Increase my upload speed
Hi, I am trying to get my upload speed increased. Unfortunately whenever I ask Sky about it I don't get a response.
I recently asked them in an email 3 questions about the following.
1. Download speed.
3. Upload speed.
Well I got a response about 1 & 2, but they didnt respond about 3.
When I first connected to Sky I got a default speed of
4096 kbps download
945 kbps upload
Due to problems with the Sagem 2304N my speeds didnt get set properly, eventually leading to my download speed having to be set manually once the problems were sorted (although I have lost 220 kbps download with no satisfactory explanation, it was doing 9989 after the manual set)
Yet whenever I ask about upload I get no response.
Here is an extract from my latest e-mail from them :-
Thank you for contacting Sky Help Centre. We are unable to increase your line speed as it already been configured to offer 10Mbps, but the line will not match it. Below is the configuration settings for the internet connection:
Port Status Up
Trained In Download Speed 9787 Kbps
Trained In Upload Speed 797 Kbps
Configured Download Speed 10240 Kbps
Configured Upload Speed 800 Kbps
Max Attainable Rate Down 10820 Kbps

The automatic system we use is Dynamic Line Management that optimises the service as high as possible. We cannot force the line speed to increase if the system is already being asked to provide a higher speed that what it will provide.

ADSL Link Downstream Upstream

Once again I got 945 kbps up when I 1st conncected to Sky.
I reckon I should be getting at least 945 kbps up now & possibly a bit more, instead of the 797 kbps that I'm currently getting (I know they have set it to 800 kbps).
But for some strange reason I cannot seem to provoke a response from Sky about my upload speed.
So I would like to know if peeps agree I should be able to get more uploiad speed, & I would also like to know how to get a response from Sky about this, as they seem to just ignore it.Is the pub open yet?

Re: Increase my upload speed
Looking at your stats there does look like there can be a little improvement for your upload speed. In order to have this done I would suggest going through the contact us section of the Sky.com help centre and selecting the relevant drop downs for broadband technical queries.
An adviser within the contact will need to access your account and look at the profile of your line. It would probably be best to speak to an adviser about your line profile in order to have a more involved discussion.Sky eService Team
