      Sky Base Question

      Hi,

      Just a question for a friend here who is thinking about getting Sky Base, Sky advertise this as 2Mb/s but is this the sync speed or the actual through put speed what you would expect from a speed test? Because if it is only the sync speed then in reality you can really only expect anything from 0.5-1Mb/s?

      The 2meg would be sync speed.

      You should expect to lose 10 to 15% in a speed test, to account for the overheads.

      Providing your friend could get the actual package, ie it is available an their exchange is capable, its not too bad for free.
