      Are you getting this-
      Service unavailable
      Sorry, we're currently unable to display your broadband usage information but we hope to be back up and running soon. Please try again later.
      I seem to get that more often than the actual usage.

      I guess many would have shipped out from Sky when they cancelled Mid but were in contract for other things and now Sky rely on inertia. When mine comes out of contract in April/May and if all things are the same as they are now, I'll be off to BT and o2. Sky TV will remain but whilst relatively happy with the BB, the telephone charges are creeping up way too high and I now only use the phone line for inclusive calls and have to pay for 0845 anyway. If I didn't need a phone line for BB I would not have one as I can easily use mobile and VOIP.

      For anyone out there with an iphone on O2 UK , i have just rung O2 up and they are giving iphone customers 12 months free home broadband , their unlimited , up to 8MB , package . You just have to pay 30 upfront for the router and set up pack but this is credited to your broadband account to use when the 12 months free is up .12 month contract as well . Rang Sky and they have no retention deals for broadband customers at all so got my MAC code and O2 here i come .

      We used the 10 gig in 12 days. With 4 days to go till next period we are now sitting on 23.08 Gb. The usual warning of, if you go over again within 5 months we will automatically upgrade you.

      If they try, and succeed, I'll be off. I like the idea of free O2 for iPhone users.

      3 years ago I signed up to 40Gb bandwidth @5 per month. They changed that to 10 per month for the same allowance, and now have changed it again to 10 Gb allowance, or 15 for unlimited.

      When we were with Plusnet the allowance was reduced to 20Gb and speed was then capped if we went over the limit. We left soon after that. I'm beginning to pack my bags for leaving Sky now too.

      3.35 gb in 6 days for me already and that's without really trying.I can't imagine many people will stay under 10 gb.In the short term I think sky will make a lot of money upgrading people but long term many people will jump ship .

      Re: Sky Broadband Usage On MySky?

      Ok mine has just been updated with my latest bill and reset usage to '0'. Last night I played 3 hours on counterstrike source, the wife surfed facebook and has literally only surfed for 2 hours today and it shows this:-

      Your Broadband Usage Tool
      Current package - Sky Broadband Everyday

      Usage for the period: 08/12/09 - 08/01/10
      These dates usually match your billing period.
      You're currently within your allowance

      You can carry on using your current Sky Broadband package, but for truly unlimited usage, plus faster download speeds*, why not upgrade to Sky Broadband Unlimited?

      *Depending on your location and line quality.
      10GB
      0GB
      Last updated: Next allowance starts in: Allowance this period: GB and % used:
      09 Dec. 12:46 29days 10GB 0.44GB = 4.4%



      Now 4.4% in 1 night WITH NO music streaming or downloads... just a few hours of game play and lite surfing.... Could they actually be reporting the usage wrong?

      On the service details page mine says:

      Your Broadband Usage

      Your usage allowance for this billing period is 10GB and you have used 3.45GB since 9 Dec. 18:53.


      That is clearly wrong as on the actual usage page it stats that I have used 3.45GB in total in the period.
