      Fast

      I dont know if this has been posted before but anyway.

      I'm on pipex and have my MAC so i was thinking of moving to sky, I play fps games but dont really want to be on interleave. So I emailed sky and asked them.

      Thank you for your email regarding the connection you can expect if you choose to migrate to Sky Broadband. We only have interleaving on the Max package, Mid and Base are set to fast mode. I trust this information is useful to you.
      So i'd be best going for the mid package. I'm not sure if i'll go on sky just yet, i'm moving house soon and read it can get messy.

      Re: Fast

      When i had interleaving turned off i dropped approx 20ms, if you have high pings like the unlucky ones here its not going to help much.

      Pings

      To be honest i want to come over to sky eventually (my exchange is not going to be unbundled for at least 6 months) but the ping issues will have to be sorted before i make the move.

      Re: Fast

      you have to download details statistics and then view the file in notepad or something, it should say what mode you are on somewhere in there.

      And yes, i am on Max and online gaming is horrible.
