FTTC Providers


[link to this post]
 
My exchange is due to be upgraded at the end of June. My question is, sky 80/20 or BT Infinity 80/20?
I am currently a sky customer and to be honest, had a few issues with speed.
But I'm stuck between them both as sky have a unlimited usage and no throttling where as BT throttle P2P. However, they allow to use any router and seem to get the benefits and upgrades before other ISP's.
Any views would be good and thanks in advance.

There are lots of ways around BT's throttling, i believe....

uTorrent on Mac seems to "get around" the throttling out of the box.

I find it hit and miss, on uTorrent on Mac. I'm guessing it works on network capacity, quieter it is the less the throttling kicks in.

I gave on torrents years ago... Usenet i get close to 10MB/sec all the time

There are rumours that sky will be letting you use any router on the 80/20 product according to skyuser.co.uk

Just out of interest why are you limiting yourself to choosing one of these two?

Quite agree and not limiting yourself to the worst customer support known to man, there are others.
