    Sky Broadband

    Is Sky broadband any good?

    Mother is thinking about moving from Talktalk to sky.

    Purely to get the Sky+, Sky broadband and Sky Talk offer.

    It's crap.

    been with them on the unlimited package for 6 months and not got a complaint. Havn't had any warnings about the amount of usage and have suffered no drops in speed at peak times etc.

    Cheers, Will give them a call and see what they can offer...

    Had sky BB unlimited for almost 2 years and its been faultless no issues at all

    I've been with them for 3 years, no issues whatsoever...

    For LLU amazing, for standard bt wholesale bad like most other isps.

    I should have got 6meg but only got 1meg with Sky. I get 4meg with o2 same line

    It's always been ok for me. Ive not had any problem with it.

    i have had sky broadband for last 4years and its all good
    fast speeds no probs downloading as much as you will
    so 10/10 from me

    ps .. and no i do not work for sky lol

    make sure you are is a cheap sky area, because where I live, they tried to give me sky access which hoofs the price right up

    LLU product is fine... the connect is crap.. (which im on- but not for much longer!)

    I think all broadband is the same, one is better than the other but you will never find out which one until you try it! And it is too late then. I use sky and have had no issues at all other than the fact that it used to be free and they are now charging me for it!!

    Sky Connect is rubbish.

    Sky BB (LLU) is fine, but it all depends on your area. Make sure theres a Sky installed at your exchange. Use SamKnows.com to search for your local exchange.

    Had Sky BB for over 2 years now and can't complain at all about it. Any time I have had any issues their tech support have been fairly decent (much better than the monkeys at BT). Get pretty much full bandwidth all the time and never once had any notice about the amount i download, which has ben a lot in the past.

    I've had Sky BB for 6 months, Around a constant 1.6 mb on my max 2 mb line, Was with BT before and Sky have been better than them so far, I can guarantee they'll be better than TalkTalk..!!! Who are pretty cack imo.

    Gonna reluctantly switch to Virgin Media and suffer peak bandwidth restrictions at the end of my contract, Just for broadband though.

    Personally if I had a choice I'd go with 02 or Be as they are generally highly recommended.

    However Sky have been ok so far.

    16mb package couple of years ago with Sky - never achieved anywhere near that speed - max I got was 6mb, and they had many issues with speed variation.

    Same package with O2, same phone line etc, I now get 15mb.

    That's why they're crap.
