      Line Connection Testing - How Often?

      Hi

      I joined Sky Everyday on 17 June and went through the initial testing period firstly at 3.0mb download and then at 6.8Mb down 0.4mb up after a few days where it's been rock steady with no drops until 17th August. Since then it's been reset to 6.0 mb down and 0.6 up. There is a message on MySky Service details to the effect that line connection testing was completed on 17/8/2009.

      Is line connection testing an ongoing/regular occurence? I thought it was just an initial set up test. I'm happy with the speeds given the estimate was 5.0Mb down and my average line stats (I always had 6.6Mb with BT.)


      Connection Speed 6136 kbps 606 kbps
      Line Attenuation 51.0 db 28.8 db
      Noise Margin 6.2 db 17.0 db

      (I switched to Sky Talk with line rental on 7/8 might this have triggered another test?)

      Thanks

      Terry
