      ISP - NTL
      Speed - 4MB
      Monthly Cost - 24.99
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - 16MB (connecting at about 8MB at best)
      Quality of service - Downloads better but general service is poor and constantly changing ip address is a pain.

      Re: Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      ISP - Pipex
      Speed - 1MB
      Cost - 23.44
      Sky - Max
      Speed - varies, but max speed has been 13MB+,
      Service - speed is much improved, but router needs rebooting regularly, which wasn't the case with pipex

      Sky Package - Connect / Base / Mid / Max

      Please do not add any other info, gripes, happiness as they will be removed
      FORMAT Example:

      ISP - F2S
      Speed - 7mb
      Monthly cost - 23.99
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - 8mb
      Quality of service compared to previous - Better
