      Re: Heads up

      lol im not saying that it is a guarantee that it will be implemented. just what i have heard

      But apparently it set to auto-run and then flag up the accounts that are using 3rd party routers

      I no that it can be notices in LAMA but apparently the reason for the system is that it flags accounts without the account holder having to call for technical support

      Simple answer to them on this: Supply everyone with a fully WiFi n (300Mb, dual frequency)/1Gbit LAN router and they won't have any problems.

      Whilst their routers are only WiFi g capable, then they could loose out if anyone took them to court over 'unfair contract terms'.

      if i wasn't to lazy i would post while using hotspot shield to make my ip look like its coming from america
      I dunno how Sky would ever get hold of our IP addresses here (or match that to identifying info), but I post through a proxy anyway. I guess in case one day I want to spill some huge company secret or something.

      Re: Heads up

      It isn't to be done from here that was a separate matter being talked about earlier.

      Think that it's to be a system which checks all sky BB lines for the use of a 3rd party router not 100% sure how it's going to be done but if I find out more I will post it.

      Think that it can currently been seen in a current CST system if a 3rd party router is being used but not sure which one though. Think it's LAMA but I never noticed when I have used it.

      user05 would know much more since he works in CST
