      honestly don't mean any offence...
      Unfortunately it didn't come across that way but I appreciate the explanation.

      If it happens that Sky want to boot me then it happens ... such is life!

      Something that isn't pointed out too often is that Sky also own another ISP called UKOnline. It's more expensive than Sky Broadband, but doesn't have the restrictions.

      You get the benefit of using Sky's LLU network which, apart from the occasional routing glitch, is generally pretty good and definitely better than using a BT broadband service, either their own, or one of their many resellers. You get static IP options, you can use it for commercial or domestic use and you can use your own router. Oh, and you don't have to be Sky TV subscriber.

      Interesting ... I used to be with UK Online in the days before broadband, very helpful but I probably wouldn't go back now.

      My mum is still with them (and still on dialup)

      The problem I am having is that I want to update my dynamic address at OpenDNS which, as this crippled Sagem says:

      To set up for DDNS:

      1. If you have registered with a DDNS service provider, select the Use A Dynamic DNS Service check box.
      2. Select the name of your dynamic DNS Service Provider.
      but in reality, I cannot connect to "A" (choice of) DDNS Service provider as it will only connect to DynDNS.org (com).

      I assume that's another Sky acquisition in the works...

      Therefore I suppose I am now going to have to run a piece of client software, other than the router, in order to update OpenDNS.

      Damn them and their insistence on choice of router. Its just not good enough.

      Do the EFF have a branch in Brussels I wonder?

      RTB.
