      Using the dish for broadband is very expensive for the bandwidth...... oh and there's a little problem as the dish is one way (download not upload!!!!).

      There are 2 way satellite broadband providers in the US for really remote areas, and they have the added problem of serious lag due to the time taken for the signal to be bounced off the satellite, over a second.

      Unfortunately they will do a press release before answering drect questions from customers. The aswer given is the current stance, which of course can change on any day or hour.

      Re: Rumour: Changes to Sky+HD Subscriptions from 1st October 2010

      Why can't Sky also make changes to my download speeds as well as subscriptions? When I complain about my poor download/upload speeds. It's "well it's probably your line. Try doing this and that and......." .Mind you, I suspect the problem could also be BT with their crap line and service. We still seem to be in an era when thick plebs like me are expected to have at least a GCSE in IT to have any chance of understanding, let alone solving ongoing problems with web speeds. I for one would decamp to Virgin like a shot if they didn't charge a lot more for the phone side. We need to consign BT to a museum somewhere and update our antiquated phone system and that would either confirm SKY's excuses or expose their lies............Truly - I get weary of the whole thing.............

      the reason broadband is crap is cause its the copper lines that bt use thats why if it was fibre it would probably be stable and fast lol

      When the Sky+ subs was made free, sales departments were told a few months before and offers for free Sky+ subs were offered to customers signing up to Sky+. There has been none of this activity around the HD mix. The only rumours are from some uninformed posters on here and digitalspy.

      If it's going to change then they will likely announce it when the end of year results are out.
