    Sky Internet / Phone Service ?

    About to set up Sky HD and contemplating their Internet and Phone services. Has anyone had any experience with the forementioned? Prices seem a bit too cheap to be getting exactly what they promise??

    I have the lot m8, Sky HD downstairs, Multiroom Sky Plus Upstairs,Top Broadband Package and free evening and weekend calls. The broadband on the top level is good because it is the only isp to offer a completely uncapped and ungoverned service (it was recently on watchdog, they proved that they are the only isp to not have a fair use policy on their top package). It claims to give you up to 16meg but we all know that that is dependant upon how far you are from the exchange, line quality yada yada yada. I also have all the channels switched on including movies sports and HD and this whole lot costs me a tad over £70 a month.

    Thats the only thing I haven't got is sky's line rental as when I switched to them they weren't offering that bit so I had to use bt instead just never got round to doing it since.

    Ive just got the lot recently aswell (apart from the HD stuff) Cant fault it.

    However, the only problem that i did have since i was a new customer was the set up time. I took just over a month from the time i brought the service to the time i had the broadband (the final thing) set up. It went

    TV >> 2 weeks >> Phone Line >>> 2 weeks >> broadband turned on >> 1 week >> router arriving

    Apart from that its such a good system, far better then anything else i had been using so far,

    I work for em so if you need to know anything drop me a pm. Where are you looking to have it set up? Oxford? If you haven't ordered it already let me know I might be able to sort you a better deal.
