      Would be good to charge say after a letter if on connect and use as IANTE say`s 116gbs
      40gb 17 then say another 34 for next 40gb then double 68 always rounding of to the nearest 40gb which would mean 116gb would be 119.00 I think that would make them think.
      Just an Idea

      The thing is if you are paying 17 and having problems unless Sky can do something about it then you have no choice

      Re: Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      but you post the same quotes about 4 times a day, the same link to anyone who's on Connect (regardless if they're actually bothered about the slow down) and you sound like a broken record (which i'm sure some would say the same of me!!)...

      might be worth letting this thread die the death it deserves...people can use the search function if they're new and on Connect...
