      Request for beta testers

      SkyUser are about to embark on a brand new top secret project. The end product will be absolutely FREE of charge for our members and guests. It would be of benefit to absolutely every single Sky Broadband Customer who is on Base, Mid, or Connect, although Sky Max customers would probably find it very useful as well.

      We cannot go into much detail, but we are excited to have received the first build of this new project, this evening. Initially this will be a closed beta, but will become open to a wider field within the next few weeks.

      We are going to need a fair few beta testers to help us on this project and invite your applications for consideration.

      Please email myself newsreader at sitedomain with the subject SkyUser Beta Tester Application and I will add you to the list and contact you asap. As this is a project that will require a fair few testers, we are not going to be using the existing team as default. Those who are currently Beta Testers, could you please do as above, if you wish to be involved.

      More news to follow soon.

      Re: Request for beta testers

      Its a project we are doing with one of our partners to SkyUser. We asked if this was possible, and if we could offer it FOC to our members or guests.

      We have already got 3 of the SkyUser staff using this software and so far so good. The snag is, it is so early in development, but moving at a fast pace, for us to roll it out to a wider audience at the moment.

      Once the release is deemed as stable and most typos etc are sorted out we will email all those who have so far applied, and get you guys n gals involved. A rough time scale would be at the earliest, next week, so keep checking your inbox

      Well it has to be a true download monitor that properly watches the router data transfer outside of the internal network as opposed to one that monitors just the PC that it is on and not all the other devices that may be attached to the router (games console etc etc).
