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

      I'm on Max mate, so I have no problems personally. I just feel agrieved for the people who are putting up with dial up speeds when they're paying out for a broadband service!! If it's acknowledged internally at Sky that they haven't bought enough bandwith, then I hope it's only a matter of time before the emails start flying into Watchdog and they get exposed for pulling a fast one on their customers!!

      it's known internally, and no matter how many emails go to watchdog - nothing will actually happen...

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

      but it's what's classed as 'illegally'

      if he's downloading the internet then they have every right to limit him...saw someone last night who had a slow connection, yet had done 101GB in 37 days...

      will Sky kick him off - of course not...and this is what needs to stop...
