      Looks like I could be one of SKY's shortest term customers also.

      Usually get 5mb average anytime of day for the past 2 years. First evening with Sky, and speeds drop to 1.2 mb. Really not happy, as I was assured that my speeds would be identical as with my previous provider. Curious that during the day, the speed is slightly higher than I have got historically.

      Cant get the BT tester to work for some reason? Keeps getting

      the user name you need is the 8 digit? mac code on the bottom of the sky router itll be like 005ER7FCD then you add @skydsl

      So for example its then: 005ER7FCD@skydsl

      Someone might be able to give more information on above. If you have records of times and dates they Sky have to help

      Thanks guys - was using the MAC address (without : ) from my routers setup page, whereas the MAC address on the bottom is one digit different. Anyway working now.

      However, Like many others my daytime speed is reducing drastically in the evening.

      Spoke to SKY support who have sent me a new router in the post - Why it only decides to go slow after 6pm is a mystery . Also noticed on my Router Statistics that the Downstream db was 0db up to 4 db and sometimes showed a very strange 2,145,786,987 db's. That threw the techie somewhat. I have managed to make them promise/log that I can Cancel the agreement outside the 8 days condition, as long as they cant resolve the issue.

      My line and connection at this property has been "Rock Solid" for 2 years, and the day SKY provide the service I get this rubbish. Only wish I had found this site 2 days before signing up to SKY rather than 2 days afterwards

      It's a connect problem and they wont sort it. A new router wont help either.

      You should try to sort your line out as you have noise on it and this will affect any ISP you move to, but move you will, if you want it better than it is anyway.

      Unfortunately this means changing the username in the router, which with Sky's locked down system, you can't do.
      It would be possible if you are using your own router.

      Thanks Tom. Sky agents seem to have sold a lot of connect to Customers lately
      even though it is overcrowded. What I don`t understand is if a Customer of Sky Tv, or not even a Sky user. But awaiting for Sky to ring to tell them that they can now offer Sky BB. A product called Sky connect max and if its their first ISP new to the internet not knowing or informed about connect Traffic Management I wonder if that is against any selling regulation
