      Changing ISP = No Throttling?

      Hi guys

      I was told by a representative at Sky that the throttling I am experiencing after 5pm every night is BT's fault and not Sky's.

      Does this mean that if I change ISP I will still get this throttling? I am on Sky BB Connect, and the only equipment at my exchange is BT's.

      Cheers

      Jez

      It's not BT it is Sky but have a read of the HUGE thread all about it to get the details.

      Most ISP's will have some traffic shaping etc, Try Zen, Plusnet or IDnet, they seem to have good reviews on here.

      Be prepared to pay double for what you get with Sky though. unless you can live with a lower download figure.
