      Well thats knackered it.

      I can only get BSB Connect and I aint paying 17

      Plus I think that the limitation of size for E-Mails would be restrictive for my wife.

      Never mind eh. It pays to research :-)

      Thanks for all your help folkies

      Re: Sky Broadband Packages

      Hi all,

      Just wondered if anyone could tell me if there is any way to find out who is 'supplying' my BB. I joined up on the 5 connect package about 3 weeks ago, so I realised that because my exchange had not been unbundled, sky was not yet in the area, so it must be supplied through BT gear. However, after a check on my local exchange today with samknows, I found that sky had been enabled last week. Is there any way of telling when the change occurs and will there be any difference in my connection.

      currently:
      Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
      Line Attenuation 16.0 db 10.0 db
      Noise Margin 13.9 db 24.0 db

      As you can see from those stats, I already have an excellent and very stable connection. Can i expect it to be any different when sky 'take over'?

      Did post this in the wrong place before, think its gone, apologies to the Mods if it hasn't.
      Asus P6T Deluxe - i7 920 @3.6GHz - 750GB Samsung F1 - 6GB OCZ Platinum 1600MHz - XFX GTX260 'Black Edition' - Tagan 1100W PSU - TT 'Big Water' 760i - Antec 1200 - Windows 7 64-bit - Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit

      ADSL Link..............Down .............Up
      Connection Speed..9215 kbps......606 kbps
      Line Attenuation... 20.0 db..........11.9 db
      Noise Margin........ 20.9 db..........22.0db

      Re: Sky Broadband Packages

      As a headsup, when an exchange is enabled, it usually takes approximately one month to bring onto line etc.

      It can take FAR longer to move existing subscribers over from Connect! My Exchange got LLU enabled at the end of March - and still there is no sign of me being moved to LLU! The latest I got from Sky was a letter saying that the 5/month "6 months special offer" for Connect (which would have run out in August) would now last for as long as it needs to!

      To answer the original question - I believe that 448k uplink speed is Connect - while Base or Mid LLU are 400k

      Re: Sky Broadband Packages

      Hello,

      Could someone help me? I'm trying to get the Sky Broadband 8 meg for 5 a month. Believe it's the "mid" version. Anyway, I've tried to order it online and the only option that comes up is the 8 meg connect version for 17 a month? Is there a reason that only this is coming up and that the 5 version is not available?!?!?

      Am a bit confused!
      Help!

      Gareth

      Re: Sky Broadband Packages

      Hi the package that sky is offering you is their connect package. This is a rebranded Bt package, and means that the line has not been unbundled for Skys own equipment. In time hopefully this will happen but as they have offered you connect for 17 as opposed to 5 it may take time.

      You could also stick your details in here just to double check that Sky is not in your local exchange:
