      Would have preferred doing online and not having to spend time in a queue but never mind. The online updating service has never seemed to be working any time I have thought to have a look at it.

      Edit: Have upgraded to Max. Will take up to 72 hours.

      Edit2: Come back home this evening and find it's been done. Now synching at 9499 kbs rather than 6147. Thought I'd get more then that so maybe I might need to do some tweaking perhaps.

      Not that I do not appreciate their gesture, but haven't Sky been a bit sneaky about this. Yes everyone that frequents the Forum know what is happening, but what about the 2 million others that don't. They have had no opportunity to up-grade their package to take advantage of the price freeze. Has anyone received a letter telling them of the changes?

      I should point out that this is will have no effect on me as I already have SkyTalk.

      A little bit surprising that there's been no post from the Sky Broadband Team as yet officially confirming this change?

      I don't want to worry anyone but at the moment it's still only information received from a "source" and has not yet been officially confirmed.

      a "source" and has not yet been officially confirmed.
      Although this has not been confirmed by the Sky Broadband Team, it is all the information that we have, and is definitely 100% correct, as at the time we posted the information.

      I am not sure if the Sky Broadband Team would confirm this, but we will know for definite once the letters start arriving in the next few days, that's of course if they do go out on 25th November.

      re: Price Freezes for some Loyal Customers

      So let me understand it...

      I'm on SKY mid for 5
      From March 2009 I get to pay 10 for an 8 mb service
      If I got to SKY max now and start paying 10 straight away I get to keep paying 10 for the next couple of years.
      If I stay with SKY I can pay 10 from March and keep the same service I'm on now?

      To be honest for the marginal difference it would make for my low downloading mileage I think I will use my extra 3 months worth of 5 - and maybe put it towards an O2 connection!!

      Doh!

      I'm on MAX because it's unlimited, can't get full speed.

      Got multi-room too, so glad my broadband is staying cheap.

      Well to late for me now as I already gone to 02 which I found to be just as good as Sky.I also really fed up with sky as I don't think Sky are worth the money any more.There movie content has really gone down hill lately the only thing they seem interested in is to squeeze every penny out of there customers.Well in Jan 2010 I will be going over to Freesat HD PVR so no more paying fatcat share holders for me.Been with Sky since they started and was paying around 92 pounds pm this year.

      re: Price Freezes for some Loyal Customers

      Slightly off topic, but will Sky be passing on the VAT reductions? I think the "complicated structure" of Sky, with regards to tax, might make it a little complicated. Sky BB & Talk are registered in Luxembourg I think, and there is something done with the Sky magazine and VAT exemption that makes it all even more complicated. I wonder if they will, not that it makes much of a difference even if they do.
