      SkyUser Visitors

      We have a lovely new statistics program which shows us the % of ISP's customers and their visits here.

      If we are to presume, that they have come here to look at the prospect of signing up for Sky Broadband, a few ISP's should be a little worried.

      The block for PI assignments is the sky.com IP range. Obviously still not updated on the internets databases yet.

      Not an option we have available to us

      The figures make interesting reading of who actually visits this site though, it lists every single network etc. Lets just say Microsoft, Dell, and a few other big names visit

      While I guess a lot of people come to these forums for help with moving to Sky and the like I don't think you can judge those figures overall. For example I was reading the other day that ITV (all all people) are looking at going into the Broadband market and if they did and their prices were competitive then perhaps the itvusers forum would have similar figures.

      Fair point, its just a guide of the traffic for us, thats all.

      Still makes interesting reading though

      I take your point NR. It is only because I received the email from Sky BB telling me that my exchange was enabled that I did a search to see what experience others had of Sky and came accross this forum.

      What was refreshing was that even though there are numerous horror stories listed within the forum, there are also many 'satisfied' customers too. It was as a direct result of these experiences that I decided to take the plunge into Sky BB myself.

      If I was an ISP I would be worried by Sky's offerings.

      Are the stats based on unique IP addresses rather than each time the same person visits?

      Hope thats understandable!

      The strange thing is, stats wise NTL/Telewest and BT individually are currently outnumbering other ISP's customers visitors at a ratio of approx 5-1, apart from Energis which is at a rate of 2-1 against the next runner up F2S

      Looks like u guys are using Google Analytics?
      I use them for my AdWords Campaigns and they provide better analytics for my site than my own web host does.....Well done.
