      Just had a letter saying Max is getting faster?

      Has anyone had this letter?

      I know BT are putting fibre optics in, but 1, I was told it was not until 2010 and also it is going about 3 miles or so out of my area so would not apply to the city.

      How are sky making the Max faster for customers?

      Thanks

      From what i have read on the forum, they are going to make it up to 24Mb and increasing the upstream speed.

      so in reality they are making it more like the packages that O2 and Be offer now.

      Yes but if they put it up to 24mb, it will still run on adsl, and I live 2.4km from exchange, so how are they going to make it faster without fiber.

      Weird.

      But would make my day if this happens soon.

      That's the whole point, apparently only 10% of people would benefit from the speed increase, although everybody should see a better upload speed.

      It has been said on another thread that people who get the letters are Sky Talk customers who are getting a price hike and so this is Sky trying to soften the blow with the news.

      It says our max customers, so that implies everyone.

      I dont count upload as faster BB.

      Will wait and see
