      Max for Free?

      After half a year of dodgy speeds with sky broadband despite only living 2 streets from my exchange, this morning I logged on to find something very strange. I was downloading a Linux cd image and noticed the download rate was excellent - I have checked my sync rate in the netgear admin page and I am syncing up at over 16meg despite only ever being on Mid! When I do a speed test I get a stable speed of 13.5meg. How very odd - II now get free broadband from my employer but 5 for ADSL2 is too good to miss!

      someones fixed your line without checking your package. That'll probably be picked up on at some point, and you line will drop to 8

      I've had 8mb Mid for free since I joined in Nov 2006, I've rang Sky about 7 times about it and all they say is "yeah we will look into it!" I've given up now! They have never charged me a penny, I'm sure they will come knocking on my door for some money one day.
