      Sky Broadband installing May 9th

      So I've managed to get a cracking deal for my broadband and phone for 9.99 a month for 12 months ; I was 23.49 for virgin and while it was 50meg I found it a tad expensive.
      Anyway, May 9th is my install date so it looks like i'm back to being a full time member on here

      Hi Ryan.

      How to get your Sky Router statistics
      If you have the black SR102, it'll be the same procedure as with the SR101.

      Basically they are fine for now.

      I trust that you have connected to the Master Socket.

      DLM should kick in soon, although this may be next week.

      You have a long line and are unlikely to get much above 5-6mb on your download speed.

      All connected to the master socket Scubbie!
      Not sure why they said I'd have needed an engineer to come install the broadband though.

      Yeah it's a long line Looking forward to fibre becoming available

      It used to be the case that if no one has used the BTO line for more than 12 months, a visit from BTO was always required.

      If that isn't the case it may well be that something flagged on the screen when the order was placed to advise of a possible visit.

      If you have already fitted a filtered faceplate, hide it if the BTO Engineer does turn up and ask nicely if he/she can fit a VDSL filtered faceplate.

      The engineer visit was cancelled as everything was able to be done from the exchange.
      Speeds are sitting at a consistant 3.5mb/s which is much more improved than the 1.2mb/s we used to receive last time with Sky.

      Hopefully this keeps up as it's fast enough for me given what I now do online
