      Errm, Sky would you believe ?
      To the extent that unless you are on connect there is no chance of fastpath.
      Even on connect it is a very remote possibility.

      Erm, well it's possible to stick you on fastpath but not 'supported' by sky if you will. Good luck getting an agent that will do it for you.

      Yea good luck.
      I certainly wouldn't do it.

      Fast_path has no error correction - So it can be very unstable - Can lower pings but you can get bad packet loss.


      Why do you want Fast_path?

      Probably a bad decision anyway.

      Sky is the worst possible ISP for gaming, you can ask to have your max delays reduced to drop your ping, but that can also make your line unstable as well

      The easynet infrastructure doesn't seem to have very good access points to the rest of the internet and so the majority of people seem to have awful pings.

      I moved to O2 LLU and I have insnaely low pings (15-20 ms to BBC) and play on US severs with no problems what so ever.
      I'm a PC, and Windows 7 Backup saved my sanity when BitDefender imploded !!!

      Re: Who controls interleave/ fast path modes?

      I was mistakenly put on fastpath for a while. I didnt tell them but they did notice after a while and switch it back. Whilst on fastpath I had to increase my nm to around 10, which reduced my sync to around 12meg otherwise the errors were horrendous.
      As Adrian says O2 seem to have their network more sorted, I get 21ms pings to bbc about the same as I did on skys fastpath and O2 is interleaved.
