BT Infinity or Sky Fibre for a VPN user


[link to this post]
 
I work from home using a VPN connection to the office and I'm looking to get either BT Infinity 2 or Sky Fibre Unlimited. I was wondering if anyone could recommend if either of these are better with a VPN?

By its very nature VPN traffic is "hidden" from the ISP so the VPN traffic should not make any difference to the choice.

Of course both BT and SKY will have a "small" amount of VPN traffic used to hide P2P usage. SKY allow P2P without shaping, BT do not.

But at price, availability and make a choice. If you are already on SKY it seems logical to stay with them, same is probably true with BT.

Horses for courses.

Ex <n>ildram , been to SKY MAX - 15,225 Download
BE Unlimited - 21,000 Download 1,200 Upload ON THE LINE THAT SKY COULD ONLY PROVIDE 15,255 DOWN AND 800 UP ON!!!,
Moved house, now BE Unlimited 6,500 Down, 1Mb/s up - gutted!
FTTC Cab installation commenced 12th April - expect full 80 / 20 - bye bye BE, hello BT Infinity, install date Friday 10th August!

I work from home occasionally and the company I work for use Cisco AnyConnect which works fine over Sky fibre. Previously we used a setup from Juniper which was fine on Sky Broadband but on Sky Fibre it started to drop the connection quite a bit.

Use of Sky for any commercial or business purpose is NOT permitted.

So, you have a choice of one.

I doubt that client vpn would come under business or commercial.

Irrelavent ... in the opening post, it is stated:
I work from home using a VPN connection to the office

That is business use.

Might be worth checking with them. Be say the same thing in their T&C but don't count 'working from home'.

Not according to many ISPs. It needs clarification but to many ISPs if you work for a large corporate and then work from home that is "home use" but if you run a small business from your home address that is "business use."

I know LOADS of people who home work using Sky as their ISP.
