Need to make a Google Spreadsheet with this information really. I am on TalkTalk, never had any issues with overall amount of data downloaded, but they throttle all traffic between 3pm and 12am.
post #3 of 28
I used to be on Sky connect had terrible throttling at peak times, now since upgrading to Sky Unlimited have had no throttling, and I am having amazing speeds, really pleased with sky, would recommend it too everyone who is a sky TV customer.

Also your missing Virgin media and orange.

O2 give you a free static IP with the top tier, and Sky lock you to their router, i.e no way of getting the username/pass with the new ones.

All I got for now.

There are tools online that will give you the password based on the MAC However Sky will know you are not using there router on their periodic checks and shut the connection down/throttle you down to nothing.

Also Sky dont allow you to run a VPN connection across their service either.

I really can't understand why the whole country isn't on BE

Up to 24mbps, choice of line bonding for up to 52Mbps (!) No capping, no throttling, less than 20 notes a month, and a customer service that other ISP's would kill for

I've got some new Sky router that has no tool for getting the user pass. Or at least didn't last month.
