I've had a look at Sky and can't figure out where you get phone/broadband without buying into sky TV too!

Been with Virgin Media/Blueyonder for six years now with their cable internet access.
I've only had one problem in those six years and i've always found their speed to be 100% accurate.
I would happily to recommend them!
Bare in mind they do throttle internet speed after you download x amount of data.

Removing the face plate (bottom half) is permitted, and if wired correctly, all extensions should be connected to the connections at the rear of the same face plate. That is where you check that the Bell Wire is not connected.

Sorry, I should have been more explicit: removing the faceplate to test the line with the engineer's socket is generally accepted, but tampering is not. The article linked advocates re-wiring it, which is (probably) illegal, and certainly will result in a bill from BT if they ever find out.

When I brought my place I had to activate my BT Line..........the engineer came and did his bits and changed the entire socket over with there new BT Openreach one, its one of them removable ones, I brought my self a ADSLNation XTE-2005 to replace it! works wonders

Im a VirginMedia Convert, after years of struggling with poor BT ADSL lines I switched and never looked back.
I still have the BT Phone line but run 6 SIP Trunks and two home based businesses over the 10mb VM cable (there goes the AUP)..... all for £20 per month
Maybe I've been lucky but no technical issues in the last 2 years.
