      Hi you are right about Sky`s short long fibre string and of cause copper. The reason I put string in is because that is what you used to get throttled with, How can they call it connect? I leave you all to ponder on that thought

      If it is improving across the whole of the connect package that is great but we have to wait and see heres hopping

      I must say the official statement from Sky on the issue was very illuminating, they really keep you in the picture don't they.

      So THAT's the problem?!! I was getting consistant speeds of 3.1 to 3.5 megs and couldn't work out why, every so often, it would drop to 1.5 megs!! (Didn't think to notice what time of day it was!)

      Normal speeds: 3 Megs
      Throttled speed: 1.5 Megs
      Usage: 15 Gigs per month

      I'm getting really cheesed off with Sky. They're not the cheapest, their customer service is rubbish and now they think they can ration their bandwidth!!

      I'm seriously looking to go over to TalkTalk.

      point me in the direction of another package for 17 that gives you 40GB usage...17 is very reasonable if you ask me...

      fair play, but would you really touch TT with a barge pole???...

      reading the legal, you HAVE to be on TT line rental to get BB and be on myTalkTalk...if not, it's an extra 15 a month...

      You HAVE to be on Sky TV to get Connect
      If it came to a choice between Connect and TalkTalk it would be TT every time. My next door neighbour uses them and although his speed is lower than mine, he has not once lost his connection or slowed down. 3 of their family play WoW almost constantly.

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

      I've not lost connection either - ever...

      end of the day, it's all relevent - there's always a catch!! yes, Connect has issues but they've barely affected me so I'm not fussed...IF i was a gamer then yes I'd probably be a bit miffed but as my connection what I need it to do I'm not gonna rock the boat...

      The fact they include your upload data in that 40GB makes it unreasonable, that just defines cheap. When i found out they did that i was quite shocked as i didnt think any companies now did that, there are very few at least who do it
