      Yes they do block rapidshare! With Sky rapidshare often hits you with the message "no more download slots available" (a little too often btw) but as soon as I tap into my neighbours connection (another ISP btw!) those unavailable download slots magically become available again.

      Sky block nothing on their LLU connection. Rapidshare has always had a hit/miss history.

      LLU? What's that got to do with anything? Sky severely throttle and block certain things because they want us to pay for the Max package (Max costs more right?). That's it. Simple.

      You need to educate yourself more on the subject you are talking about. You are wrong.

      Once more, Sky are not blocking rapidshare it is either them, you or a routing issue, not blocking.

      If you are on Connect you will be paying more than you would on Unlimited. Also many of those who have had problems are on Unlimited, so your argument does not wash.

      Yes they do block rapidshare! With Sky rapidshare often hits you with the message "no more download slots available"
      This suggests that Rapid Share are blocking Sky, not the opposite.

      Why don't you accept what you have been told, that you are on a rubbish package and should move to another ISP as many others have done.
