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

      Hi Steve

      Rang Sky to ask for our MAC code which they have provided, they didnt even ask why we were considering leaving, guy sounded like he couldnt be bothered with any hassle.

      Who is exactly is to blame for reducing the speak peak times on Sky connect ? Is it Sky or is it BT ? We presume if its BT then nothing can be done about it. If its Sky would they consider thanging anything before we jump ship to another provider.

      The mrs has been moaning all day about not being able to play World Of Warcraft due to the speed and latency.

      Thanks again for your help and advice Steve

      It's Sky, and it's not going to change anytime soon...

      And surely it's FAR too nice a day to be playing games?...
