Re: UK ISP rule 1 ...

Sky's current router doesn't allow you to use bridge mode - I recently upgraded and received the new router, checked it out and got a second hand Huawei HG612 off eBay as it was the cheapest way to get a fully-featured VDSL modem/router while allowing me to use my existing firewall/IPS/wifi.

I realize the HG612 is end of life and unable to get firmware updates, but for ~£20 delivered it provides full stats and compatability to allow you to troubleshoot VDSL speed issues.
