      I read it as 10GB a month not a day if that is what you mean which is much less than 40GB (which I personally don't get anyway near anyway) but seeing as I was paying 5 a month this time last year and am now paying 10 P/M, this would mean I am paying more for less.

      Ah, you mean the cap is 10Gig per day.... 300gig pm?

      Hmmmmm, interesting take. Certainly wasn't how i read it. I took 'everday' to mean a package designed for 'everyday' style usage.

      I read that as the product is going to be called Everyday, with a cap of 10gb. If this replaces Mid, then Mid has a 40gb cap. To me that means, on Everyday, once you reach 10gb you have reached your limit.

      On Mid at the moment, I don't think Sky have ever enforced the caps. If they are reducing the cap on this and effectively renaming it, then that could mean, those already on Mid would be still on it, as a legacy product, and so have the older caps and price point.

      We will have to wait and see, but I for one will not be happy if they cut it to 10g a month

      Do you think it is something to do with this news from BT?

      BBC NEWS | Technology | BT to roll-out faster broadband

      That may explain the Connect package being increased to 20mb, god knows what that will do to capacity

      I don't think any of us that are currently on Mid will be but what NewsreadeR says above what make sense as they can't suddenly drop that limit down by that amount. Either that or they say to those of us currently on Mid that it is being reduced to something like 20GB.

      So for me on Max, still paying a tenner a month, will it mean I'll be on 20Mb download, and 1.3 Upload?

      Still with unlimited cap?

      Surely great for the Max customers, but seems poor the way they've dealt with Mid.

      Re: Sky Broadband Changes - 22nd June

      Sorry, if I'm being a bit dim here, but for the Sky Broadband "Everyday" package to work at up to 10Mbps, won't it be necessary to connect via ADSL2+ to get that speed ?
      Would there still be a choice for current Mid users like myself with an almost 4km line to still connect with G.dmt mode ?
      I've been on ADSL2+ before when I was on Max and my line was very unstable.Changing to g.dmt mode has made the line more stable and increased the speed by 30% .

      Can be on G.DMT on the max package too so i guess it would be no different?
