      Glad you are now sorted, hopefully your new computer with vista will give you the same download speed as you get now.

      yes, when i bought new built pc, the fella said sky was the best bb to use with vista.

      Has anybody tried sky bb on windows 7 yet, any differences in speed, or the same speed with vista/xp.
