      Our internet is personal use, it is paid for personally and not claimed in any business accounts. I am employed not self employed. I work from home as my employer is small and to fund an office and all that entails is too costly at this stage, although we are looking at options for the future. I also work from home for personal reasons.. it means I am able to do the school run and I do not have to rely on anyone else to take care of my child! To class us as a business user would be wrong, we do not download masses of files and there is only little old me sat at the PC carrying out my job, I maybe use the internet for about 3 hours a day for business use. My partner and I use it for about 5 hours on 2 PCs of an evening!

      I can agree with what you are saying, all I mean is you cannot really blame Sky for the fact that they do not allow business use on their product, and so I would probably keep quiet on that score to them, as they have been known to terminate the account.

      Personnally I cannot see any harm with what you doing or using it for what you are wanting and so I don't really think it would be an issue with Sky. I just wish,

      1) They sort your connection out and quickly

      2) Make sure when they accept applications for BB that they check that you have read the T and C's or do not allow you to sign up. That way evryone knows where they stand.

      The way i did it was to use a cable/ethernet router (Belkin Wireless G Router)to give me wireless from my old Vigor 2600 and also another 3 network connections

      One of the network connections from your main router is "Lost" as it is used to feed the cable/ethernet router so the net gain is three new network connections.
