    I'd rather they didn't implement a 10Mb to 20Mb upgrade and started adding binary newsgroups again.

    Also it's appalling they can just drop channels like that and not offer any get out clause - I got cable last May for Kerrang, MTV2, Sky1, E4 and FilmFour. I don't watch music enough to justify it, E4 and FilmFour went to freeview and now I lose Sky one, all in a year and with no option to leave until May this year.

    I'll miss Sky Sports News ... but I have become bored of Sky|One recently ... nothing I really want to watch and I would rather just go through my boxsets of things, or watch whole seasons from Virgin Central.

    Re: Sky & Virgin

    From what I understand, Virgin Central offers no more than you get with the top package's on demand stuff.

    According to the Virgin Newsgroups.

    So as I'll be looking at ditching cable and hence moving ISPs, does anyone mind if I start a thread where people can ask/answer questions on what other ISPs offer? In both terms of speed, cost and included newsgroups?
