      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - Wanadoo/Orange
      Speed - 2MB
      Monthly cost - 17.99
      Sky Package - Max 10.00
      Speed - supposed to be upto 16MB, actually get around 6MB (on a good day)
      Quality of service compared to previous: More hasstle now - ie, plug/unplug power lead to router every day, massive variations with Download speeds?
      NO SATELLITE SIGNAL RECEIVED - AGAIN...

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - BT Broadband Option 3
      Speed - 6mb
      Monthly cost - 26.99
      Sky Package - Mid
      Speed - 6mb (was hoping for closer to the full 8mb)
      Quality of service compared to previous - Only just on but surfing does seem a little quicker, however loving the uncapped torrents, just did a test download of new Heroes ep and it downloaded in about 7 minutes at the full 750kb !! So hopefully proves the speedtesters are just estimates
      Post Sky DLM and after some cowboy contracters and BT ruined my line quality (was 6mb pre DLM):
