      I was thinking that, I never have problems, other than when sites are having problems.

      I don't think Sky throttle anything.

      Re: Megaupload

      Well you say 'I like the way it's Sky's fault', but I have two ADSL lines here, one Sky then other is 02.

      Yesterday my Sky line stopped working for Filesonic - Similar type of service to Mega Upload, yet my O2 line is still happy as Larry.

      I need to do some more tests to confirm where the problem is, but early indicators would suggest to me that Sky are doing something, either intentionally or by fault. I will post back my finding.

      All I would say is, just be wary about how quick you are to Jump to defend Sky...

      Then surely the same should apply to blaming Sky prior to finding exactly what is the problem ???

      I can't access Mediafire.com, I used Hidemyass proxy and got through. I can get through to Megaupload okay.

      Baffled, a glitch at my end wouldnb't be that specific would it. Everything else is fine.

      I have exactly the same problem today in that I can't access files on Mediafire. Strangely it returns a 404 error as if the page doesn't exist - whereas I know it does.
      Very annoying.

      This has been happening on and off for over a week now.

      Not sure if it's Sky's fault as I had the same issue on my 3 Broad Band.
