skilty who are you with now?


Switching over to Sky on their Sky Fibre Pro Unlimited package on the 16th April. Normally £30 a month but I got it for £17.50 a month for 10 months on a 12 month contract.

If I don't find it any better than plusnet then I will head over to Zen but from what I can tell my issues are with plusnet and not the copper to the cab.

There were a few other things that plusnet did, like £160 to move the master socket (absolutely fine) but I was specific and said I wanted the cable from pole to house replaced as they would have to join it etc. That didn't happen. Sales guy told me £6 odd per month if I left my contract early, actually it is over £14 a month.

Just seems like plusnet are reverting back to the company they were a few years a go. But that is my opinion and other people are absolutely fine with them.

They are subject to the same Court Orders as BT, and also apparently implement the IWF list.

As far as I am aware they do not throttle anything at all.

Regarding blocking I believe it is those websites etc where there is a court order but I could be wrong.

Linky.

Only an inhouse forum, but I would expect it to be correct.

Yep, there is no traffic management on BT, Sky or TalkTalk.

I was reasonably happy withBT, and now a bit happier with PlusNet. There do seem to have been quite a few issues with PlusNet recently, but I think still working well for most of their customers. Despite those issues they remain highest of the lower priced ISPs on the Thuikbroadband survey.

Recently moved from BT Infinity 2 to PlusNet. Very happy so far.
