      How's the usage going? Mine is now on 9.58GB. I'm actually looking forward to this

      Re: Sky Broadband Usage On MySky?

      I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for the free 6 month unlimited deal that I posted previously.I will pay Sky 10 each month for their Unlimited Broadband and for the first 6 months Sky will credit my account with 10 per month.This is confirmed during the ordering process for the sceptics amongst us.The way I see it is that I'll pay 60 for Broadband Unlimited next year,the same as I paid for Everyday this year,and I should also get 20 because I did the deal through Quidco.If I was to be automatically upgraded ,then I would have been stung for 10 per month.It's worth considering for anyone close to their usage allowance.

      There is also another side benefit, in that you will get the full functions of Sky Player free, which is worth the cost of a multi room subscription. I would not benefit from the speed and I am unlikely to need the unlimited allowance, but I am considering it for that alone.

      My Sky shows that my upgrade was applied immediately and my Quidco tracked within a couple of hours at 25,so if all goes well I'll only pay 35 for unlimited broadband next year.No increase in speed yet but it's early days I suppose.

      I have just got my 90% useage email, so later tomorrow i will probably go over the 10GB allowance (kids off school and no doubt some Santa tracking courtesy of NORAD).

      This leaves me with a choice.

      Option 1, upgrade before 7th January and get 6 months unlimted free plus Quidco cashback.

      Option 2, Get a MAC code and switch to O2 and get more Quidco cashback.

      I'll get back to you.

      I've just gone over the 10GB so now to see what they do. I'm heading for O2 but I want to see what action they will take, if any

      You will have a note in your account saying that if you go over again in the next 5 months you will be automatically upgraded to Unlimited.

      At 18:00 today 9.45GB.

      I have worked out the costs for 12 months broadband going through Quidco.

      Sky will cost me 40.

      O2 will cost me 38.08. The 3 months free offer doesn't seem to be available any more.

      This is the 2nd month we have gone over. Last month we got the message that said if we went over again within 5 months they'd upgrade us automatically. We've just gone over so I'm waiting for them to do as they threatened.
