      hi everyone,

      new member here. just got off the phone to sky bb and joined up.
      waited about 6 weeks for my band number to come through but finally got the email from sky the other day.

      since then have been checking the internet to see what people thought of sky bb. great site you have here! and im suprised i didnt get put off signing up from some of the threads ive been reading!

      tele will be installed on the 17th, and bb whenever i get my mac code from pipex!

      anyone had problems trying to leave pipex at all? 2 days and still no mac code (they said i should get it within 3 days) otherwise its a phone call to pipex tomorrow!!!

      cheers,
      g

      welcome to skyuser ghosty

      as for the negative comments, people dont realise that sky are trying to get thousands and thousands of people connected and yes there will be some errors but Sky are learning from their mistakes, it just takes time.

      I am so pleased that you made your own mind up. Yep Sky have problems signing up, delivering routers etc, but its early days for them and you just know that they are gonna wipe the floor with everyone else.

      The beauty of this site, you can say good or bad, as long as the bad is genuine constructive criticism. If not we banish it forever! We aint here to protect Sky, we aint here to crucify Sky, we are here to help their users, and make new virtual friends.

      You have made the right choice on ISP and forums

      glad to be a member SatDish/NewsreadeR

      yeah, ive changed isp's enough times to not expect an easy ride (speaking just out of experience) just as long as it works in the end..

      ive learnt that ppl usually come onto the forums to vent their frustrations if things arnt working out (could well be me soon ) and the lucky ones who dont have any problems rarely post to say all went well and what a fab job this company is doing.

      but like u say, on the bright side there is a nice community here where ppl can share their experiences and help each other
