      Re: my upload speed!

      I needed to reboot both my BTO Modem and Sky Router to get the new rate out of my line..............................

      I had the same as you though, 40mb down 20mb up, reboot then it went to 71mb/20mb

      What was your quoted speed by sky? If you couldn't get more than 40 but your upload was the only thing that increased then your pro has kicked in. If not you may want to reboot your modem and router and see if that increases your sync rate to pro levels.

      Re: my upload speed!

      I was always quoted up to 2MB for upload for both standard and pro fibre.
      I rang sky and they said that the reason that download speed hasnt kicked in yet is because of DLM and that started today.

      what I dont want to do is reboot both the modems and then it syncs to a lower speed...

      rebooting your modem and router once *shouldn't* harm your speed. others have have to reset both to attain the new speed

      hmmm ok if I download a large file, it drops to around 2/3MB/s constant - pretty much like my old package (40/2)
