      Question How do I get the connection speed before I sign up?

      Hi, I'm just about to take the plunge and get the Sky connect package ahead of the Sky Broandband Mid package which becomes available to me in the summer.

      At the minute I'm with PlusNet and get a connection speed of 5-6 Mbs. Is it fair to say that I'll get this speed with Sky if I switch?

      If not, why not and how might I find out what speed I'll get before I sign up?

      Thanks.
      Colin

      You will get much the same or even a bit better with Sky. Make sure you give PN the 30 days notice, or you will be charged until you do. Put it on the ticket when you request your MAC. If you are going on Connect, expect 2-4 days down time waiting on your router arriving.

      PS. Ask Plusnet to set up a PAYG dial-up account for you when you leave. You will then be able to access your emails, from the Sky account.
