Sky Broadband Unlimited and Anytime+


[link to this post]
 
Anyone able to give an appraisal of these services?

Is the Unlimited package truly unlimited?

I've been happy with O2 but considering switching to take advantage of Anytime+

I went from O2 Home Broadband Premium to Sky Broadband Unlimited 8 months ago. To be honest I notice very little difference in quality between the two, both very good services. Sky Broadband Unlimited is completely unlimited, it doesn't even have a FUP. You have to use their router though, unless you investigate alternative methods which technically do breach the T&C.

I moved from O2 to Sky back in March, my d/load speed did drop from 1.5mb to 1.2 mb, but considering I am paying less than half of what I was for my internet, I am a happy bunny.

Talktalk has unlimited usage too. It does have traffic management though which may or may affect users depending what they're in to.

Well yes i suppose but that's why i put no quibbles meaning truly unlimited wont slow ya down dont care how much you download and so on.
As another poster says no any time + with out sky BB although owning anytime+ im going to say its not that good TBH ive had it about 5 month now and ive used it about 8 times i used to have virgin TV and although skys TV is better for more chanels + HD virgins on demand its 10000x better than anytime+.

I was initially excited about Anytime+, but my 7km lines limits my unlimited service to 1.5Mbps and makes Anytime+ far too frustrating for me to use.

BT just installed a FTTC cabinet adjacent to my PCP, set to go live in a couple of weeks. Whilst I would love to stick with Sky and get a connection fast enough to use Anytime+, they've not announced any plans to launch a fibre-based service. As a result I'm planning to swap my 1.5Mbps connection for 40Mbps and accept that I'll lose Anytime+.

I'm sure Anytime+ is great for anyone getting 4Mbps+

There was talk (although there's often 'talk' from the likes of Sky and BE, which never results in actual products) of Sky starting Anytime+ only for those on Sky broadband products, but later releasing it to anyone with a fast enough connection.
Wish I could find the link frown

I hope they do this as Anytime+ should be great over a 40Mbps FTTC connection.
