    well if this is anything to go by; I am definitely jumping back to BT as soon as I can. (being able to use my own router is also a bit plus point).

    Shame as Sky's broadband (for me at least) has been pretty robust and stable connection speeds.

    adding some VPN service on top will work around such blocks... As long they don't block VPN ...

    Yep sky make it hard to use VPN - hence anther reason to leave em (for me anyways)

    They are the only ISP I know of that specifically states using a router/modem other than the one they supply is a violation in terms and they actually do cut people off for breeches.
