      Sky Broadband - Speed Question

      Hello,

      I've just recently signed up to SkyHD. The engineer is coming today to fit it (well I hope they are, not received the telephone call yet).

      I was looking to see if itís worthwhile combining my SkyTV with their broadband package. However, on their website it states my max speed as 5.5Mb - 6.0MB.

      Is this the most they will ever offer? Reasons I ask is Iím currently with O2 and receive speeds of 11mb. Both companies are LLU enabled at my exchange so Iím curious as to why O2 can offer much faster speeds?

      James

      The speed checker on sky opts for a more conservative speed so people are not disappointed when they get faster. What are your current stats?

      You will get pretty near the same with Sky, maybe a bit less but not much. However unless you are also going to take Sky Talk, which gets you a discount on the broadband, it is not worth changing. Many ex-Sky users have switched to O2.
