      Hi do as Smithy99 say`s and everything should be alright the connect package is no good for on line gaming at the moment. Yes Sky TV. In my view is the best
      unbeatable

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

      YES I'VE BEEN SLOWED DOWN TO 325kbps

      Broadband package: Sky Broadband Base
      Normal Speed: 1.4Mb
      MAX line Speed: **** 2Mb in my dreams
      Current throttled speed: Download Speed: 325 kbps / Upload Speed: 143 kbps
      Average usage per day: 500MB per week-ish
      What does this throttling affect?: Stupid question really... Everything
      Have sky replied to my complaints for the past 2 weeks: NO
      Have Sky ever said what the contention ratio is: NO
      Do changing Wireless channels make a difference: NO
      Will BT upgrade our exchange: Yes - sometime end of 2010
      Will sky edit this post: Yes

      It won't matter if they do, you are on base and so don't use BT's equipment.

      I doubt it, this is not Sky's forum, it is an unofficial forum as details in the heading, but if you would like help, start your own thread and post your stats.

      Sky do not currently throttle or traffic manage any of their LLU products which is what base is, although there is a usage limit on that package that you may be exceeding.

      Can you suggest a good ISP to use? The only ones suggested available in my area are BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk and Eclipse

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

      As you have no LLU providers then I'd recommend Plusnet or ADSL24.
