      Hi but if Sky tell you the connect package is a stop gap before moving on to Sky`s own network and it will be only for about 3 months people are going to ask to be moved on to connect because it is only for 3 months. That is what I was told nearly 3yrs ago. Then to be told Sky had stopped unbundling for a short time. The only way forward for Sky is to unbundle as many exchanges as possible because. As Sky do now supply Broadband Telephone and line plus Sky TV and selling all as a combined package. Then there would not be many on the connect package.

      In an ideal world yes, they would unbundle all the exchanges. However given the lowish amount of users on my exchange it doesn't have a chance of being unbundled by Sky anytime soon. Be/o2 and C&W operate LLU from it.

      Yeh I had a look through some of the bills and he's paying 17pm for Connect...

      Hi If you do a Bt speed test the best thing to do is copy and paste the results to your next post. So we can see the results.The thing is the connect package is over subscribed and a lot of on line gamers on the connect package found it very difficult to play so have left. There are hundreds of posts about the connect package and the problems connect Customers were having. I have just had my exchange unbundled by Sky before that I was on the connect package for over 2yrs and the lowest speed I got was 1kbps.
      Download speedachieved during the test was - 127 Kbps
      For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
      Additional Information:
      Your DSL Connection Rate :7264 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 448 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP Profile for your line is - 6000 Kbps

      It's up slightly from the last time I checked in the evening. To be honest if this carries on I will ask about cancelling my "broadband".

      I would get your MAC now, Sky Connect has been this bad for 2 years and I doubt it will change any time soon.

      Hi have you done a Bt test through the Day or after 12 Midnight when there is no Traffic Management of peak times. just to see if there is any difference. But as Smithy say it has been really bad.

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

      To be honest Smithy I'm seriously considering it.

      Yea, I've checked it a few times this is the result now:

      Download speedachieved during the test was - 5452 Kbps
      For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 600-7150 Kbps.
      Additional Information:
      Your DSL Connection Rate :0 Kbps(DOWN-STREAM), 0 Kbps(UP-STREAM)
      IP Profile for your line is - 6000 Kbps

      As you can see it's a massive difference. I'm assuming I'm being capped then?

      Hi no you are not being capped. It is the Traffic Management the Throttling 4pm till Midnight all weekends bank holidays public holidays and School holidays. That is the problem. I thought it was suppose to be getting better more bandwidth. It does not look like it. The speed test proves the throttling I did this as a way to explain to Sky about the Throttling Steve's Sky Connect speedtest blog Just mainly Bt tests
