My line actuuation is 25dB and i get around 19meg on the default 7dB margin, pings aren't the best, i get around 5ms more than i got with fast path on previous ISP. Speeds are always fine

Gaming is fine, never had any issues, p2p also unthrottled and always full speeds, Should be no problems with 150GB a month, reports of users near 1TB a month and no problems.

Yeap you can tweak it lower yourself if your router supports it, just make sure you ring up and get the Gaming Profile enabled (this turns DLM sync lock off)

Worth noting that the Sky T&C do not allow the use of your own router, and the latest firmware on the latest router does not have a method to extract the ADSL user/pass.

Why? Are you inside a minimum term with Vivaciti?

Who do you pay your telephone line rental to? If it's BT or a BT Wholesale provider (e.g. Post Office) then there is no charge to migrate to Sky.

Note you are migrating, not ceasing.
