      Hi, an LLU or LOCAL LOOP UNBUNDLING does support ASDL ,but in Skys case it is only offered on its Max package. Connect, Base and Mid support GDMT which in itself is fine and in some cases can offer better line stability than ASDL. On your Connect package which is a rebranded BT product not using LLU does come with up to 8 mb download speeds according to your connection and line attentuation. Post some statistics (follow the links in this forum) and someone may be able to help

      Re: Different Lines

      Don't quite follow what you mean. LLU is ADSL there is no difference. LLU just means that the DSLAM you are connected to in the exchange is owned by an ISP and not BT. The speed you will get depends largely on your phone line. If you opt for MID the speed you get will be much the same. If you go for MAX, which can use ADSL2+ if your line supports it, your speed could be doubled. As suggested post your stats and someone will give you an idea what to expect.

      Re: Different Lines

      If it is available with Sky and you are on Sky Connect at the moment, you will be switched over automatically. ADSL2+, with Sky(MAX), is capable of up to 16MB, normal ADSL (with Mid) up to 8MB.

      There is no need to experiment so much with the Caps key

      Re: Different Lines

      No its not available on my exchange, all thats available is Sky Connect so i would have to go to another provider like BE which does provide a LLU service wth my BT exchange or go back to Virgin media as my cable was a lot more stable than this one for downloading u torrent etc

      Cheers Paul

      Re: Different Lines

      Yes, being throttled, Connect is a poor choice for a P2Per or torrenter. You would be much better of with an LLU provider, like BE. I did hear that Virgin was doing a bit of throttling too, although that may not be true.
