      Sky Broadband is a Joke!!

      Well over the last few months i've noticed my connection get slower and slower in peak times.. now i get this absolutely shocking result



      I will definitely be spending tomorrow changing my provider.. i would rather have the oldskool 56k dial up than this ****e.. that ran faster!!

      Honestly how are you suppose to do anything at them speeds?

      Well done for providing an absolutely crap service sky!!

      Correction:

      Sky connect is a Joke!!

      It most definitely is. Changing provider would be the best thing.

      If your on Connect, chances are that you cannot get unlimited

      SamKnows - Broadband Availability Checker
      But as indefatigable says above, if your on Connect its unlikely that llu is available.
      Edit - get yourself switched then, as you say it will probably be the least hassle option.

      Hi you usually put on the connect package if your exchange is not in a Sky Broadband area or the exchange is full. connect which is a Bt re-badged max product that is traffic managed 4pm till midnight. As per Sky connect T & Cs. As dholdi has said SamKnows exchange checker and let us know.

      Hi yes Saturday and Sunday and bank holidays public holidays and School holidays. My exchange was verified today with LLU so miles away. good to see someone taking notice

      I meant I was not thinking properly I was thinking about My exchange being verified today with LLU not that Unlimited was not very good it is very good. The Expression Miles away means I was not thinking properly. When Btcc22 reminded me about 4pm - midnight and all day on Saturday and Sunday.
      So sorry if I anyone
