      Sky 'upgrading' their systems today

      Not sure if this is for all Sky users or just in our area (Formby) but we had a letter through the post a few weeks back telling us that a systems upgrade would be taking place on the 1/7/11.

      It seems this upgrade has just taken place as we lost our connection for around 30 seconds or so this morning at 11am. I checked our router stats once it reconnected and it seems we now have 500kbps better download, and 300kbps better upload speed

      Previously our DL rate was always maxed at exactly 10.239Mbps and Upload was always around 800kbps

      Now DL is 10.800Mbps and UL is 1.1Mbps

      Did the letter say you were being moved onto Sky's network (Sky Voice and Broadband Network)?

      Erm.. I can't remember now. I just had the date written down on the calendar in case there was a problem.


      EDIT... Just had a listen to the 1571 on the phone and it different.. It seems now there is a menu option too.

      Transferred over to SVBN, it would seem.

      Neither, really. Just means you've been moved onto Sky's network in which data and voice run through their own equipment at the exchange.

      Ah ok thanks

      Just noticed the network type in the router stats now show MER so that's different too.
