      Good luck with your Sky Connect package. I would never recommend it to anyone. Take a look at this thread:

      (Unofficial) FAQ - Sky Connect Users

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      Not only do they unbundle the ADSL, they unbundle the bloody PSTN line as well - absolute nightmare.
      So do Sky if you take Sky phone rental

      My neighbour has had TalkTalk for years and is very satisfied with them. He only took them when Sky messed him around and has not regretted it.

      I wouldn't recommend Talk Talk purely because they have a habit of cancelling your service without authorisation then try to tie you in to a 12 month contract when you complain and want the service reconnected.

      They also have a policy of capping your download speed to around 30% below what your line supports. For example when I was with them, my line synced at 11Mbps but the maximum download speed was 6.8Mbps.
