      cheers guys, oh i know about the DLM, think its a bit daft, but understandable, still as fast as uko was, so not bothered, just so long as it doesnt drop to sub 500k speeds...

      Only really posted it because of what a huge drop was expecting more of a gradual speed drop, but ill give it until next weekend or so until i start worrying, esp after reading some of the speeds others have been getting, even after the DLM!

      Thats more like it and there are still two more days left, which you should see a little more speed ontop of what you have now, you may be one on the lucky ones that DLM gets right.

      Just 1 question, once dlm is done on Sunday/Monday, is that it, or will it still be regularly checked?

      Once its done its done as far as I am aware. If you arnt happy with the results then you can call sky and get them to override what its been set to by dlm. This does beg the question - why bother - although i guess theres plenty of people out there who dont know or care what they get set to in the end.

      If you login to MySky, click the Service Details (or something) link for broadband on the left and it will tell you the status of DLM.

      DLM will continously monitor your line (neither you nor CST can stop this). CST can however suspend DLM from applying new profiles.

      Guess it depends on how liberally you use the word estimate!
