      I would expect there to be a significant problem now as the schools are on holiday and as the Easter weekend looks like to be a washout I would expect some hammering on the internet from now until the schools go back.

      Re: Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      Thats the current loadings on the Entenet Systems, which use BTs Stuff, so id say BTs are very similar



      Left being 21cn right being 20cn

      Steve, it might not be your exchange, it may infact be the central that your going threw possibly one above?

      Re: Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      Afternoon all,

      Just popping by to see how things are in the land of SkyConnect

      andyconnect1
      I'm on Rochford exchange as well, but I am now on Be (O2) LLU Unlimited package. No more getting p1$$ed off between 1700-0000 anymore for me

      Cannings
      I found that all ports were blocked apart from 80 during the capping period, and I wasn't even abusing the usage limits!

      Lucky for me my contract ended and I requested my MAC code. Within a week, I was up and running with Be enjoying the internet as I am entitled to

      (My posts are in this thread, just search for them)


      Here's a couple of speedtests to show what I am getting while the Sky caps are in place:



      Sky User Broadband Speed Test
      We have detected that your ISP is Be - Your current download speed is 19544Kbps, and your current upload speed is 1050Kbps.
      Your most recent test results
      Test taken
      (up to) Download Speed (Kbps) Upload Speed (Kbps)
      09 April, 2009 18:17:03 19544 Kbps 1050 Kbps
      10 February, 2009 20:19:44 416 Kbps 348 Kbps
      10 February, 2009 20:11:41 352 Kbps 339 Kbps
      (10 Feb I was still with Sky)

      Speeds vary due to the speedtests/networks/routing/etc.

      Was hoping I would see some changes by Sky when popping back into forum, but sadly still seeing people with problems

      All the best guys.

      Were Sky not on LLU? Seems funny to have O2 there and not Sky...

      Still, all's well that ends well...

      Re: Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      Nah, Sky LLU not available in Rochford, only Be (O2), Orange and TalkTalk (CarPhoneWarehouse). Heard good things from mates who are with Be, and only 1 month contracts (3 month notice). Wouldnt be so bad if Sky did have LLU, at least I'd be in a bargaining position when renewing contracts as I have phone and tv with them as well.

      LoL!!! Just checked again and even AOL has LLU here!

      Re: Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down?

      Where my parents live is O2 LLU and Sky say they have no plans going into that exchange.

      I think they have moved the focus away from Broadband onto Sky Talk.

      Hi Gazz have to thank you for your great work in my eyes the more posts that are written the more chance sky will take note
      stealthy Pleased everything is going A OK good luck for the future
      andyconnect1Canningsyou will find that stealthy is giving good information
      Undecided Adrian
      think you could be right But they have to come back to LLU or they will find a lot Exchanges with LLU and Sky Not considered
      Unexpected result received when querying the network to find your services connection details. Please try again shortly, but if this problem persists raise the issue with your service provider.
      I think we are being led astray after several times to run test with Bt Performance
      and then receiving the test results we expect I think Sky and Bt are working together otherwise they would not have been a problem not being able to run test because being busy would have came back as such I can say more but will wait to the appropriate time
      01:25 began
      Test1 comprises of Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
      Your DSL connection rate: 4064 kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP profile for your line is - 3500 kbps
      Actual IP throughput achieved during the test was - 3260 kbps
      01:45 When finished Bt test 10/04/09 The only thing I can say is the Bt test is wrong or fixed
