      My post has been misunderstood, I was not saying that it is dearer for me to have Sky Broadband when you take into account the TV subscription. I was making reference to how Sky can afford to offer broadband at such a cheap price. They get more money off me per month than an ISP charging say 15.99 a month. Still works out cheaper for me and makes more money for them!!

      Ah sorry mate

      Ok thats an easy to answer LLU cost a hell of a lot less per user than BT's ISP Stream hence the cost of 17 for the connect package and that is MAX Adsl.

      its abit over my head atm so i will read it again in the morning, so are you saying option 3 user are line sharing reducing the speed they get ?
      Sky tell me if i go to connect they will upgrade me to option 2 that might be a good thing for a fiver and im sure we dont use above our 40gb limit with bt now.
      Well i have had no complaints so maybe i will be better sticking with 2 when it is in my area rather than rushing to the max ?

      No Option 3 means that the ISP get one part of the line so you can have the internet via an LLU provider and the voice side on the line remains with the telephone provider namely BT
