sky broadband - any improvement?

  kiz 12:49 30 Dec 2006

I have a friend who is going to get broadband for the first time and he is considering Sky but I have read a lot of negative posts about this service. As it is his first intro into the wonderful world of the internet (I know, where has he been all this time!!) I dont want it to be soured by hassles. I realise that some of the complaints were due to teething problems with a new service and of course he isnt migrating to it, so I would like to know if it has improved enough for me to recommend it and for him to have a seamless connection (if there is such a guarentee).
All comments welcome

I've had there mid range 8mb package for about four month and have never had a problem. I switched from Tiscali with whomw I just had one problem after another. Stayed with them for four years though ;~O.

For what it is worth my daughter, and my grandson, both have Sky Broadband packages and both work very well. In each case the transfer from BT was seamless and they are enjoying excellent service.
