      Sky Connect

      Why does it get so much bad press? I LOVE IT! I was paying 29 for a Max Premium line from Entanet, which slowed to 2mb and less at peak times.

      On Sky Connect i never get any slow downs, constant full speed, torrents are managed but if you use uTorrent and enable encryption you can max them 24/7 also.

      Overall, even Sky Connect is outstanding for the price.

      Little screenshot of the speed now @ 10pm

      I was pretty much problem free when I was one Connect and it was made even better when I started paying only 5 instead of the usual 17. As I was paying BT a penny short of 30 for the last few years I had no issues about going on it. I am now on Mid and my speeds are much better though as I was average around 3MB on Connect although I did get up to 5MB a few times but now am on an almost constand 7MB.

      I know what you mean, after some initial problems which turned out to be traffic shaping, it was faultless for me apart from a couple of short outages. I'm now on max and that has been the same - I think with sky if its good its good and if its bad it is bad - if you know what I mean !
