Sky Broadband

Anybody out there got it? I'm ditching Virginmedia (Richard Branson, your product is crap, your customer services would be a joke if it actually existed, and you have been overcharging me for many months).

I don't have Virgin broadband, I have Orange, 2mg, but apparently you can't have two, one as an alternative to the other in case one goes wrong. Orange has been good, but wireless will cost me £19.99 a month (I pay £14.99 for the plug-in variety). Sky wireless broadband will cost me £5 a month for 8mg. For cable TV, an extra phone line I don't want, and a separate broadband package, I pay a total £46.50. For Sky TV and broadband, with free weekend and evening phone calls on my main phone line, I will pay £23. Seems like a good deal, but IS SKY BROADBAND OK?

Please help me decide.

we have SKY TV, but not the broadband package, but I believe it is good.

Hmm...can you google "sky broadband customer reviews" or "customer complaints" and see if there is any feedback out there from the public?

Sadly, I have Virgin Broadband, and the blogging world isn't big enough for me to tell all the tales of woe. We also have their cable TV and phone, which means I can't switch to Sky Broadband, (although I have Sky TV too) because that needs a BT Line...but BT calls are a LOT more expensive than Virgin, and we had the same amount of trouble with BT - which is why we blew them out in the end.
I think the answer is for us all to move to Paris, where I gather the French have something like 17mgb damn-near instantaneous Broadband for a fraction of what we pay in the UK; unusual that isn't it? The Brits being ripped off....

I have Tiscali Broadband and phone,think it averages about £30 a month for 7mgb broadband and free evening and weekend calls,including line rental.Funnily enough we had a rep from Virgin round yesterday,pointed out that I was paying too much having them seperate,he was politely told where to go.Tiscali has always been good to me,and their customer service is pretty reliable too.

I use BT for my phone and Broadband, but I get free national calls 24/7 and a discount on the mobile I call most. In truth I don't know how much I pay... I don't think it's cheap, but it's been reliable, so I'm reluctant to move just to save a few bob
