful if we can say to sky that there are others having the problem?
Who knows maybe we are all set up on a particular gateway that they have setup to reboot or do something funny around then?
Hopefully now Annie has go through to the "Tier 3" people we can get some answers?

Anyone getting the customer support agent are busy call back message on the 0870 number call the 0800 number.
I called and they said there was a 48hr callback logged on my account though I've already been waiting since Saturday
I said I want a resolution one way or the other today!
Even if I have the freebie 2Mb service and stick the Xbox360 on it i'll be happy.
The problem is the waiting for calls and the unknowing that winds me up
I THINK I'VE GOT MORE CHANCE OF GETTING A CALL FROM THE POPE THAN THE TIER 3 DEPT. Sorry about the caps I noticed after typing and can't be bothered to re-type

I wonder if it's anything to do with the fact that although LLU has taken place, IPStream is still enabled (the latter gets switched off a few days after LLU unbundling). Just some idle musings... My IPStream is due to be killed some time today, so I'll soon know for sure.

I don't know but I would imaging moving your line from BT to LLU basically means they unplug you form one port in the exchange and connect you to another one?
