      Thinking about moving to SKY - questions...

      Hi,

      My local exchange has been upgraded to LLU and I am interested in the 16mb broadband package from SKY.

      At present I have a business line as the wife works from home.

      Does anyone know what the connection ratio of the SKY broadband?

      At present I run 2 xbox360 through my connection via static IP's. Static IP's is the only way I can port forward both connections other than buy a special router.

      Do SKY provide static IP's on request or is just a dynamic IP on offer?

      Thanks

      J

      Not sure on contention - bound to be the usual 50:1 though. It is against the T&C's of Sky broadband to use it to run a business - the main issue there I guess, is that if you had a connection problem you would not be able to phone them up and demand compensation for lost business.

      If you need bulletproof broadband you are better off with the likes of Zen. Sky is brilliant - and touch wood I have never had any issues with lost connections or email problems - but they are most definitely not a business-grade service.

      Sky do not provide static IP addresses.

      Thanks for your quick reply.

      Are there any plans for SKY to be intorducing a business grade with static IP's in the future?

      Closest you'd most likely get would be UKOnline at the moment.

      It's on the Easynet network, but of course is expensive and not Sky - technically...
