      Hey NoXioUs,

      I've spoken to them a couple of times and they say they can't / won't put me on fastpath.

      Is that true? Has anyone (recently, maybe they've changed their policy) been put on fastpath

      thanks.

      I also wish to know if anyone on max can get put on fastpath - ive rang several times and they say same thing - "we could put you on fastpath but regular checks are made to make sure everyone is interleaved so it would be a waste of time"

      That's curious. Why would they need to make regular checks?

      In my own case I was set up on Fast back in August and am still on Fast. If you look at various threads where new users are posting their extended router stats, you'll see that quite a number are also currently being set up on Fast. I suspect it's luck of the draw and either exchange equipment dependent (if I recall correctly Sky use two different manufacturers) or down to the individual engineer i.e. a training inconsistency.

      Sky do come up with some strange statements.

      I'll try and ring through again though it takes more than 40 minutes of being put on hold usually. Any tips on what to say/ask for?

      Without being put on Fastpath, I can't play games and would seriously want to change ISP, tbh.

      I was promised with "upto 16mb" (was on a very reliable 1mb) and I have a very unstable 1.5mb, with 3 times the ping. Pretty pants, if you ask me.

      what do you need to look at in the router to see a change in interleaving to fastpath ?
