psycho, and anybody else, is your internet connection still active even without an internet green light, as mine is being reported.
i am trying to see if there is a pattern emerging of long term disconnections occuring after relatively short times of actually being on-line,and technical saying the line is still active.
an active line can be misinterpreted down a chain of different offices/departments!
my internet connection has been down for 15 weeks today, after having 2 sublime days of being connected at 8 meg.
i have had all the usual replies of exchange problems, but nobody at sky can give me an answer to the question "if there are problems at the coventry highway exchange, why have people who have been disconnected a shorter time than me been reconnected, and also why are more people being signed up and connected if there is a problem"
does anybody else know if other people have been connected at their expense.
an on-going problem is not a sufficient answer to any ones case.
if bt engineers are in the exchange connecting people, then surely a re-connection could be resolved at the same time, or is that too naive to asume?
being cynical perhaps the fee to bt from sky for a connection gets paid on time, whereas a service arrangement may not.
i have been a sky subscriber since the first days of analogue satellite tv, but if this is the way they want to treat their customers they may pay heavily in the long run when cancellations and trimming of services start to escalate because their infrastructure is so rocky.

Would also have been nice for you to announce the correct figures on the number of users affected and an ETA as to when these affected people can expect to be re-connected. The post is remnant of a political type answer, these people are human, if you have the information they have the right to hear please post it. No need for scripted answers here, we are all adults.

Maybe Sky should consider a "Status Page" to stop the rumours.
Its always good though to hear from someone at Sky to put "the other sides" view forward!
