      Will Sky+ slow down my internet?

      I have Bulldog broadband and am very happy with it, constantly getting 6-7meg speeds.

      I'm having Sky+ installed next week and was wondering if this will affect my speeds as the Sky+ box has to be connected to the phone line.

      This is how it'll be set-up:

      I have my phone socket in the kitchen. This obviously has a broadband filter on it.

      The ADSL connection from the filter goes to my modem/router, which in turn is connected to a homeplug in the kitchen. This gives me network access points via the mains sockets around my flat and works perfectly.

      The phone connection from the filter goes to the lounge for my landline.

      What I'm saying is I want to connect a phone line splitter at the point where I have my phone connected in the lounge, so as to feed that phone and the Sky+ box.

      Just wondering if this will affect my broadband speeds?

      Thanks in advance for any help

      Hi, in general extension leads and adsl dont go well together, however if you are happy with your bb what you are proposing do do shouldnt make it any worse
