Thinking of switching to BT from SKY due to the cost difference and wondering if anyone can advise on the quality of BT service as heard a lot of bad stories a few years ago - frequent drop outs, etc

In Empire Square specifically

You can't get high speed in much of SE1, it's very frustrating. However, I found BT to be fairly reliable and didn't suffer many drop outs or slow downs.

BT broadband (as opposed to fibre) is reliable but slow. Speed can fluctuate wildly. That said, Sky would be the same as they use BT's infrastructure. If there's a cost saving then I'd switch. I'm actually looking at swapping the other way (BT to Sky) on the basis of cost, but that's because I use the phone a fair bit and I'm finding I'm spending almost 50 a month for everything with BT.

If you live in a cabled place the Virgin broadband is brilliant in speed terms, and pretty consistently so.

Virgin is not available so its a choice between sky and bt - I want to go for BT but just not sure about the quality
