      If the person that said it could be done has LAMA he might.

      Don't get why he even said it was possible though.

      We can enable Fastpath but only on Sky Broadband Unlimited and Sky Broadband Everyday Lite connections
      then
      Fastpath is not an option that is available on all connection types and can cause serious issues with your broadband connection as we do not support this.
      Seems he is contradicting himself.

      I don't know what role the guys on the helpforum play at Sky, but I highly doubt they'll have access to do it. If a case is created and escalated to CST requesting this, it won't be done and the case will be closed. Or, that should be the case anyway.

      Sky should actually have CST agents posting on the official forum as opposed to some random who doesn't know what they're on about

      I agree that CST wouldn't touch this case with a barge pole, but in the unlikely even the person that made the comment has LAMA then who knows.

      Let's just hope they don't do people's net as well.

      That would be a very good idea.

      Unless the person who made the comment is in CST. I highly doubt he is.

      If I'm in tier 1 and know that fastpath shouldn't be applied then he really should.

      Re: Fastpath on LLU

      Hi Shonk, my wife posted in that thread too, and we had fastpath put onto our line - it lasted a day. Last night we were getting pings of 25ms to bbc.co.uk, then this morning the line dropped and resynced at 12300 (it was 14335 before), rebooted the router and it went back up to 14335 but checked pings and they were back up to 40-42ms to bbc.co.uk.

      Our router isn't plugged into the master socket, so not sure if that would have made a difference or not, my wife's contacted them again and asked if we plug the router into the master socket and replace the microfilters with brand new ones supplied by sky, whether we could be put back onto fastpath to see if that'll fix it.

      Fingers crossed.

      whether we could be put back onto fastpath
      I think you will find that if you were on fastpath, it was a mistake, Sky do not support it. Robert could be in a bit of bother with what he posted.(and later retracted)

      If you are on Unlimited you can ask to be put on a Gamer profile or have your Delay reduced to 8, for a gamer that is the best you will get with Sky LLU.

      Re: Fastpath on LLU

      I think it was already on 8ms delay, never asked for a gamer profile, I had asked directly for delays to be reduced to 8ms before, but saw no difference from whatever it was before, as my ping has never changed from 40ms to bbc.co.uk until Robert put us onto fastpath.
