      ISP - Telewest / Virgin Media
      Speed - 20Mb
      Paying - 37
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - 10Mb (10542 kbps at the moment, varies up to 113nn kbps)

      Probably would have stayed with Virgin but for some of their new policies such as speed throttling - FFS I was on their top dollar package, they were creaming it in. Not too interested in 50Mbps service if they're going to cripple my ability to use it. So off to save squillions each year (12 x 27 = 324) which will help pay for my next Macbook Pro/Air or or 3G iPhone

      ISP - Tiscali (joined in the Lineone days)
      Speed - 512 Kbits
      Paid - 19.99 per month
      Sky Package - Mid
      Speed - 5 Meg
      Join Date - one week ago so cannot comment on Sky service yet

      Had mega hassle transferring Broadband with Tiscali four years ago when I moved house. Have also tried to upgrade my package with Tiscali a couple of times in the past to get a better speed for less cost but they were absolutely not interested. Only wished I had moved earlier.

      Joined Sky - Free Sky+ and fitting through friend along with 4 entertainment mixes, broadband mid and free evening/weekend call for 24 per month. You do the maths

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      I thought I'd share my previous ISP

      BOLTBLUE - 2MEG Came with a ATR210 USB MODEM
      AOL Broadband - again 2 meg came with a better modem package.

      We only moved to sky broadband because my dad wanted it, as AOL was in my name etc. So I agreed because It would work out all I would have to pay would be 5 a month lol and my dad pays the rest.

      I would have to say sky is the best so far, Boltblue where awesome but there customer service was crap. AOL where great...

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - Zen Internet
      Speed - Approx 1.2Mbit
      Monthly cost - 17.99
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - 1.5-1.8Mbit
      Quality of service compared to previous - Worse

      Zen was very slow for the attentuation ( 49db with REIN issue ) , but reliable.
      Sky is slightly faster, but very unreliable. ( because of REIN issue )
