      Force 9

      I was with F9:

      ISP - Force 9
      Speed - 2Mb
      Monthly cost - 22/month
      Sky Package - Mid
      Speed - 8Mb on router/just over 6Mb by testing (can't remember how I di it)
      Quality of service compared to previous - I'd say better, there are slow times but I used to get those with F9.

      Kyu

      ISP - Orange (wanadoo)
      Speed - 2mb
      Monthly cost - 15
      Sky Package - Mid
      Speed - 7mbps+
      Quality of service compared to previous - Worse*

      *a couple of problems that can be resolved or worked around though i feel i shouldnt have to do that.

      other than that, excellent value and useful support forum although 'unofficial'. quick delivery, and went online exactly on the date.

      Re: Previous ISP

      ISP - Pipex Max
      Speed - Upto 8Mb/s (got 6Mb/s)
      Monthly cost - 24
      Sky Package - Connect
      Speed - 7 Mb/s MOVED HOUSE AS WELL THOUGH!
      Quality of service compared to previous - Same

      I moved so the speeds are not comparable, previous exchange did not have Sky. The only advantage of my previous ISP was that I had a fixed IP.
      There is no p in Thomson.

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - ntlworld
      Speed - 0.5 MB
      Monthly cost - 25 including free anytime calls
      Sky Package - Max (only because I don't want to bother with DL limits)
      Speed - 1.9 MB
      Quality of service compared to previous - Better

      BT have always told me my line is only capable of 0.5 MB. My speed with sky is almost 4 times this (and it's rock solid too).

      As someone who was told that they were too far from the exchange to receive ADSL when it was first introduced (> 63db attenuation), I am very pleased with this.
