      All the surrounding areas have been unbundled except for us, and we are due soon. Just wondering if we have been unbundled.

      I agree, thought it could'nt be true. Did a test this morning and it got up to 218 mb/s.
      What's going on?!

      Hi if you really want to know what speed you are getting then because you are on connect do the Bt speed test http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...ed-tester.html

      Re: super speed on sky connect

      ok thanks steve, so frustrating, we are the only town in the area still waiting for unbundling.
      Still cheaper than bt tho at ten quid a month ( connect). They dropped the price from 17! I was paying 45 a month for bt for broadband and calls, and still owed about 50 pounds every 3 months - with minimum phone use, mainly local.

      Hi yes sounds really annoying I noticed at your exchange that you have a couple of ISPs providing LLU one is Talktalk Build your own broadband and phone package with TalkTalk If everything does go wrong then you still have Talktalk LLU which you could be worth look at.

      Hi Steve, yes we have talk talk, aol, orange but i signed up to connect before i understood what LLU was all about. I am signed in now for 12 months with sky. Hopefully we will have unbundling this year but if not i can shop around at the end of the contract.

      Hi I thought I would let you know about the ISPs with LLU at your exchange. So that if the connect package gets really bad that you cannot use it. Then you have an ISP with LLU. Out of the 3 Talktalk is the best for LLU

      Re: super speed on sky connect

      Talk talk approached me in asda(!) and tried to get me to sign up. I said that my contract had only just started with sky but they said it costs only 65 pounds to break a contract. He didnt sound convincing.
      I have heard that sky can charge you how many months is left X the charge.
      Because i work shifts i do most downloads( music, iplayer) in the morning which is fine on connect.
