      Fastpath on LLU

      Since when was fastpath an option on LLU

      Quote from official Sky forums

      "Hi All,*
      *
      Fastpath is generally an option we would not advise using due to the lack of any error correction, it can cause stability issues with your connection dropping out and in order to support this the speed of your line would need to be dropped. Fastpath can also cause issues with throughput speed.
      *
      We can enable Fastpath but only on Sky Broadband Unlimited and Sky Broadband Everyday Lite connections, we cannot enable this on Sky Broadband Connect."

      Strange why they wouldn't enable it on Connect when they're perfectly capable of doing so (same goes for LLU). Mind you, it wouldn't help anyway.

      My guess is that they're just trying to do support on the cheap and would rather have customers without any special requirements.

      My problem with that comment on the Sky forum is that I know that it can be done on connect.

      It can also be done if a cust is on a stinger although it's a sackable offence. So why are people from Sky saying that it can be done?

      If the line is good enough, Connect will be put on Fast automatically. Sky cannot put a Connect line on Fast, they have to request BT to do it.

      I can see Sky Help being inundated with requests to be put on Fast path. I think Robert has really put the cat among the pigeons, after years of saying it could not be done, he says it can. Sky Help staff, you have my commiserations.

      Probably just seen the drop down in LAMA and assumed it could be done. Only reason it's there is from the UKOL days when they were on the same gear and had the option. If Sky aren't going to be using it then it should be removed

      Re: Fastpath on LLU

      I bet we get inundated in work now with fastpath requests.

      I know the option is there but I wouldnt suggest to anyone that it would be applied.

      Dunno how they can do it on an ISAM.

      Unless they have access to puTTY.

      Re: Fastpath on LLU

      I can almost bet you that most requests will come from users with crap lines who think that Fast path will improve it, when the opposite is the case. Most lines need interleaving, like it or not, the only alternative would be Fast path on a much reduced speed, with a much higher noise margin.
