      Hi Do you know if Sky has just upgraded your exchange to Sky LLU (Sky`s own equipment) Because the exchange Lutterworth on SamKnows - Telephone Exchange Search show no Sky upgrade. But Sky have unbundled exchanges started in June and I think still unbundling. What you need to know is has Sky unbundled your exchange or have been put on to Sky`s Connect package which is a Bt re-badged Max product.

      WTF..? Advice please...

      The sky rep said it would be Sky Connect but mentioned to expect only 512kps due to poor cabling to the flat.

      I can't believe it could be that bad as it's a recently refurbed building so would have all been new cables less than 4 years ago.

      Should I just give it a go and see..? I think the exchange is due for LLU upgrade next year sometime...

      Your flat might have new cabling. Unfortunately the BT lines leading to it might be old copper wires that were laid before I was born, and we're going back some time here......

      Who gave you a 512kbps estimate? Was it someone at Sky or some twonk in a shopping centre who is probably about as much use as a chocolate teapot?

      Hi As dholdi has said connect has been really bad. It is oversubscribed and not enough bandwidth to go around there are hundreds of posts about the issues connect Customers were having. I say were because a lot have migrated from Sly connect to various ISPs. Here`s another thread which was started to help connect Customers Sky Connect Broadband - Are you being slowed down? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. But as I said in a previous post Sky have been unbundling exchanges
      Started in June also July and maybe August. You might be one of the lucky ones. You could ask if your exchange has been or being upgraded.
