      hello chaps,

      well, after much sky baiting, offers of reduced subs and compensation from sky (it does help if you're a shareholder, nothing like a bit of additional leverage) we have a small success.

      after Sky sent a BT engineer out, turns out the original BT engineer that re-activated the line back in Jan had done a job equivalent to that of a small blind child. And what do you know, some trickery at the CAB, the BT pairs into the property and the faceplate itself, up pops my sync to 6meg, getting 5meg throput at the mo.

      What a result. The throttling however, is still an issue. I agree with a few on here that is isnt as bad as it has been and unfortunately I've come to the conclusion you just have to accept it as one of those things.

      cheers chaps,

      p

      My alleged shorter line did not help one iota when on Connect. Why should it help now? The line has not been altered since migrating.
