Update on situation from Isleworth
Well Boomish. An update from my end.
I received my call back today (17/10) from tech support. My wife took the call from them about 5pm, I suspect just before the 7:30pm SLA was going to be breached. We arranged for them to call back at 7:30pm and big surpise, no call back, but no worries you can't epect great service when they are overloaded and running on a tight budget of 80% of people on zero subsription cost.
Anyway, my current connection stats from the router have magically stabilised (for now). I don't kow if it is to do with calling support and they fixing something in the background, or the fact that I haven't used the computer for a week, but fyi my router stats are as follows:
System Up Time 146:18:30

well Barolo, 2.5 meg still isn't that good for a max package, I am at my wits end, I can't take any more of this crap service, I have to reboot the router regulary, the internet is cripplying slow, I had to reboot the router just to read this forum!
I am so fed up with being fed this rubbish service when I know we can get adsl2 to this area, and very reliable to from the same bloody exchange.
I can't get through to SKY, it's always at least 40 mins wait, I am am now at the point of tellin em to shove it where the sun don't shine..if I ever get through

I know what you mean, currently my internet connection stays up for around 3 to 4 days before requiring a router retstart, which I now do via the URL shortcut method. My speed does vary between 2 and 3.2mb.
I going to get them to put me on the mid package and pay £5 per month,
by the way I am still paying £14 per month for my £512kbps Now Wireless Internet Connection, which doesn't even work throuhg my wireless router anymore so comparing with what I have coming from sky isn't actually that bad....
I hope you are calling them on the freephone number for tech support ?
