    Yes and no. It really galls me to give that crook Murdoch any of my money, but where I am it's okay and better than some of the other ISPs, even VM, who I used to be with and suffered dire speeds with in the evenings.

    I'm happy as I get my internet free thanks to lots of whingeing and stroppy letters about the Sky service offerings in general.

    Nae they are the best ISP I have ever had and I have been through the mill with a lot. No throttling and regularily get up to 1800KB/s on downloads and thats at peak times.
    Ric's connection is particularily bad at his house on any isp so its not skys fault.
    I would like to add speedtest is a pretty pants site for accurate rates. I prefer seeing screenshots of actual download windows from say a MS server as thats the stats that matter. The real data to disk is the point and speedtest.net has NEVER reflected accurately what I actually get on throughput based on real data I actually download at. I hold no weight in its ratings or scores as if you look at browolfs post you will see that the connection is 8mb (8128kbps) but speedtest.net reports the rate as 14521kbps so how exactly that is possible is beyond me.

    Here is a screenshot I took a while ago using getright from microsoft.com but I have seen it get up to 1800KB/s on megaupload mirrors using its manager (which although the accuracy has not been proven by me)

    This is on a Sky BB max syncing at 16379 kbps to the exchange.

    At work on the LEA 10M/bit (so I'm told) connection. Microwave to another school, which goes to a tower and then finally to a hard link.

    Not too bad really.
