      There would be no point now.. haha

      Dear Mr Griffiths,
      Thank you for contacting Sky Broadband Technical Support.

      I am sorry for the confusion in previous emails. Sky does not offer Fastpath as an option for your line configuration. The advisor who arranged for this to be done should not have done so and we will be looking into this, and as such, I have arranged for your line to be placed back on Interleaved setting.
      Think I might switch to BEThere when I have the time..

      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      Has anyone actually managed to get through via email successfully, or have you always had to resort to telephone?

      Seems odd they don't offer this more transparently (e.g. via their portal), but I suppose it is simplified to the extent that power users are excluded from even using their own routers :-/

      Re: pings on sky broadband, high or low

      Hi All,

      Last few days have been suffering with timeouts. Looks like really high ping rates. As suggested on this thread, I have pinged bbc.co.uk and had the following stats

      PING 212.58.251.195 (212.58.251.195): 56 data bytes
      64 bytes from 212.58.251.195: icmp_seq=0 ttl=122 time=530.0 ms
      64 bytes from 212.58.251.195: icmp_seq=1 ttl=122 time=540.0 ms
      64 bytes from 212.58.251.195: icmp_seq=2 ttl=122 time=550.0 ms
      64 bytes from 212.58.251.195: icmp_seq=3 ttl=122 time=570.0 ms

      --- 212.58.251.195 ping statistics ---
      4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
      round-trip min/avg/max = 530.0/547.5/570.0 ms

      Has anyone a view on this? Can post more stats of required
