      Re: Sky Launches New Up To 20Mb Broadband Product

      Have they started "testing" lines again before this happens? Over the last two days I have had multiple disconnections after having had a stable line for some time - each time it reconnects at a lower speed and currently it is showing as being in "ADSL Traning" (note the spelling mistake is theirs, not mine :P)

      I am on the "mid" package, with a max connection speed of between 3.5 and 4Mb, currently down to 2Mb.

      Unfortunately this "improved service" is going to cost me more for nothing extra.

      I am currently paying 5 per month for mid - with this change I will either have to downgrade my package or pay more for what in effect is the same. My connection won't go over around 4mb regardless of the potential max "up to" speed and as far as I am aware I have never needed more than the current download limit. :-(

      oh and my connection is currently now hovering around 1 mb.

      Same here; I use about 3-4 GB/month -- more than the 2GB free service, but well under the "Everyday" limit of 10GB.

      We apparently get switched to the 7.50/month product whether we want to or not on September 1st; AFAICT, the only useful part of the upgrade is that the upload speed goes to 1.3 from .6 (for all products, even the free one).

      Thumbs down Re: Sky Launches New Up To 20Mb Broadband Product

      A Mid/Everyday customer here who's not going to see any benefit from the 'upgrade'.

      In fact since the last 'upgrade' to the upto 10mb service (and 75% reduction on usage), I've gone out and signed up with a Wireless ISP in Kent (Vfast Internet , WiMax Class Wireless Broadband in Kent) and have an upto (pretty much always) 10mb down 2mb up connection.

      I still have my ~2.8mb Sky DSL line as a backup (and have some of the household connected to it to split bandwidth consumption at peak times).

      Until FTTC/P through Sky, I'm not going to get any more benefit from the so called 'upgrades' that are being introduced.

      Re: Sky Launches New Up To 20Mb Broadband Product

      It's a bit of a curate's egg for me on the mid package without SKY talk. As I understand it - for an extra 2.50 a month I get moved to unlimited plus higher speeds - so better than the price for an unlimited package right now - if I have understood it correctly.

      Because we're not in an unbundled O2 area ATM (And they seem to have stalled on LLU roll out) it looks like perhaps the best deal.

      Cheers

      Theres going to be winners and losers, winners are those on unlimited already
      and those on base and everyday with shortish lines.

      Losers are those on everyday who don't use much but over 2gb and have long lines.

      Those on everyday who are not happy will be-able to take there mac code and
      leave.
