      Anyway, after much head bashing trying to get any sense out of sky it's looking like I might bite the bullet and switch, couple of Q's...

      My contract only started in April (I did have connect at my previous address and had no problems), is it going to cost me anything to get out of?

      I also have line rental with Sky, is this going to cause problems?

      And sorry, bit of a technophobe, but what are mac keys? Are they what you need to switch provider?

      Thanks in advance
      hi i play on b365 poker also on the i poker network. ive got accounts with will hill, victor chandler, paddy power all on i poker. none of these connect to server after 5pmis although perfect any other time. ladbrokes poker on different network is perfect at all times.my sky connect started not connecting 3 weeks ago just after id spent 120 and qualified for 2 100k tourneys. i couldnt play in any of them due to connection problems but couldnt even get a refund as b365 say i poker is running fine. i spent 7 hours on phone with b365 and sky asking why its just the i poker network but cant get any answers. im gutted!!!i could be rich!!

      Re: (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users

      I'm not sure how many times I need to tell you but it is because Sky are traffic shaping P2P during peak hours, this started a few weeks ago, Bet365 uses a form of P2P to run.

      The only answer is to move ISP's.

      Try:- P;usnet, Zen, IdNet, ADSL24.

      The Plusnet gamers package would be best if you wanted to be sure.

      Re: (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users

      Hello there. I have been having a good look through the site and was hoping somone could help.

      I have recently signed up to Sky Broadband from Talk Talk and I am really very unhappy with my connection. I want to get down to the problem, but would like an idiot's guide to everything I should check and do to figure out what the problem is (or if in fact its just Sky!!). I am guessing there is a checklist on this website somewhere (for idiot's like me), but I havent been able to find it yet, so apologies for any duplication. I would be grateful if someone could just point me in the right direction.

      To give a bit of background on my situation I was with Talk Talk for around 2 years using my own Netgear wireless router. I NEVER experienced any problems, but now since joining Sky, I am very unhappy with both my router and my connection.

      Any advice would be most appreciated.

      Many thanks
