  cyboard 20:41 31 May 2008

Hi i have just tried cancelling AOL because i am thinking of joining sky's 16 Mb broadband but the guy from AOL told me that the maximum that a bt line can hold is only 5Mb is this true?.

Many Thanks

Depends on the type of broadband and (if it's ADSL) your distance from the exchange. click here

AOL as far as I'm concerned tell a pack of lies, we need to see your line stats. What router or modem do you have???

In any case you will do well with Sky in fairness.

I am with sky and receive about 3.5 MB I have had no problems with them and is a good service. The spede will reduce with distance but i think you will average about 3-4 Mb
