      I think Newsreader is right.

      They were my previous ISP and never knowingly booted anyone in the 6 years I was with them. The FUP and warnings are just a formality. There's a member here who also used to be with them and will be able to verify this. They said many times on the forum that they'd have to have a court order to proceed with anything.

      I have just double checked. There is only a specific mention of file-sharing through P2P networks mentioned for the Connect package.

      Under the 'Acceptable Use Policy' it does say:

      • violates any Law;

      theres the full section, so pretty much confirms that downloading illegal torrents etc is the same for Sky as any other ISP

      However, most ISPs won't act unless on a court order etc
