      Would I gain by moving up to Max?

      Hi people..

      I'm currently on Mid and was wondering if I would have any improvement in speed by moving up to Max. I'm pretty sure the answer is going to be no but thought I'd ask anyway.

      cheers,

      C

      This is my current connection stats....

      Re: Would I gain by moving up to Max?

      Currently you have:

      Upstream rate = 416 Kbps, Downstream rate = 6080 Kbps

      If on Max that would change to approx:

      Upstream rate = 768 Kbps, Downstream rate = 6080 Kbps

      Advantages:

      Faster upload from 416 to approx 768
      No Cap of 40GB

      Disadvantages:

      Extra 5 per month

      Thanks for the swift reply. As I thought, not enough to gain really, think I'll stay as I am.

      I am currently on Sky Max and I have an upload speed of 416kbps, does this mean that Sky have put me on Mid instead of Max? My stats are:

      Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 7136 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 38.0 db 23.5 db
      Noise Margin 7.2 db 13.0 db

      Thanks.

      ^^^^^^^^^
      Yes!

      Check the BillingCentre on your MySky page to see what you are being charged for, you should also be getting a better download speed.

      I have checked the Sky billing centre and I am being charged for Sky Max. Do you think I should phone them up?

      Yes, you appear to be being charged for a product you are not getting. You should make an attempt to improve your wiring by reading the stickies in the Cable and Faceplate section of the Forum. Your attenuation should support 8-10Mb.
