Don't Wish For Worse
Having already jumped ship from Tiscali earlier this year to Sky Broadband, all I can say to anyone hoping for a sky takeover is don't!
Sky is dire.
It is undoubtedly the worst mistake I have ever made in connection with internet suppliers and will be looking to migrate away again as soon as I possibly can.
I have a great long list of complaints against sky but the major one for me is the fact you can only connect to sky broadband with a sky router, that they preset with all your required settings before sending it out to you. They won't tell you what these settings are so you can't use your own existing router whilst waiting for the dolts to actually send you a router, which in my case took three weeks after being connected because they hadn't got any in stock.
Also all of Sky's email is handled through googlemail too, so be warned if you don't want to be part of the google world domination machine.
