      Will i get double my current mid speed on max?

      Hi all, have just joined skyuser and have already found loads of useful information! Although i have a question regarding potential speed increase.

      I am currently on the mid package and am synching around 4000kbps depending on the time of day, will i get double the speed on the max product or is the mid package just throttled back to 8Mb for those lucky enough to live close enough to the exchange to get a good sync speed?

      Thanks, Gareth.

      Mid and MAX use the same technology so if only getting 4mb now, changing to MAX will not make your downloads any faster, but your uploads would be faster.

      And of course you have the benefit of an unofficial cap of 250gb
