      Should I change ISP?

      I was thinking about moving to O2 when my contract expires but my question is seeing as I'll still be using a BT line, would it still be throttled in the evenings?

      I primarily use my connection for gaming you see


      Thanks in advance

      Hi I see at your exchange there is no LLU how long have you been with Sky Broadband the reason is have a look at (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users it will give you information There is Quite a few O2 Users on Skyuser also O2 is Skyuser`s sister site O2User - Unofficial help and support for O2 you might be able to get some more information on there

      Although you would still be on a BT re-badged package, other ISPs seem to manage it much better than Sky. Few are worse
