      I am on the 40 gig limit. I dont think unlimited exists they will just pull the plug if you over do the downloads. If sky want me to keep to to 40 gig they should provide a means for me tell how it's going (BT do).

      i would agree with that - give them time they will probably set something up on their website. in the meantime don't worry - if you're not downloading GB files, you are very unlikely to exceed 40GB anyway.

      having said that the ones on the free 2GB connections could have problems.

      I agree dingdong and what I am even more surprised at the fact that there portal is a mess and never smmes to work, there would appear from the tabs there haven't considered this option.

      I could be wrong as I have not been able to access the portal yet so it may be there.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      independant software would not give you a leg to stand on if sky said you had reached or exceeded your limit - they will use their own metering to decide.

      i doubt they will penalize anyone until they their website is able to show you your download usage anyway, as you could always say "well i didn't know what i'd used".

      Dont worry about going over your limit at this point in time, even if you do go over it..it wont realy be a case for abuse unless you do it for a few months on the trot.

      and its the least of there worrys at the moment m8
