      I finally lost it tonight. with the result below.
      I've never broken the agreement I signed not the lies sky have forced upon the people that pay their wages. 757K when at 3.55pm I was on 5.6mb,

      I've asked for my mac codes, yet again sky dont seem to realise that the more custoemrs who leave, the less revenue they'll have. frankly a five year old could work this one out.

      Murdoch you're an ass
      and if they think i'm paying a disconnection charge....... take me to court.

      Hi if Murdoch was still in charge but he is not anymore as Gazz380 say`s in his last post referring to heavy user`s. Sky are pushing the connect package I think the reason is so many are leaving
      out of 1000 users maybe 10 gets the kick, and for those 10, 20 more join.

      Hi the reason I am looking back to see how far the issue goes because the change in Shy`s Terms and Conditions seem to sneak in near the end of 2008 that way it give connect customers a chance meaning it has not just happened

      The stark answer is this: If you require a proper service from an ISP, (non LLU) give Sky Connect the elbow NOW! repeat, NOW!

      As stated many times before go for ISP's such as NewNet or IDNet who provide a service that can be enjoyed. However, be prepared to pay a little extra for this service. You get what you pay for.
      I Totally agree with you, i have already jumped ship and for anyone whos thinking about it i myself have had good service from ADSL24 (18 - 30gig Peak, Unlimited Off Peak). i would push everyone away from skys connect package as i dont think its Value for 17, and i cant see sky fixing it before the end of the 21CN rollout.

      Coreservers, if you still happen to be in your 12 months ill point you to this thread (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users It was started for people in your perdiciment, and i hope you find a decent ISP

      Newnet, Zen, ADSL24, Aquiss or IDnet are all respectable replacments in a BT only area.

      You know full well that A. Sky are Rubbish and B. Anything they want done relys on BT. we also know that BT are just as bad as sky.. and believe me BT Business is so bad its borderline funny! although can be a pain in my job!

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

      you say a lot of people - but from what I can gather it's less than 50 going by this forum...although I'm sure a lot have (and I don't blame them). I just think you think people are actually that bothered...

      the main people we get kicking off are the gamers, understandably so, but the normal users just accept the traffic shaping and go about their business...even my line on fastpath does nothing in the evenings, but I've never had it as bad as some of the extreme cases posted here in the last few months...

      would be nice if it is fixed, but as I have no need for a constantly fast connection it doesn't bother me...browsing/streaming has always worked as it should...I guess i'm just lucky...
