      As far as I can tell this is a buyout for the business custom as well as other ISP's such as UKOnline.

      I read on another site that Sky will still own the network with Easynet buyintg bandwidth off Sky for it's Business customers and UKOnline.

      Sounds like a winner for Sky as they get to sell bandwidth and get rid of their customers who they really didn't want (ie non Sky broadband customers)

      Although I reckon any deal is now off with reports like this.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!
