      Adsl2

      I'm not with Sky Broadband at the moment (currently on PlusNet), but looking at the checker on Sky's site they claim I can get up to 7Mbps on Max.

      Does the checker include the possibility of ADSL2 or is it just telling me what I'd get with regular ADSL?

      I've got an ADSL2+ router (DrayTek 2700V) and it would be nice to use that (obviously I understand this is in breach of T&Cs, but there are features I want to keep in the DrayTek).

      My exchange (Woking) is apparently Sky/Easynet LLU enabled. Would this indicate it can support ADSL2 and would I automatically be connected to the LLU or is there a chance I'd get connected via BT?

      If technically I can get ADSL2, is there any special way of applying for it or do I just apply and it's luck whether I get it? Also is the standard free router from Sky ADSL2+ or do they use a different router?

      Sorry for all the questions

      Cheers.

      Re: Adsl2

      If your exchange is enabled, then theoretically if you order Base Mid or Max, you will receive an LLU enabled service.

      As for speeds, unknown until you are connected. Mine showed approx 3.5mb but I get close to 7mb.

      Moved to correct forum.

      Re: Adsl2

      Does your existing connection with another ISP have any bearing on this? i.e. on PlusNet I'm connected via BT rather than LLU.

      It doesn't make any difference, ask Plusnet for your MAC and pass this on when you book Sky.
