      Projected DL Speed

      Hi,

      QQ I am considering upgrading from Sky Fibre Unlimited to Sky Fibre Max.

      I live about a mile from the exchange and the speed-checker records DL speeds of between 28-33 Mbps depending on time of day.

      Given that my DL speeds are less than the average (and of course max) speed associated with my current package - what might I expect from upgrading? I can conceive of two possibilities:

      1. Sky Fibre Max would make no difference - my line has maxed out at 28-33 Mbps and so would see no benefit from moving to the higher theoretical max line speed of the Fibre Max package
      2. As I get ~84% of the max line speed of my current package, then I would expect a similar % of the max speed of the Fibre Max package (i.e. ~64 Mbps)

      Hope the above options make sense! I asked this question of an adviser in the Sky call centre and they were unable to aswer

      Many thanks

      You need to use the BT wholesale checker. Go to the link below and choose the address checker link.
      It is the most reliable and up to date source we can use to determine your estimated capable speed.

      If you are unable to max out unlimited, you are unlikely to see any improvement with Max.
