[access-uk] Re: sky internet

Hi Husna

You could ask your phone provider how close you are to the exchange if you give them your postcode.

Regarding Virgin Media, as they now seem to be across the board, they don't support routers that you would need to use if you decide to run a network. We had that problem when it was Telewest. They supply a modem, but they don't offer router support. Whereas the ADSL suppliers like Sky give you a combined modem/router.

I hope this makes sense.

Jackie

Hi there

If I may put my 2 pence in here, I'm with BT and I regularly get between
five and six meg download. It could be down to the fact that I'm quite
close to the exchange.

All the information is subjective because all too often, people forget to
mention how close to the exchange they are when they are on ADSL, which I
am.

Yes indeed Billy. I get loads of stuff through the door now
exstolling the virtues of a Virgin opical connection. Thing is, the
speeds on offer don't seem that impressive at the moment, though they
make much of the fact the distance from the exchange doesn't matter.

Cheers,

From Ray

Hi Billy

I don't like capping either, but for a fiver a month, I can't see
even us
three using 40GB.

We have Telewest in our area, which is the equivalent. Haven't
looked
into their prices lately. I know with Sky that we need a BT
landline for
the ADSL service.

Jackie, don't you have Virgin Media in your area?.

I must admit it has been years since I first looked into Sky, and
that
time it was pretty expensive, and you had to have a BT line going
into
your home.
Don't you need such a BT line anymore?.

The only thing I don't like about Sky broadband, is the monthly
cap.
With Virgin Media there is no monthly capping,
Billy
