      Anyone subscribed to SKY broadband via CONNECT?

      Hi,
      I am currently subscribing to SKY MAX but am due to move in the next month or two to an area where the exchange has not been LLU'ed. Consequently the only broadband connection I can get via SKY will be CONNECT at 17.
      If anyone reading this has SKY broadband CONNECT can you tell me if you would recommend it, is it worth the 17, did you pay 17? or were you able to negotiate better terms? Any info you can give would be much appreciated.

      Thanks.

      IF your exchange is to be LLU'd in the near future they'll offer you Connect at 5 a month and move you to Mid as and when the exchange is unbundled. If there's no immediate plans then you're stuck on 17 i'm afraid...

      then you're stuck on 17 i'm afraid...
      Which is not much better than you would get with Plusnet or some other provider. It's a good buy at 5 though

      Hi there,

      I'm on connect for the 17 a month wish it was five,service is good for the 8mb at the moment getting 6.5mb dl speed only 750m from exchange, very stable connection can't wait for the LLU if it ever comes as when i signed up last October was told exchange would be LLU in June/July 07, don't think you get better deal than 17 .

      My mum had good deal with AOL mind been with them years pays 17 for 8mb line and free evening and weekend calls thrown in with that price.

      Re: Anyone subscribed to SKY broadband via CONNECT?

      Thank you for your replies to my post. I shall see if I can get SKY CONNECT for a fiver , would rather stick with SKY than have to look elsewhere for a new provider. Better the devil you know and all that!

      Thanks again.
