      Was on AoL/Carphonewarehouse previously little problems altho some decay of 8meg during peak (3/4meg~) but still within reason.
      As with most people join sky to save money but get terrible service.

      -512k throttle connection between these times (5-11pm) even with skybb unlimited.
      ontop of Limiting websites such as youtube/iplayer ( even if it would load a 280p 1min vid in an hour.. )


      suggestions/help/tips welcome

      thanx David

      Hi The Broadband package you are on is Sky connect which is a Bt rebadged product and is traffic Managed 4pm till midnight. The upstream 448kbps is the connect upstream for Sky. Is Scarborough your exchange.

      Re: Sky Broadband Unlimited 5-11pm Trottling

      Filey is my exchange its pritty close to the boro..

      im getting another phoneline installed on the 28th, and getting talktalk LLU on it but trying to get this one fixed, but i guess if this is classified as still connect (altho i read in another thread unlimited was not Traffic managed?), its still a throttled abomination..?

      is there a way of contacting sky and geting this profile re-classified to a none throttled version?

      Hi Filey has not been Sky LLU upgraded yet you can check on SamKnows - Broadband Availability - Filey (MYFIL) Exchange Sky are Upgrading Exchanges
      as for Filey only Sky know when the upgrade will happen. These exchanges were unbundled from November Latest Sky Unbundled Exchanges on SamKnows

      Unlimited is not Throttled you are on Connect not unlimited. Have a look at Sky Broadband - Code of Practice

      Hi have a look at the link. Sky Broadband Deal - Sky Broadband Unlimited free for 3 months - Find out more The other thing is to be on Unlimited you have to have your exchange Sky LLU which Filey is not only TalkTalk supply LLU at your exchange.

      How much are you paying? You're not on Unlimited going by those stats (as said, 448kbps upstream is Connect)

      15 sounds to much to me as you also have TV and I am paying 15 and I have no other Sky services.

      Could be a good excuse to get out of any contract you may be in.

      EDIT:

      Is Connect not more costly?

      I think 15 is the Sky max price if you haven't signed up for sky talk, or a new 12month contract.

      Some ISPs' availability checkers will tell you if you are on a LLU service eg ADSL24 - ADSL, ADSL2+, LLU and Fibre (FTTC) Availability Checker
