      Sky have not done anything except throttle the connection, this effects everything that needs a reasonable bit of bandwidth. You would not have this problem on an LLU connection.

      I have seen few that would recommend Connect, LLU is completely different.

      You would either have to show that the service is not being provided to you as per your contract with Sky or pay up the cancellation fee for the BB.

      Sky BB is only available as part of the Sky TV package, no Sky TV, no Sky BB. If you cancle the TV the BB with go.

      The problem is that you may have some downtime, the only suggestion I can make is to get you MAC code from them first, use it and then cancle the TV package. They may come after you for the BB contract but I doubt they would want to test this in court.

      Failing that, keep the TV get the MAC and tell them you will cancel eveything if they insist on trying to make you pay out the BB contract.

      Try, Plusent gamers package, Idnet, Zen, ADSL24.

      According to Reports on The PS3 forums, Sky have finally realised it is them and are currently working to rectify the problem

      So much for all this, "It is Sony not us! We haven't done anything!"

      So it boils down to the fact that PSN use P2P and Sky throttle it

      That is if the post was correct.

      Sky Broadband sorry for PSN problems News // PS3 /// Eurogamer - Games Reviews, News and More

      Sky Broadband is fixing an error that has been blocking UK customers from accessing and using the PlayStation Network between 5pm and midnight.

      The system mistakenly classified PSN as a traffic-heavy application, and therefore sought to prevent or block connections to it during peak hours. Fixing this is a matter of priority, Sky says.

      "Our network management system mistakenly classified PlayStation 3 traffic in a way which meant some customers using their consoles to access the internet may have had their speeds reduced, in line with our network management policy for Sky Broadband Connect," Sky told Eurogamer in a statement.

      "This was a mistake and resulted from a systems error, for which we apologise. Our team is working on fixing this as a matter of urgency. All other Sky Broadband users are unaffected, as there are no traffic management policies in place for our on-network broadband services."

      Traffic management, Sky went on to say, only applies to Sky Broadband Connect users using peer-to-peer applications; torrents, in other words.

      "There are no restrictions in place for applications such as web browsing, email, video and audio streaming, instant messaging and VOIP during peak times. And we do not put restrictions on our network outside of peak times (5pm to midnight)," adds the statement.
