      Moving home question

      I haven't got Sky Broadband yet but lets say if I do get it and move home a couple of months down the line and still be close to the same exchange I was connected to, will I have any problems with like being on the same package like MAX or will I be downgraded to Mid?

      Hi

      Your speed all depends on your distance from the exchange and line quality.

      So theoretically if you were two miles from the exchange now and moved to a new house one mile from, you should expect to see a speed increase or vice versa.

      As for staying on MAX, that all depends how busy your exchange is and how many people are waiting.

      Are you expecting to move very soon?

      Re: Moving home question

      I'm planning to move in about one year and the distance should be closer to the exchange.

      Its just that I've read in some forum posts that Sky need to cancel your BB when you move so if I was put on MAX now and capacity was low on my exchange would I be put on Mid until there is capacity for Sky to put be back on MAX or if they don't cancel my BB account when I move will I still be on MAX since I'll be on the same exchange?

      Re: Moving home question

      I would imagine that the difference between Mid/Max etc is just a software setting on the exchange. So as long as there is a port available on the Sky equipment in the exchange then you should be Ok. It would be nice if Sky keeped that port available for you if you were moving house within the exchange area rather than making you wait at the back of the que if there was one.
      Dont bank on it though. lol.
