      Everday Upgrade - will Sky re-do the DLM after?

      Hi Everyone,
      I am currently on Every day and thinking of upgrading to "unlimited". I currently am getting 3.1 mg down and 0.5mg up with the stats below (direct from faceplate).

      My question is simple; earlier in the year I had a lot of problems after DLM set my speed to 1.7mg. It took 20 to 30 phone calls before the line was manually set to the set to the current settings - even though before DLM iwas seeing a very stable 4.2mg. If I upgrade will I have to go through the same e.g. same down grade and then all the phone calls etc to have it manually set?

      The line will undergo testing again, not sure how well it will work this time but looking at your stats I doubt you will get anymore speed so the only thing you would get is the unlimited download alowance.

      Thanks Smithy99. Can I ask or request that they don't implement DLM again and if so are they likely to agree? Dave.

      I don't think so, you could always ring up and see if you can get CST to manually confgure it once it has started.
