      Leaving Sky Connect, which ISP?

      Decided that it's time to leave Sky Connect, as it's terrible. I can't upgrade to Sky max/unlimited because it's not in my area, so what ISP do I switch to? There's no LLU in my area either, and I'm thinking at the moment it's a choice between Plusnet and o2. Anybody willing to help me out on this?

      Re: Leaving Sky Connect, which ISP?

      I left sky connect and joined BT option 3 that was over a year ago and just signed up for another year.speeds are good after 5pm

      I know people complain about BT about price etc,last year was paying more for my BB and phone package,but this year think I'm paying less than sky connect package. Got unlimited surf and talk for 19.99 a month plus line rental think at the time sky was 17 for connect and 5 for phone package plus line rental which I paid to BT.

      Will stand corrected if someone knows pricing of sky now as only use them for minimum tv package.

      Speed test result below was just done now, I know sky connect be worse as it's a weekend

      Plusnet offer good services if you dont have LLU available at your exchange. If you do have LLU available on your exchange though then go for one of the LLU services.
