      I was an ntl customer for several years and was 100% happy with their broadband which was very reliable. As soon as Sky Broadband was available in my area I did a check and immediately signed up to the Max package. For 10 per month my speed now exceeds the 10mb that I had with ntl, I get around 12mb. To date, it has not let me down and I am very happy. Even though I have had to change back to BT, I am around 20 per month better off and I have HD as well.

      Having spoken to a friend who is still on cable, he was considering moving onto sky and rang VM. They offered him the same package that he has now for 1/2 price for life to keep him as a customer. This seems to contradict what has ben posted here but could it be that VM are targeting certain areas? We are in Manchester.

      We have not killed it, I think its just a case of the wrong copy and paste. Hopefully we can get the URL posted asap. I have had a look on the register, and to me it may mean this one.
