      Sky do not throttle on the Unlimited and Lite packages, they do on the Connect package(although they always blame BT)

      If everyone downloaded 3-400Gb a month like some of our members do, then they would probably be forced to throttle, but most do not use anything like that. I used to use about 7-8Gb a month but since Anytime+ was introduced, that has jumped to about 20Gb.

      You are entitled to your opinions.

      Whilst there are a number of Sky employees who do contribute to this forum on a regular or irregular basis, there is IMHO a larger number of people, including myself, who do not work for BSkyB or any of it's subsidiaries.

      As for traffic management, there is a little piece of web site blocking that goes on under the guidance of the IWF ( Report criminal images such as child sexual abuse to the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) ) as with all the other UK based ISPs of any repute. Other than that, you are limited to what you can download during a month and store on your computer/s or any respective drives.

      The technology that all the ISPs use (i.e. 56K Modem, ADSL, ADSL2, ADSL2+, FTTC, FTTP, 3G, 4G, Satellites or whatever else comes along) will always restrict the maximum bandwidth that someone can ulitimately use. Of course some people use multiple connections or may purchase leased lines, but this costs a lot of money at this time.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps

      There is no packet inspection at all from sky
      atleast on the easynet gear that im on

      I have been on the net since before most people on here even knew what it was (almost 17 years)

      And went broadband in late 1999 with ntl
      and i knew when they started packet sniffing well in advance of them admiting to it (a few years before)

      sky's core network is a1

      far better than ntl's ever was
