      Previous ISP 1 - ntl (cable)

      Speed - 2mbps (what would now be the 4mbps service)
      Cost - 24.99/month
      Usage Cap - Used to be 30GB/month IIRC, then became "unlimited" (subject to FUP).
      Quality of Service - very stable & reliable connection for 5 years (bar a couple of problems), the customer service was often very poor.

      Previous ISP 2 - Firefly (ADSL)
      Speed - 2mbps (I didn't regrade to "up to" 8mbps RADSL/Max, as by the time that had arrived, I decided to wait for the contract to run out & switch to Sky)
      Cost - 24.99/month
      Usage cap - 30GB/month (& 1 per extra GB over the 30 IIRC)
      Quality of Service - quite stable & reliable connection, excellent customer service.

      Current ISP - Sky Broadband Max (ADSL2+)
      Speed - "up to" 16mbps, currently ~ 8mbps (line distance/quality)
      Cost - 10/month
      Usage cap - "unlimited" (subject to FUP).
      Quality of Service - some issues so far with stability, but seems to be improving. Not officially used CS/TS yet so can't rate them.

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - BT
      Speed - 2Meg
      Monthly cost - 25.99
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - ~12-13Mb
      Quality of service compared to previous - Slightly worse due to having to reboot the router every day or so, but the speed is good once that's done.
