I have it to. Don't have any probs with it. Have to restart the router sometimes to get the net on the laptop but other than that it's fine. I've looked at other providers and I'm sure Sky is the cheapest for what you get too.

I used to work for Sky in the broadband company - and it does depend on where you are as to what sort of service you will get. But if you have direct access to their network - not via BT - and they are in most urban areas, then you will get good service.

I have virgin and it is great! In my area sky is poop!
I think it depends where you live.

late to the conversation but sky rocks.. port blocking, don't appear to be doing any nasty traffic shaping and in nearly 2 years I've had no downtime.. ..the router was even as easy to set up as they claimed.. ..completely pre-configured so just plug in and give your pcs the access key.. ..easy peasy..

Sky is great. Never drops connection and as long as you keep your broadband online and keep a constant line you will have no problems.

You should only disconnect if you are having problems or want to find a new IP address
