      Enjoy Faster Broadband - When Do They Apply DLM?

      Currently on Broadband Max and recieved the "Enjoy Faster Broadband" e-mail from Sky on 10- September so assumed they'll be applying some DLM on my line. Haven't seen any difference on my line over the last week (all is as it has been for past 2/3 years). Was just wondering how long it usually is before Sky "improve / screw up" my line from receiving the e-mail.

      It really could be anytime. You'll more than likely see the upload shoot up a bit when it starts and DLM can last anything up to 10 days - sometimes only a couple of days. Just leave it alone at this point. Make sure you've got everything properly filtered in the house and using no extension cables for the DSL and it may do some good (on occassions, it does )

      The other thing is I don't keep my router on 24/7 - generally only when the computer is switched on - will this effect DLM?

      Yes it will. Routers are designed to be kept on and will do no harm doing so.

      As joss said, it will effect DLM. The router usually re-syncs in the early hours of the morning and adjusts the speeds, and if it's not turned on most of the time, then on sky's end it will probably say on sky's end 'DLM was unable complete' leaving you with a dire speed. Coupled with the turning off/on, DLM may see this as the router re-syncing and thus come to the conclusion that it is a fault doing this and cap the line. That means your downstream & upstream will be configured to a certain speed and no matter what you do, you're not going above that unless you call sky and get the cap lifted.

      Just leave it on, make sure the physical set-up is correct and if your line can handle 8+mb then you may be one of the few who actually don't have a problem with it.

      I would just phone them and ask for the speed to be increased.
