      P2P footie and Sky broadband.

      My main question is - can I watch P2P footie on the 'medium' package worry free with respect to throttling etc.

      With Tiscali, my average speeds went down to 0.2 (a tenth) once I started watching odd P2P footy matches on Saturdays.

      Now I've switched to Sky, can I expect to be penalised in the same way?

      Thanks

      Re: P2P footie and Sky broadband.

      hi , i am no expert but i used to be with orange on a 6gb d/load per month..i used to watch p2p football definately once or twice a week..sometimes up to 4 times a week. over an average month i would watch maybe 10-12 games & never had any probs..so i guess you with a 40gb allowance should have no problems...hope this helps

      Sky dont throttle any of its LLU packages (Max, Mid, Base).

      You should be fine with any form of P2P providing you have it setup correctly and the relevant ports are forwarded.
