      Looking at your stats, provided it is not your line that is the problem, you should be looking at 16Mb+.

      Make sure a slot on Sky LLU is available on your exchange, don't even think of accepting Connect.

      Is there any way for me to make sure there's a slot available?

      I don't have my MAC code from my ISP yet as I'm giving them till the end of the week to give me positive results.

      Either phone, or go to their website and enter your details and it'll tell you whether you can get 'Unlimited'

      Yeah, Unlimited is available for me. Is that all I need to do, specify that I want Unlimited? I would have thought that's just covers the download limit restriction and not the fact that I want to be on their LLU gear

      I suggested you check LLU was available as several members have signed up for Unlimited and have been put on Connect as no slots were available at that time. This is supposed to be temporary until a slot becomes available, but the 'temporary' arrangement can run into months, even years in some cases. If it is reporting as available, go for it, Sky LLU is far better than any service using BTMax.

      I have Sky broadband Unlimited, but I have my calls and line rental with BT. I done this because I have read about many having slower broadband when line rental is with Sky.

      I've also heard that if there is a Sky broadband outage, then your telephone is out as well (that's if you have line rental with Sky).

      Silly question maybe but if there is a sky outage and you have your line with BT but calls through Sky does the calls part go down as well if there's an outage.
      Was debating about moving my line to Sky but have thought better of it and think I'll just move the calls to get the BB discount

      Calls shouldn't be affected as they're provided via BT Wholesale, thus provisioned over the BT end of things. That's not to say there can't be a MSO on the BT network that could potentially affect CPS.
