My broadband is up for renewal and I've been looking around at different suppliers. now sky are estimating to giving me between 8-17mb. so I checked BT themselves and they only estimate between 4-8mb. how can sky say they will offer better speeds even though they are using a BT line? when I called sky up to query it they were surprised with difference and said maybe BT had a lot more customers on that network or something along those lines hence the difference. He told me if I get below 6mb then I can cancel without penalty.
The difference in cost to me is BT with £69 tcb and £100 reward Mastercard works out at approx £11.73 a month with free weekend calls. sky is approx £15.65 with £70 tcb plus £20 line install fee. now the speeds quoted worry me otherwise I'd go with BT so can anyone clarify what the actual truth may be. I'm currently with talktalk and just did a speed test and one site showed 8mb and another 7.5mb
