      Issues on Max

      I know the thread is titles for Connect but....

      I've got two lines (one of which is with Sky Max) and I've noticed the throughput is sometimes (around peak times) hitting a constant ceiling of 360KB/s regardless of what I synch at. I've switched gateways using the same machine between my Sky connection and my non Sky conneciton and the Sky line is the only one that's doing this.

      The max I ever synch it is around 7Mbit and until the last few weeks has been fine. I've tried three routers, several PC's and various sources to download from (premium Usenet with 10 connections/FTP from reliable sources/multiple speed test sites and others).

      Weird...

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

      different issue so start your own thread and include how you're setup and if you use wireless, etc...

      No matter how fast I synch I'm getting stuck at a max throughput of 360KB/s with multiple Usenet connections and even lower with a single download/HTTP speedtest (usually around 120KB/s).

      Logged a call with Sky who are getting back to me after speaking to the CST.

      I only hardwire PC's and leave wireless for mobile devices only. All the usual checks/tests done, master socket, different router, different PC's etc. And a neighbour has recently told me he's suffering with a similar issue.
