      The second part user name you need to use is the Lan port MAC address of your router (without the colons) followed by @skydsl. you'll find it on the sticker on the bottom of the router if for some reason no sticker You can also use the link How to get your router statistics For connect Customer the Bt test is what Sky will ask you to do the reason is Sky need to know your IP Profile and Actual IP Throughput Achieved During Test

      Well back have not been on skyuser for the last few days and guess what at 19:56 01/05/09 that is 1.4mbs traffic managed sad really. If all connect Customers over 3mbs from 5pm till Midnight on alternate nights or every third night and was not breaking any T&C was managed between 256kbps and 512kbps there would be less throttling

      14:05 09/05/09 Bt test afternoon does not happen day time it does weekends I think Sky should add that to their T & C before connect Customers can say anything oh sorry already have

      Low speeds used to be 4 nights then 3 nights not so bad now seems to be every night below 1mbs so as I have read tonight cram and if nothing happens that will surely mean big problems day and night so is Sky going to sacrifice connect or are they trying to get rid of the heavy users that could take sometimeit might work
      Sparkey CS said they are placing more and more people on the line thus slowing it down and in other words they are not going to do nothing about it but jam more people on thus slowing even more so think it time to move.
