      It looks like they are shifting the speeds to anyone who threatens to leave maybe because Sky have more control now

      I think they have removed PSN from the P2P traffic profile, you would have thought a company as big as Sky whould not have needed to wait until the $hi* hit the fan before they realised what they had done.

      Although IANTE disagrees, I think this is probably connected to the change from using BT Centrals to IP Stream Connect. Although this happened a couple of weeks ago and did not immediately trigger problems, I believe this system gives Sky more control over the connection. It looks like they clamped down on P2P without realising the consequences for the PSN. I am surprised this did not effect other gamers using Xbox, or do they not use P2P?

      Xbox is not P2P like PSN, they have their own servers.

      If you meant "unlike PSN they have their own servers", that explains why they didn't have the problem, MS are not cheapskates like Sony.

      it's simply due to the PSN using P2P - and Connect killing that during peak hours...

      permanant fix going out next week (apparently) but shuld be ok now after opening up the bandwidth on P2P...
