      Are other ISPs worried about SKY?

      With due respect to all those who are enjoying good service from SKY, it is quite apparent that there are equal number of other customers who are disgusted by SKY's irresponsible behaviour. It seems that at the moment getting good service from SKY is equivalent to winning National Lottery and to be honest, it is no good !!

      Sorry to hear that Kavassery! Unlucky! But think about it Sky are a relatively new ISP, Even though they Took over Easynet! There may still be some teething problems about!

      I have had some problems with Sky's CS + my router turned up late + I would like to use a different router to the flakey Sky/Netgear compared to Pipex, which was smooth running from the day I signed up with them.

      However, the reality is that Sky is offering a potentially MUCH better service at considerably less than half the price of Pipex and others. They have taken the initiative and used their financial and marketing muscle to bring down the cost of internet access for their customers and that is a massive step in the right direction.

      If (when?) they get their customer and technical services sorted out, they will deservedly be at the top of the ISP pile.

      my exit from NTL

      Signed up with Sky before leaving NTL, taking TV during the cheap deal period in July, after the launch of BB.
      Phoned NTL and they wanted me to stay - they told me that they could do the BB package at half price - so I asked why I had been overcharged then - they agreed I had been - so I asked for it to be backdated - they agreed 6 months - I asked how long they would provide BB at a fixed rate for the future - no deal. So agreed to terminate TV BB and a phone line. That was August - still waiting for the 85 refund. moneysavingexpert.com is useful for info regarding "exits".

      My old ISP were no problem - which is unfortunate really. If they'd given me a hard time I may not have signed up with sky yet and would still be with a broadband ISP that works instead of dial up.

      Thumbs down

      I've just gone through the 'dial up' situation for a while when I joined sky, so frustrating !

      I phoned NTL last week to cancel my phone so to free up the number for BT to re-use ready for Sky BB. They asked why I was cancelling, I told them I was moving to Sky BB, they said fair enough and to come back if Sky BB wasn't performing. Few days later my wife received a call from NTL at home offering some kind of deal to stay with NTL, she told them I was dealing with it and they said they'd email me the offer, they havent so far, not that I think it will be comparable.

      Oh yeah and they said a load of people were leaving NTL to join SKy BB too.
