      Between BT and Sky they are traffic shaping. The reason is to allow browsing, email, etc. to go on as normal whilst restricting bandwidth heavy applications such as torrents and streaming media so that everyone can get online. Completely legal and completely annoying

      In about a month I will be away from this shambolic company for good. Like the OP it's not me who pays for the Internet. It took me about 2 hours, many blank pages, many "service unavailable" messages just to post this comment.

      Hi if you can post the name of your exchange or look at SamKnows - Telephone Exchange Search the reason for the exchange name is to see if Sky have upgraded your exchange or to see if there is any ISPs with LLU at your exchange.

      Hi your parents need to contact Sky and ask when your connection is being moved over to a Sky LLU Package.
