      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - Aquiss (330G usage)
      Speed - 3-5Mbps
      Monthly cost - 24.99
      then
      ISP - UKFSN (330G usage)
      Speed - 2-5Mbps
      Monthly cost - 19.99
      And finally
      Sky Package - Mid
      Speed - 4.5-6.5Mbps

      At a cost of 5 and a better service, best move i've ever made, although 1st 2 weeks were
      very unreliable, it has settled down now, and soon going onto Max

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - Freeserve / Orange
      Speed - 1/2Mb
      Monthly cost - 27.99
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - 9.5Mbps-11Mbps
      Quality of service compared to previous- Worse,the need for almost daily router reboots very annoying and fairly weak wireless signal disapointing. Overall VFM good but could be so much better if they could sort out the dropped connection issue.

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - Bulldog
      Speed - 8Mb
      Monthly cost - 29.99 inc telephone line
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - Downstream 6Mb/Upstream 416kbps
      Quality of service compared to previous - very poor customer service experience! And I pay for Sky Max package, but only get 6Mb speed. Can I ask Sky to change it to Sky Mid package?

      Re: Previous ISP

      ISP: Demon
      Speed: 1 Mbps (allegedlly - I never actually got close to that!)
      Monthly cost: 24.99
      Sky Package: Mid
      Speed: 1.6Mbps
      Quality of service compared to previous: Overall better. I can't connect (without using a proxy) to a website I administer and e-mail has dropped out a couple of times, but I don't have the constant dropping of my connection for no reason that I had with Demon.

      Re: Previous ISP

      ISP-Talk Talk
      Speed-8Mb
      Monthly Cost 21 inc all phone calls and line rental.
      Sky Package-Not yet decided.Scared about all the agro of trying to swap from one ISP to another,have read a lot of stories about Talk Talk sending in debt collecting agencies when you cancel your payments!
      As anybody on this forum swapped from TalkTalk to Sky and if so how did it go?
      I want to swap because I already have Sky TV.

      Re: Previous ISP

      ISP: V21 who turned into Biscit who then went bust
      Speed: 2mb Actual: 1.8-1.9mbps
      Monthly Cost: 16.99 included fixed IP (not requested but thrown in)
      Sky Package: Connect
      Speed: 2.9mbps
      Quality: A 2.5 hour outage after two days of startup is not impressive. Browsing not as crisp as before. Customer Service was not available late evening. Disappointed after three days use.
