      Sky will not normally allow you to downgrade during the minimum period. After this is up, there is no problem or charge.

      ah, ok - is the minimum period 12 months? If so, I'm only 5 months in.

      So if a customer wants to upgrade, Sky won't let them?

      I don't think anyone should sign up for Max from the begining unless they are very sure they need the unlimited download or faster upload. Upgrading is easy, downgrading, not so.

      To be honest, I signed up to Max in October 2008 to avoid the 30 connection fee that was being charged for Mid.

      After the birth of our first child, my wife has now decided that she won't be returning to work, so I needed to look at my outgoings and see where I could make savings, and broadband was one of them.

      It's not a problem, it's only 5 more a month, but I'll be downgrading in October 2009.

      This is probably one of the reasons they will not allow you to downgrade. If they did, everyone would sign up for Max to avoid the connection fee, then immediately downgrade. It would not be financially viable for Sky to allow that.

      yes you can do that now,(from 1st march) it is 20 each time to downgrade.
      e.g from max down to mid=20, max down to base=20 ect...
      give the bb canceltions a ring, I cant recall what department deal with it, but they willl know.
