      Sky Shop

      I've just got my MAC code so I'm getting ready to switch to Sky Max online ... onething concerned me, once I'd entered my MAC code, I go to a page to select the package and it said that I could expect speeds between 6.5MB and 8MB.

      Surely this is ADSL only, not ADSL2, which I'd get on Max? My Downstream Line Attenuation is 30.

      On MAX, they will give you the best connection your line can take, so if it predicts 6-8mb, that is their prediction.

      On the BT one, mine said 2.5 - 3.5mb and I get 7mb. Best to see what happens.

      Interesting ... its odd 6.5mbps is what I get on regular ADSL, I'd figure it would be more on ADSL2+ ... and with attenuation at 30, I figured it get ADSL2+.

      Time will tell I guess.
