      It's just not what they do, they have enough trouble doing what they do do.

      They have strict upload limits to work with and with a budget system it is probably not financially viable to make exceptions. BE and other ISPs charge more and probably don't have the same constraints. Technically I don't doubt that Sky's system could be made to do it.
