Sorry if this is not in the right place - I've not used the forums in a long time.
I was thinking of moving from Plusnet to Sky as I am really getting sick of the "unlimited" broadband from Plusnet which actually has a datacap limit on it. Is this also the case with Sky or is it truly uncapped?
I'm a heavy user at the moment as I use Dropbox and FTP quite a bit with work on weekends and evening. This can see me sometimes use up to 1gb - 2gb a day in file transfers outside of my usual usage.
I game quite a bit too, so latency is very important to me, as well as the ability to download the latest updates and new games through the Steam service (amongst others).
I am already a Sky+ customer and the girlfriend has discovered Sky+ Anytime on the laptop so needless to say I need more data allowance and quick!
So, in summary, my main questions are:
- Is Sky Broadband Unlimited really unlimited?
- Is Sky Broadband Unlimited traffic shaped (i.e. it doesn't block obscure ports such as 3784 (Ventrillo Voice Comms)
- Is Sky Broadband Unlimited good for gamers?

Thanks in advance for the help.
