    Default Sky broadband.....any good?

    Just bought my first house and i'm gonna need Phone and broadband. I'm already with sky for TV so is it worth going to them for the rest too?

    Also is the Sky HD box reliable as i'm gonna take on Sky HD too

    think it all depends on your area John, I had SKY and was ok, just slow. BT's even worse. Hopefully getting VM in October if I can get fibre optic and a better speed.

    Spenny, kick VM's arse for me and get them to cable up Witchford if you can lol I'd jump back to VM for internet in a heartbeat if I could. Although I wouldn't touch VM's TV service with a barge pole.

    As it is I'm stuck with 0.6Mb most of the time (it peaked at 1.1Mb once) on Sky because it was cheap as I knew the line was crap and I'd get no better from anyone else on ADSL.
