Seeing that there are very few posts in the Sky thread , can I take it that they are now OK to sign up to .

i moved 3 weeks ago no major problems as yet
although was only connected at 8mb on a 16mb max package, a few calls to customer service who said BT advised them that my line couldnt handle more than 3mb
sky agreed i was very stable at 8mb and getting around 6,5 -7mb was upgraded to adsl2+ now sync at 16mb and speedtest results give 14mb constant, routers work better wired rather than wireless, but for £10 per month no more problems than any other isp look at www.skyuser.co.uk forums for more info on skybroadband issues

I've beem on max now for about a year, and I've hardly had any issues unlike my previous ISP, and for £10 for a 16Mb connection which seems to have a HUGE Allowance of Approx 250-300GB (Rumoured FUP) Per Month

How are they for multiplayer? I'm thinking of going with Sky myself when I move in the coming months.

initially the ping is quite high but if you email them and ask to have the interleave max delay lowered to 8ms as you are a gamer then it should be ok :)
