      Previous ISP - Before and after joining Sky Broadband

      Just to see who your previous ISP was and how much you were paying and are paying now.

      In the format of:

      ISP - Name of ISP
      Speed - Speed connected at
      Monthly cost - How much you were paying
      Sky Package - Connect / Base / Mid / Max
      Speed - Speed obtained now
      Quality of service compared to previous - Better / Same / Worse

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

      Re: Previous ISP

      Good Idea NR. Mine as below

      ISP - Pipex
      Speed - 1Meg
      Monthly cost - 23.44
      Sky Package - Max
      Speed - ~4.5meg
      Quality of service compared to previous - Slightly worse due to maxing out line capability, but very happy with service as is

      Re: Previous ISP

      ISP - Tiscali
      Speed - 1Meg
      Monthly cost - 14.99
      Sky Package - Mid
      Speed - 5-7Meg dependant
      Quality of service compared to previous - Better, both were/are reliable providers and generally the quality of service was good. Customer Service with Tiscali was poor however but then Sky's is hardly award winning.
