      however, i agree that it needs to be sorted as i'm also being hit for no reason (well, perhaps last week was justified but not now!!) and we're all trying to find out what's going to be done...

      however, shouting at tier 1 - who have no access to anything - will achieve nothing...
      Have to say that I have never ever got anywhere near 1.4gb download in a day but I am getting hammered EVERY evening after 6pm and do agree mostly with coreservers comments that we are being given short shrift here.

      However, thanks for your input to the forum. Hopefully things will get sorted quickly or SKY BB's name will go down the tubes in double quick time.

      that's what's meant to happen - obviously it's not as none of us would be complaining (well, maybe those canning it!!)...

      it'll get sorted, but might not as quick as we'd like...

      We have invited Sky to give us an official update on the current issues on Connect, however we have had no news fed back so far.

      They're just not geared up to communicate with any outside party, formally or informally. Actually, they're really poor at internal communication too. Too many hoops to jump through to get the message approved. It's a sad indictment of Sky's management style and ethos.

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

      Prepare for an extreme case....

      Broadband package: Sky Connect? Not that sure.
      Normal Speed: 6-6.8Mb
      Current throttled speed: 0.001Mb-0.005Mb (1-5KBps)
      Average usage per day: Extreme downloading, hundreds of gb a month
      What does this throttling affect? Downloads, site loading. But not xboxlive strangely.

      Well I hope it helps to hear an example of someone who hammers their connection. But I see even those of you who don't use theirs much getting some pretty awful throttling.

      Currently looking into alternatives but in my village there aren't many.
