Re: sky-dsl

will be needed ).

Re: sky-dsl

uuuuuuuu ...watch out. The THEORETICAL speed they give you is maybe 15mbits which is ok. However during congestion they guarantee only a 50th of that (read = download speed of about 30kb - cannot even load an internet site).

I personally have used sky dsl and the speed was usually 12kb (unusuable). When I called them they said read the contract -> which is what I did so "your speed / 50" is what you get. And that is almost every evening, effeminately Friday and the whole weekend. So their service is basically not usuable.

I have since canceled their service - obviously - and just got a 4G Modem with a simcard and antenna, you should be able to do this virtually anywhere (minus the ocean and rural australia / africa etc.)
