      It does happen with all ISP's from time to time and a lot of the time its due to the engineers working at the exchange.

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.

      Hi i have been disconnected around 5 times today and i have switch to a speedtouch router now and all seems to be well.

      also spoke to sky customer care and they told me there is a problem with the firmware would not specify what it was but she said to expect a fix soon,

      helpfully this should sort out the drop issues
