Sky's growth over the last year has been pretty astounding.
That would make them the third largest ISP after BT & Virgin, I believe.

Think I might prefer Sky if I were aTtiscali customer as Tiscali is pretty dire from what I hear.
This has been on the table for months as the HQ in Italy is not happy with the amount of profit the UK operation is making.

Can't see many people mourning the potential death of Tiscali (from what I've read).
I'd be impressed if Sky manage anything better, given how arrogant they are now.

Re: Tiscalli selling out to BSkyB ??

Tiscali's recent attempts to migrate Pipex email to a new platform was a fiasco.
Having worked very closely with Pipex for several years I got my mac the day Tiscali was announced as the intended buyer - Friday 13th - and migrated to Plusnet.
As my exchange has Tiscali LLU I wonder what my connection would now be like compared to my trouble free Plusnet connection.

To borrow part of a phrase used by a high street optician
"should've gone to Plusnet"

Re: Tiscalli selling out to BSkyB ??

me neother (was a namesco customer before) they were ok but their pipes to plusnet used to get clogged with traffic in the evenings and so stuff slowed.
So I thought PN are cheaper and I'll cut out a couple of routers by connecting directly to PN's network and getting my mitts on some lovely, well managed bandwidth from a few Tier 1 backbone providers.
